Sneak Peek Guessing Game & Book Giveaway


Hi, My Dear Sillies.
   Here's another sneak peek of my nearly newborn babe. Expected date of Delivery: June 4th. Expected Size: 6 by 9 inches and very slender (poor thing. I won't be breastfeeding.). Sex: None. Well, perhaps implied, but it's family friendly and G-Rated. Colorful and poetic too.
   This shenanigan is thanks to friend and phenomenal artist, Steve Ferchaud.

   Hint 1: It's for mature children and immature adults. 

   Hint 2: There's a cannon in the tale.

   Hint 3:  It's an adaptation of one of my favorite children's books.
  
   The person with the most correct answers will win a free autographed copy. I'll refrain from stating whether you're right or wrong, until we get to the end.  It's okay if more than one of you are correct. But the first who's right gets an extra-credit point. [Apologies to the very few people who can't play along, because you already know the particulars.] I might be inclined to award points based on creativity alone.

       What just happened?

                                                    What instrument is this part of?


Hint 4 and (FAKE) fun fact:
Remember this creature? Here's his (FAKE) quote on the back cover:
"Phew! It's over! I didn't get paid nearly enough for this gig."


Play! Be silly!
Happy Friday and weekend.
Love ya!

  2. Love the porcu-bear. Shame on you for not paying him enough.
    The instrument? LOUD. And probably brass.
    The cannon is firing rainbows. But hasn't got it quite right yet.

    1. He's really bitter, EC. I thought I was being generous - half of minimum wage plus the notoriety. He never had it so good.

  3. Cannon is shooting fireworks or stars. The instrument, an earhorn thingy.

  4. cannon is shooting rainbow Skittles. The instrument is a flugelhorn (very Dr. Seussian) and the porcu-bear had to save the damsel from drowning in a chocolate fountain.
    Enjoy your final weeks of maternity.

  8. The cannon is shooting out a magician who glows with colorful rays of light. It looks like the toe of his shoe sticking down up in the corner. I will guess the instrument is a saxophone. Looking forward to seeing the final product. :) Have a nice weekend!

  9. The instrument? Is it a loudspeaker of sorts?
    I remember the porcupine - very exciting Robyn. Will there be a eversion?

      Thank you, Anthony. Be well.

  10. I am clueless about stuff like this, maybe an elephant's trunk is the instrument playing a tune. I like how soft the art is...I mean color wise and it looks soft not with hard edges. Looks like it could be puffy, something children should like.

  11. I think someone shoved Mentos and Coke in the cannon and it exploded. The instrument is a shlongophone. My father-in-law plays one.

    1. Wow - there's really such a thing as a "shlongophone"? Oh my, great comic material with that word. Thank you, Sherry. Smiles.
