My daughter, Lana’s, favorite stuffed animal has always been a pink bear since she could understand what she was holding. Her final addition to the Animals of Oz series focuses on the Bears of Bear Center in Oz. These are toy stuffed bears run by the Lavender Bear king and his adviser the Little Pink Bear.
On the back of the painting she wanted a quote by L. Frank Baum. It reads: “Time is given for us to be happy and for no other reason. When we waste time, we waste happiness.”
What are some of your favorite characters from the land of Oz?
Deciding to not have the carpenter in this scene was a wise choice by my daughter. Lana wanted to focus on the series’ animals, so here’s her vision of the Walrus and Oysters. She chose a quote for the back of the painting by Lewis Carroll that reads: “Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well.”
What are some of your favorite characters in Wonderland?
My daughter, Lana, returns with her latest painting. This is part 1 of her “Animals of Wonderland” series. Here’s her version of the Cheshire Cat and Breadandbutterfly.
Not bad for a ten year old.
The brainstorming and writing has been incessant as of late. Wrapping up this novel has proven to be a challenge for me because it will be the final entry in this 12 book saga. Making it stand alone and also tie up all the unanswered questions from the previous novels is probably one of the most difficult things I’ve done, but it will be well worth the wait. The historical and mythological tie ins for this book exceeds everything I’ve done so far and in a way that will have the reader on the edge of their seat.
That being said, here’s the cover reveal for CONSUMED BY WAR. My brother, Dan Pipito, did the art and came up with the concept for this. Be sure to follow him @dpipito or check out his children’s art @pintsizedpages.
Let me know what you think.

Her goal was to portray that despite all our differences, we can all get along. I think she’s on to something with that line of thinking.
She is a big fan of the original L. Frank Baum Oz novels, so she wanted to start there with an animals of Oz series. First up is the Cowardly Lion on the yellow brick road by the forest’s edge. On the back of the canvas she wanted a quote from the novel THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ… “True courage is in facing danger when you are afraid.”
I asked why she wanted this quote in particular, and she claimed that it takes courage to put skills and talents out there knowing that people will criticize it. I couldn’t agree more, but I think this little lady has a fine future in front of her.
