Animals of Wonderland #3: Walrus and Oysters
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.”

Animals of Wonderland: #2 The Caterpillar
My daughter painted another in her Animals of Wonderland series. The Caterpillar was her focus this time, and she included her initials “LRP” in the hookah smoke. A quote by Lewis Carroll is on the back of the painting that says, “One of the hardest things in the world is to convey a meaning accurately from one mind to another.”
Animals of Wonderland #1: Cheshire Cat & Breadandbutterfly
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.
On the 11th Day of Christmas…
ON THE ELEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME… 11 hic-hic-hiccups…
10 time travelers, 9 Aliens, 8 conspiracies, 7 super heroes, 6 corrupt files, 5 Demon Spawns! 4 lost souls, 3 werewolves, 2 vampires, and zombies in a story.
I’m secure enough to admit that I really enjoy the classic fairy tales. Disney did a great job of bringing family friendly versions of them to life, and whether dark or happy, the stories are timeless. When my daughter was born I wrote a children’s book for her called A LITTLE GIRL IN THE LAND OF THE HICCUPS. I was heavily inspired by things like Baum’s Oz stories and Carroll’s Wonderland. After finding success with my first children’s book I went back and began rereading some of the ones that inspired me and they are still enjoyable to this day. Depicted here is a rare find called the OZ/Wonderland War. It was a 4 issue mini-series that places both realms in the same reality, and although a little goofy is an enjoyable comic if just to see the characters unite and interact. What is your favorite fairy tale type story?
