She’s adept with quips, quiches, and power tools. Now, you can add monsters to the list. Not the chainsaw kind, but the serious kind that hide under your bed and in your closet.
Lyn Ellen Lacy (aka the Mystery Woman for regular readers) is the guest curator for “Sendak and Co.: Children’s Book Illustrations Since “Where the Wild Things Are” that features 170 original drawings by 33 artists. The show runs through Jan. 20 at the Appleton Museum in Ocala, FL.
The show is a draw.
And the exhibition is breaking attendance records. More than 1,000 kids brought their grown-ups to play at the Appleton’s recent “Monstrous Bash” for family day. Click here.
There's a chance the show might go on the road. The museum has received requests from other museums and public libraries across the nation.
Lyn Ellen, also known world-wide as my high school sweetheart, has written four books on children, creativity, and learning. She’s an expert on children’s literature and sometimes insists on reading me to sleep.
I just love her.
