There and Back again, Pages 57 to 60

I'm incredibly behind on posting my little illustrations and am determined to get caught up (well, slowly and over time).  You might notice I've stopped noting the page number on the front of the illustrations.  I was growing increasingly dissatisfied looking at each page with the page number on it and although I hate to change something so obvious to the series at this point I decided why not.  So now, no page numbers.  For now, anyway, I can always go back and put them on later.

Thank you Bonnie! :) I'm so happy you like them. If you liked this batch, hopefully you'll like the next 20 or so waiting to post (or is it 30?) as they continue along much like these.
