The text of that section was:
Quote
Would you eat them
in a box?
Would you eat them
with a fox?
Not in a box.
Not with a fox.
Not in a house.
Not with a mouse.
I would not eat them here or there.
I would not eat them anywhere.
I would not eat green eggs and ham.
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.

Would you? Could you?
in a car?
Eat them! Eat them!
Here they are.
I woould not ,
could not,
in a car
You may like them.
You will see.
You may like them
in a tree?
I would not, could not in a tree.
Not in a car! You let me be.

I do not like them in a box.
I do not like them with a fox
I do not like them in a house
I do mot like them with a mouse
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like green eggs and ham.
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.

Here are some pics of details...
the door on the house opens:
this box unhinges on the right.........to show the answer:
(there are green eggs in that tree, btw!) it flips up to give the response, and that's also where i signed it:

the response to this question is on the flip-side of the car, and the car gets pulled to reveal more of the poem...

Baby’s Boat
Part 1/Title Page – (thatkid)

Part 2 – (katara)
Baby's boat's the silver moon,
Sailing in the sky,
Sailing o'er the sea of sleep,
While the clouds float by.
Part 3 – (stellou)

Sail, baby, sail,
Out upon that sea,
Only don't forget to sail
Back again to me.
Back again to me.
Part 4 – (blupaisan)

Baby's fishing for a dream,
Fishing near and far,
His line a silver moonbeam is,
His bait a silver star.
Part 5 – (thatkid)

Sail, baby, sail,
Out upon that sea,
Only don't forget to sail
Back again to me.
Back again to me.

I received from curiousfae!  She typed out my section of the story in gorgeous type on photo paper, then did an absolutely wonderful job illustrating what is going on!  Here is the bit she was focusing on -
Paprika put everything into a bowl.
Duff wrapped his giant tail around the spoon. When he stirred, glops of smashed banana landed on Paprikas cheek.
Paprika stuck out her tongue and licked it off.  Then she shook her finger at Duff.
Hold the spoon in your paws, she scolded.
But my tail stirs better, said Duff.  It goes round and round.  My paws only go back and forth.
Paprika stuck her finger into the bowl.  You are right, she said, tasting the batter.  Round and round stirring makes it taste better.
Duff poked his claw into the batter and tasted it.  Yum! he roared.
Paprika took another taste.
Duff took another taste.
After two hundred tastes, the bowl was empty.
Mmmmmm, said Duff.  Wonderful pancakes.
Yes, agreed Paprika and licked the bowl clean.
and here is her picture, which is think is incredible! -

it has EVERYTHING in there, doesn't it?  I have no idea how one makes such a thing - I can only do hand drawn stuff , so I am floored by this presentation.  Thank you so much, curiousfae!!

I've received a wonderfully cute and detailed page from the talented calluna! Thanks so much!

Part 1 of Annabel Lee by Edgar Allen Poe
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.
I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love -
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

The words on this page are embroidered and the fabric is a pouch in which she put her artist info card and another little poem. Nice!


My favorite part is Edgar Allen Poe carrying a stuffed pig on wheels. LOL!


Thanks again, calluna!

I have a wonderful work of art to show off from stellou.  She claims that it is her first watercolor.  I think she is a natural!

This is the text that accompanies it -

So far she is the only one to put a small bit of illustration on the text page - very clever!
thank you so much, stellou!  I love your work.

Here is what I received from sailorgirlbonk - she did two whole pages for me!!  I think her dragon is just adorable!


Look at how Duff is eyeing Paprika with tender love!  So wonderful.  Thank you, sailorgirlbonk!  you did a great job!  I am very nervous because everyone is providing text and I provided only illustrations for my partners.  I hope i did not misunderstand...
