Cozy Red Elephant

The staff and pals of the Eric Carle Museum have taken it upon themselves to insure that my large sculpture, The Red Elephant, remains cozy for the rest of the New England spring by "Yarn Bombing" him:

Besides being great fun, The Red Elephant's new look is in service of promoting pals Mac Barnett & Jon Klassen's new book Extra Yarn. This is the first of what I hope will be a series of costume changes for the sculpture.

You can see all the work (and fun) that went into this project on the Carle's blog.


Plus, here's a nice, quick review of I BROKE MY TRUNK! along with some other early readers from the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
