Hello Elizabeth:Oh, how we have laughed at this illustration! For us, it is more a reflection of human nature [especially of tourists] than anything else. So busy looking through binoculars [or, our pet hate, taking photographs] to notice what is right under their noses. Except, of course, the small child who misses nothing. This is a perfect tableau of the 'human condition'.And, we love the giraffes too!!
Well done. I like the two "kids" nose to nose.
so nice illustration :) pleasure to watch!
Perfectly delightful... How we do overlook those special moments trying to catch the wonder!
Great illustration! I love the expressions of the giraffes--the parents seem as curious as the tourists.
This is the perfect poster I would want if I visited the zoo or the San Diego Wild Animal Park or some such. This is really wonderful.
Ooh, I love this! Such wonderful expressions! Love the giraffe parents looking curiously over the van! Great!
Wonderful...kids are always more observant than adults, aren't they?
Very funny and true: kids always tell you they have seen the most incredible things; proud parents too often don't believe them! Hurray for kids!
Hehe, wonderful illustration! I love it so much. What a great scene.
Elizabeth, I love how I always go look at your blog and find a wonderful surprise! this is just fabulous. Especially the baby giraffe and the little boy... Lovely! Susanna
Lol that first comment is so true, and you captured that perfectly... I love the little details in this, like the way that the van is tilted, and then the little boy balances it out.
This is wonderful. Excellently drawn and so clever. I really enjoyed it thanks!
Love it! The bright colors of the little boy's hat draws attention to him. I love the way the adults are oblivious to what is going on behind them.
This is so funny!! And what a great drawing too.I also love the description of your blog title!!Have a great day:)
