ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [LOOKING IN THE WOODEN TRUNK]

CONOVER,CHRIS. ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [LOOKING IN THE WOODEN TRUNK] p. [10]. Offered here is the half page watercolor used opposite the full page picture of Miss Mousie dressing for the wedding and below the third page of verse in Conover's Froggie Went A-Courting published by Ferrar Strauss Giroux in 1986. It is the story of a handsome humanized, seafaring frog's wooing of Miss Mousie. An entire world of humanized creatures is created around this traditional song with text retold by Conover. Reviewed by School Library Journal as a 'tour de force.'. This illustration measures 6" wide x 4". Two little mice are searching for wedding clothing in a wooden trunk while a third stands and watches. Adorable. Conover has been illustrating children's books since 1974. Her work is noted for rich colors and incredible attention to detail, some of which is executed using a magnifying glass for accuracy. There is plenty to look at but without the overcrowding that hampers so many modern children's books.
