ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [WALKING TO THE WEDDING]

CONOVER,CHRIS. ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [WALKING TO THE WEDDING p.[11-12]]. Offered here is a double page watercolor used 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 15 1/2" wide x 9 1/2", signed. The scene shows all of the wedding party and the guests in all their finery, walking to the wedding chapel. There are 4 boxes that are blank where the text would be inserted. Its a great image. 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.
