Gleaning inspiration from the things around me, I stacked a few books the other day. 'Goodnight Moon', 'The Tower Treasure' (Hardy Boys), 'The Complete Adventures of Curious George', and Richard Scarry's 'Best Picture Dictionary Ever'.
I love how certain images from books trigger memories from childhood - much like how smells bring one back. Curious George flooding the house while trying to clean up his ink mess always reminds me of my grandparents' house, and the watermelon-filled trucks and pickle-shaped cars of Richard Scarry bring me right back to the library from my elementary school.
