JACKIE URBANOVIC is happy to announce a poetry book she illustrated, written by Jack Prelutsky.
I've Lost My Hippopotamus has received starred reviews in both Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal.
Jackie commented, "It was an honor to work with Jack's poems and also a lot of fun. I haven't had many opportunities to do illustrations for older children, and it gave me lots of room to be even sillier than usual!"
“Urbanovic's black-and-white ink cartoons increase the laugh factor and add a touch of whimsy.”
School Library Journal
“Urbanovic’s blithe pen-and-ink illustrations offer playfully literal interpretations of clever hybrids like a ‘Spellican’ (‘a most talented bird/ That’s able to spell/ Any difficult word,’ pictured with a craw full of letters) and an ‘Elephantom,’ rising from a gravestone.”
