My Pictures after the Storm
With its funky format, clever rhymes, and funny images, My Pictures after the Storm is a witty and inventive take on “before” and “after.”
What happens to a lion after a storm? His mane is swept into a disheveled mess. What becomes of a pear after an elephant passes by? Compote! A frog after a spell? A prince. And the room after a battle? A big mess!
My Pictures after the Storm will have you chuckling at the after-effects of a dive bomb, a hairdresser, a flu, and more.
