Squirrel Book 8 of 10

Chapter 7 has two illustrations. This one is when an owl scoops up one of the family dogs. Rocky runs out to make a loud commotion, which startles the owl into dropping the dog. The author says it’s a true story.

She paid for a half page illustration for this one. When designing the layout, I realized that the image would benefit from as much height as possible. I thought, well, it’s supposed to be a half page, but we didn’t specify which half. Usually half pages are landscape (horizontal) format top or bottom half pages. But a left or right half page would meet the requirements also. I was proud of how it turned out.

A cartoon illustration of an owl in mid-flight.  It's just dropped a white lapdog who is depicted in mid-fall and terrified.  Below them both on the ground is a squirrel chittering and waving its arms.  The scene includes a gravel driveway, bordered by grass going off into the distance.  There are trees and hills way off behind.  There are dandelions in the foreground grass.
