All sorts of animals flutter and hum, dance and stretch, and slither and leap their way through this joyful collection of poems in English and Spanish. Julie Paschkis’s poems and art sing in both languages, bringing out the beauty and playfulness of the animal world.
I am a painter and illustrator. Over the years I have exhibited many paintings and work in various other media (including cut paper, embroidery, quilts and bread). I have illustrated more than 25 books. I design fabric and make quilts. Although my work flows in many directions, all of the ideas and creations are connected. I like to make things, to read, to draw and to play outside. The work (and play) I do in one area inspires the work and play in others. Ideas beget ideas. I live in Seattle with my husband Joe Max Emminger and our cat Ruby. My cat and I both like looking at birds, although we have different intentions.
