THROWBACK THURSDAY: REMORAS APPEAR

Remoras Appear, by Elizabeth B Martin

These drawings were supposed to be part of a series (one must think big!) of an intrepid team saving the oceans.

Last week’s TBT showed the team starting out on their mission in their Super Sonic Sunny Sub to save a baby orca who has lost its mother. Quite soon, a huge shape overshadows the Super Sonic Sunny Sub. Ernest is the only one who realizes it is a basking shark. They are the second largest in the world. It is covered with remoras.

By this time in the story, I thought I might try speech bubbles and tear out pages from Ernest’s diary. Have the book sort of look like The Magic School Bus series. At the time I didn’t realize I was drawing think bubbles!

Are they about to be attacked by the shark? If you want to find out, you will have to check out my TBT this following Thursday. You can also go back to my site and see the first six TBTs showing this book.
