As a follow-up to the previous post, thank you to all the kind people who thought I was the cute little girl on the bottom step. Unfortunately, that’s my younger sister. So I guess that makes a monkey out of me. At least that’s what my sister always told people.
So I’m planning my revenge…
I’ve been working on art for the African Animals book, and have a partially completed painting of a monkey. I think I’ll do one similar to this, but paint me into the picture with the baby monkey. Then we can each have a picture called “My Sister and Me.”

I promised a story, and this one’s about my early years in Africa. Here’s a picture from that time. In our family this picture has been titled, “My Sister and Me.” (And, yeah, I know that title’s grammatically incorrect, but that’s the least of my worries.) Which one’s the sister? And which one’s “me”?
