Review quote "Oh, my! Esther the purple gorilla was in trouble because she forgot all about shopping for Hanukkah. She did have a shopping list prepared, but there wasn't anything on it for her friends. Well, maybe Sarah who was a monkey, but certainly not Hal who was a hyena. Gefen Publishers. Hachai Publishing.

How did you decide to illustrate with such humor? I particularly like the shopping lists, the books on the bookshelves, and my favorite, the lion and antelope at the book stall. So many publishers work to short deadlines and short fees these days that the quality of work suffers in the end. TWM: Did you conduct any research? I made lots of sketches of real animals before translating those into the characters. The way Esther and the other characters moved had to look right even though they were humanised.
TWM: How long did it take to develop the illustrations? AR: I like to include a lot of detail to keep the reader on the page soaking up the story rather than speed reading through the book. AR: Even though the images are generated on the computer I still prefer to keep that hand drawn quality to my illustrations. All the characters are drawn in pen before being scanned into photoshop where the image is coloured.
TWM: Jane, what was your reaction when you saw the art? TWM: Did the two of you have any correspondence or conversations? JS: Not until after the book was published. I wrote Andy to thank him for his absolutely wonderful artwork that adds so much to the story. TWM: Will you be doing any joint promotions?
Growing up although she never completely grew up on Long Island, Jane wrote stories and essays and developed a sense of humor to deal with the indignities of childhood. At Brandeis University, she majored in Comparative Literature. Jane is also a writing tutor, teaches a Lexington Community Education class on writing for kids, and gives author talks in schools, bookstores and libraries. She and her husband, Alan Ticotsky, an educator and science author, live in Lexington, MA and have two grown children who live in the Boston area.
Andy has always loved drawing, One of his earliest memories is of his dad bringing home reams of scrap paper from the printers for him to use because he went through so much.
