Splotchy, Scary, Monstery artwork by children

We’ve been burping our way through Mumbai and Delhi over the past few months now and have been delighted to have so many children join us at the readings everywhere. At the end of the reading, we often give the children an opportunity to create their very own Splotch monsters.

They get a paper with either a colourful splotch of paint or some body parts drawn in by the illustrator of the book, Anitha Balachandran. Armed with markers, crayons and a really big imagination, children have amazed us with the variety of monsters they’ve come up with! We caught a few on camera and have set up an online gallery hosted on the Icky, Yucky, Mucky facebook page.

Do click on the link above, browse, comment, caption…be amazed!
