Lobo is a wolf who must eat a succulent rabbit stew while the moon is full or he will go cuckoo. He tries a variety of temptations to entice a bunny out of his burrow. The little rabbit uses his wits to escape becoming an entree.
Each initial sketch is transferred to illustration board. Then the finished painting is completed by brushing a ground wash on the entire board and layering a mixed media technique using gouache, oils and colored pencil for details.
This title is available in English–only or Embedded Text (English with Spanish sprinkled throughout) editions.
