Chris Raschka follows up his Caldecott-winning picture book A Ball for Daisy with Daisy Gets Lost. Here, the author shares unused illustrations from the new book.
Chris Raschka doesn't stop working on a book
until it's perfect. As a result, there are often many extra illustrations that
don't get used in the final book. Here are a few outtakes from Daisy Gets Lost.
1) Chris delivered many different color versions of the
final jacket. Here is one that wasn't used.
2) Here's a jacket sketch that Chris drew in the
Random House offices when he delivered the final interior artwork. In the end,
this one wasn't picked because of concerns it would look too much
like A Ball for Daisy.
