When I die, maybe I’ll leave my brain to scientists. Because apparently, my mind is hard-wired to think about children’s books all the time! As I mentioned in my previous posts in this series, I can’t help but see kidlit everywhere — and I can’t help but take pictures to share with you guys!
When I went on vacation recently, my friends and I visited the amazing glass museum in Tacoma, Washington (near Seattle). Right outside the museum, there’s an incredible display of creations by the famous glass artist Dale Chihuly.
I immediately noticed this one, which reminded me of the mechanical creature from Shaun Tan’s story The Lost Thing:
THEN I saw this little glass guy, and I was like, “Wait, no… this reminds me of the Lost Thing with its legs!”
Now I can’t decide! Which one do YOU think looks more like the Lost Thing?
