Check out this picture! And that blog!

No, not the one that got you here, the one below.  This will be one of the illustrations in The Toki-Girl and the Sparrow-BoyBook Two, Chasing Dreams.

This print is by Hiroshige, dated 1833-35.  It's titled "crane," but it doesn't look like one.  With the orange-tipped feathers, the downturned beak and the orange face -- all characteristics of the Toki -- this looks exactly like a Japanese Crested Ibis, which is a Toki.

I also have a Guest Blogger post in Chris Brecheen's wonderful Writing About Writing.  As we start publication, there's a lot to say about this end of the process.  Check Chris's blog out.  Lots of interesting and amusing material there.  Including mine!
