    I think “Illustrates” is a bit of a stretch here

  2. Melissa Bailey says:

    This is in response to the comment by David and wondering why he is questioning the term “illustrates”. I take offense to this, as I drew and painted each page of this story by hand.

    il⋅lus⋅tra⋅tor 1. an artist who makes illustrations: an illustrator of children’s books.
    2. a person or thing that illustrates.
    TO illustrate, is to furnish with drawings or artwork. Melissa personally drew each of the pictures by hand, and hand painted them for the book. So David, are you even sure what you are talking about? Melissa, you did a great job!
