I had previously known of Mercer Mayer as the guy who wrote the "Little Critter" books I read as a child, but had never heard of the "Professor Wormbog" book...and thankfully, the local small-town library in Medina just happened to have the book...so I could have more reference pictures than the one on the cover (which does not show the Zipperump-A-Zoo).
I have a deadline to finish all three by March 13th. What have I gotten myself into? It's going to be challenging, but I always say I'm up for a challenge. (Want a little sauce on those words you're going to eat Kira?)
