Pearl has new skates.
They are real skates
(not double runners),
and she can't wait to try them.
Pearl inches out onto the frozen pond.
But instead of twirling,
Instead of spinning,
she falls -- splaaat!
Pearl has new skates.
They are shiny white
with red tassels,
and she loves them.
Will Pearl ever skate in real life the way she skates in her dreams?

Holly Keller says, "I have been making collographs, or printed collages, for many years, but this is the first time I have ever used them to illustrate a book. The image is made by pasting cut paper, cardboard, and various textured surfaces onto another piece of cardboard that becomes the background. The whole collage is covered with acrylic gesso, inked, and printed with the help of a manually operated etching press. Each collograph is then hand painted with watercolors. I used several types of textured materials in this book—Snake's body is a mesh onion bag, and Squirrel was created with cupcake pan liners." Holly Keller is the creator of many popular books for children. She lives in New Haven, Connecticut.
