Lightwing McFrog, Manager of the New York Echoes
It’s Small Graces time again, and look at the beauty that’s up for bidding this week, September 13-17th: an original acrylic painting by author/illustrator Brian Lies, based on his latest picture book, Bats at the Ballgame (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010)!
This is the third book in the New York Times Bestselling Bats
series — official pub date was September 6th, and this week it’s listed at #7! The 4" x 6 " painting is one of several baseball card profiles; I must say I’m quite fond of McFrog’s long whiskers and that NY cap (shhh . . . don’t tell my NH Red Sox relatives)!
As before, 100% of the proceeds of this FCB auction will provide support for author/illustrator visits and residencies in under-served urban schools. Don’t miss your chance to own this one-of-a-kind, signed, unpublished piece of art at an affordable price, while helping a good cause. Just click through to Ebay to place your bid!
