Dan Hanna's Take on Shrek (and more!)

Knowing illustrator Dan Hanna is a big William Steig fan, I asked him to do a little fan-art for us—and he delivered with sketches that had me laughing out loud in my little corner of the Flatiron Building. Here are Dan’s homages to Bill’s books: Shrek!, CDB, Amos & Boris, Doctor de Soto, Pete's a Pizza, and The Amazing Bone.

You can see more of Dan’s illustrations in The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen; its sequel, The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark, will be published this Fall.


Beth Potter is an associate editor at Farrar Straus Giroux Books for Young Readers.

These are great - especially the Amos and Boris ones (possibly because that's my favorite of the Steig originals!)
"If Amos was a Facebook friend instead of a Real Friend" - LOL!
thanks for sharing these,
Namaste,
Lee

LOVE these! I'll have to share them with my teenage son, who once dressed up as Pete on Book Character Day.
