Lillian got inspired by a drawing she created yesterday …. This is an incredible story and looks like it will be the story of how Mr. Happy Tree came to be.
Lillian drew a tree last summer that we named Mr. Happy Tree and I told her he is going to be a great book character … The 2nd picture is Mr Happy Tree from last summer. Hope you enjoy …
“One day, a bird picked up a seed to eat. A few minutes later, the bird decided that it wasn’t the right seed. The bird threw it back down. That was the beginning of the Happy World.
