Wee Peter Pug was one of my mother’s favorite books as a child. I found her childhood copy while going thru her things after she passed away. Originally published in 1915, it showed signs of being thoroughly loved, but was falling apart and held together with safety pins! My goal is to preserve this delightful story – maintaining the charm and beauty that captivated a generation – while introducing it to a whole new audience.
The original color illustrations are included in the back of this book, along with a brief biography of Ernest Aris, the creator of both the story and the pictures. Turning the illustrations into black and white works for the adult colorist creates an opportunity for ‘grown-up children’ to interact with this story in a whole new way.
