Save or Trade?

It's been a while since I've posted any Family Trading Cards, so... here are some more.  We have well over 400 cards currently in play, so the following are a mere sampling.  The ones I'm sharing today come primarily from the collections that Gracie and Isaac have saved.  Enjoy!

"Homage" by Isaac

We have well over 2,100 children's books at home in our collection. Dad told the kids to pick their favorite story and draw a literary tribute to it. The following "homage" pictures are the result....

Dad has to say, I think Isaac's design here is the best imagining of the Horned King I have EVER seen! Way cool!
