The Bushytails at Halloween

Just in time for Halloween fun!
Meet Benjamin and Emma Bushytail.

Soon leaves on trees will be a memory, the frost will be on the pumpkin and we’ll be headed toward winter. Squirrels will be trying to remember where they have buried all of their nuts so they have enough food to make it through the winter. Some squirrels have been in school since September, such as Benjamin and Emma Bushytail.

Now Emma and Benjamin are putting down their studies to plan their Halloween costumes so they can go Trick or Treating at the tree homes in their neighborhood. Benjamin has decided to be a skeleton and Emma is going to be a witch. Both are going to carry pumpkin baskets that Momma Squirrel bought to hold their candy.

Do you like paper Dolls? I do. They were always my favorite when I was little because I could make new outfits, any color I wanted, with just a sheet of paper, a pencil and some crayons.

The Bushytails were drawn by a very famous paper doll artist, Kathy Lawrence, in 1992. Ms. Lawrence grew up around paints and brushes because her mother, Queen Holden, was also an artist. Kathy Lawrence has designed many fun paper dolls that you can order from The Shackman Store found here. You will find the Bushytails with outfits for a wedding, a set of Oliver and Olivia Owl paper dolls and a set of rabbit paper dolls called the Hopper Family.

Kathy Lawrence lives in Texas and still designs lots of interesting and fun things for children. She is a famous illustrator for greeting cards and collector plates as well as soft, beautiful religious paintings.
