Since the Angel Snakes are muses, they must be amusing.
I sent Angel Snakes to my two nephews. The seven year old (who already calls himself an artist) asked his mother what I might have used to color the figures. I have given him a colored pencil set and a water color set, not markers. His Angel was colored with markers. He will get a new set of markers.
The eleven year old, a great organizer, historian, collector, wondered where Aunt Gay was going with this. He did not see the purpose of it. He asked if these Angel Snakes were the originals. We will have a discussion when I see him later this summer. His mother did report that later that afternoon he went into his room and wrote a story on his new laptop.
