Goat Tails and Doodlebugs - Everett Gee Jackson's attempt to catch your attention!

I don't know about any of you, but Goat Tails and Doodlebugs: A Journey Toward Art is a title that I won't soon forget.

My fellow avid readers,
Are you tired of reading long novels for school?  Maybe you've been going through a phase where you are delving into the latest classic to suit your fancy, and you're craving some kind of break - but you just can't stop reading!  Well, my dear friends, I am here to solve your problem.

Evert Gee Jackson's book is a delightful read.  It is said to be a "testimony to the notion that art imitates life" - through the stories and illustrations within this novel, one is submerged within the life of Jackson and his journey on the way to becoming a successful artist.  The print is big, the content fulfilling; the pictures take up an entire page, and will fill a void present within the depths of your mind.  Not only will this title remain with you forever, but the impact of Jackson's words and art will continue to influence you in every aspect of your life.

AND to top it all off, THIS BOOK IS FUNNY.  Jackson has quite the sense of humor laced throughout his personal story, and weaves his intelligence in between the laughs so that his readers can understand how some events in life occur for a reason.  Admire the words and the works of art; this book is one that will remove any cobwebs that have formed in your library (or on your bookshelf).  You simply will not be able to put it down!  And then of course, you'll share it amongst your friends and tell Jackson's story to the next listener at your company's Christmas party.  Honestly, reading this is a win-win situation for everybody.

Now that it is summer, enjoy the nice weather (or bring this on the vacation you're going to take to get away from the craziness of life) and flip through this book.  I guarantee that you'll love it - if not for the title itself, then for the phenomenal story told from cover to cover (through words and pictures).
