    Default The "Eyes" have it! (I - EYE - AYE)

    Is it my imagination, or is there a fixation with eyes in this book. Everywhere you look there are eyes (either on characters or as glyphs), every chapter begins with "I", etc. This harkens a bit to the Masquerade scheme.

    Hi Steve,

    lol! You crack me up and you are so right! Trees, stones! Kinda creepy. The forehead of the stones with eyes on p.32 even looks like the mushroom looking plant on p. 26...

    Perhaps the author and illustrator are just wanting us to look... I am seeing Masquerade techniques being used here. Pointing objects get my attention. Good observation.

    Hey, have you been troving DAR and seeing the tiny little weird things in the illustrations like me? His artwork was amazing. I'm pleased this looks simpler like Masquerade. I will be looking for pointing things till my eyes fall out.

    Happy troving,
    Beth

    Hi Beth,

    I couldn't wait for DAR after having worked on ATT. I was ...that close to solving one of the jewels. had the location and was planning the trip out when it was posted that it had just been found. DAR was infinitely much tougher, though I do appreciate Stadthers art. It is too bad he went belly up, so as a result I stopped working that hunt. For the past few years have been looking at Maranatha, till it has driven me to a point of putting it down for a while. I noticed this one looked interesting, so I am now working this as a diversion (also picked up Vegas Die, but haven't started that one yet.)

    Good luck!

    Steve

    Default Eyes in the Fire

    Why does the rhyme stress All Eyes in the Fire. Looking at the page, there are other animals (rabbit, fox, deer) that have eyes but aren't directly in the fire. There are three faces that look like lions that are in the fire. Are we supposed to do the masquerade thing and connect a line between the eyes and nose to point to a letter?

    I will have to document all of the eyes in the book, but in addition to eyes (one eye/two eyes on faces), there are eye symbols on the page 11 Keepsake page. Every chapter in the story is about "I"...
