I did this over a decade ago, but I couldn't throw it out... I believe I was reading several fantasy novels including the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, but also some Forgotten Realms, and possibly some Piers Anthony...  Plus my gramma said that one time when I slept over I was singing and laughing in my sleep.

The expression of this child touched me: she seemed to be showing me an emotion I was familiar with (I drew it from an ad for The Children's Wish Foundation). This picture is a somewhat autobiographical. Some children need their imaginations to save them from the dark, and not necessarily the dark that surrounds them at night.
Anyway, I did have some worn out spots on this old treasure, some still visible, so I sort of fixed up the worst of them on my paint program.  I do apologize about the pillow section as it caused me a bit of grief...  I'm just leaving it, so I don't mess it up worse...
