What does this have to do with children's books? Well, David hopes to do some children's book film adaptations in his future career. As a child, he was intrigued by John Clark Matthews' excellent FROG AND TOAD and THE MOUSE AND THE MOTORCYCLE stop-motion films. After watching the "Behind the Scenes" segment extras, David decided to try his hand at stop-motion. Using our little old video camera, he created many humorous movies for us with his Star Wars figures, Legos, and clay.
