For inspiration we showed them some of the transportation devices from famous movies and books, including Kendra Kandlestar. Readers of that series might remember Kendra and co.’s walnut boat, or Effryn Hagglehorn’s snail (his name was Skeezle), which acted as a cart for his travelling magic shop. And then, of course, there is the airship that they use for much of the series, affectionately known as The Big Bang.
I was surprised that we didn’t see any paper airplanes or toy cars (though we did get one “bottle vehicle”). It seems most preferred “critter cars!” Here’s some of the drawing and brainstorming that helped informed the kids’ drawings.
