The Enormous Egg by markcrilley The Enormous Egg by markcrilley
Here's an illustration from "The Enormous Egg," a classic chapter book from the 1950's I was hired to re-illustrate for Little, Brown & Co. I had a lot of fun doing this book, and took the job very seriously, since I knew the original had been admired by several generations of readers.

Omg I had no idea you was the one who illustrated this story! 
Since I was in 5th grade, we did a big project, and my class did a dinosaur paper mache out of this.
I really love this story great job!

That artist description confused me for a sec.
I thought you drew this picture in the 1950's.
"Wait a...there's no way...I think I misread something!"
Yup. I did. I got it sorted out, now, though.
