Illustration Friday - Reverse

Illustration Friday - Reverse
This week's word on Illustration Friday is reverse. It made me remember one of my favorite books by Beverly Cleary called The Mouse and the Motorcycle. I think I read this book when I was in fourth grade or so. I loved the idea of having a very small pet that could stay in your pocket all day, and it was also very cool that he rode a motorcycle, too. In the story, Ralph's motorcycle makes the sound VROOM VROOM to go forward, but to go reverse it makes the sound MROOV MROOV.
