The Five-Year-Old Hits the Big Time and Other News of the Week
It’s been quite a week here at Caterpickles Central. The Five-Year-Old got to meet Mike Glowacki and Jill Barry (the artists behind the Peace Rabbit in Oakdale Square Common) on Sunday. We’ll tell you all about that next week, but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek.
In other news, three more rabbits were released into the wild this week, events which prompted two full mornings of photo shoots. You can find The Five-Year-Old’s work on Patch here. Her photos of Ear Ye, Ear Ye and the Bengal Bunny will follow July 31 and August 7.
And then there was the Dedham Transcript interview with The Five-Year-Old, which was published on Tuesday.
On a completely different note, this was also the week we said goodbye to Cozy the Cat.
The Five-Year-Old: “A huge pain is in my heart. Pain is in my soul. Pain is in my blood. It fills up all of me.”
Yep, that about covers it. We’ll miss you, little guy.

Did you know that I’ve got a book out about the 2012 Dedham Public Art Project?
In addition to providing tips for viewing public art with kids ages 3-10, What’s That, Mom? offers much more detail on the 15 giant fiberglass rabbits included in the 2012 Dedham Public Art Project, including a complete set of (higher quality) photographs, influences on their various designs, and several interviews with the local artists who painted the bunnies.

[…] In this middle-grade novel, Oona and her brother Fred struggle to cope with a series of painful transitions. After the death of their father two years before, their mother has started dating again, and their beloved cat, Zook, has become seriously ill. To help cope with the emotional changes, Oona tells her brother Fred a series of stories about Zook’s past lives. While The Eight-Year-Old firmly considers this book “the best book ever,” as her mom I could have used a heads-up that Zook dies in the end. I left a very happy child chortling over Zook’s antics and came back an hour later to find a tear-soaked Eight-Year-Old cradling the boxes that contain the ashes of our cats Mulberry and Cozy. […]
