“Animal Treks,” by Campbell Hutchinson ©2011, a children’s book of 15 paintings and limericks.

Children are drawn to animals. Just watch a kid’s reaction when she first sees a puppy. In my books my mythical self takes trips around the world visiting yaks in Asia, cows in Switzerland, gorillas, elephants, lions and camels in Africa, buffalos in the American West, and cows, horses and llamas on farms throughout the United States.


About the Author

Campbell Hutchinson
chutchinson3 New Orleans, LA

Lawyer turned artist, I am a figurative painter of man and animal. In 2008 I wrote, illustrated and published my first book, “wild things,” a book of some of my animal paintings and limericks I wrote about each painting. The book was primarily intended for my grandchildren, but it gained some popularity locally primarily among art patrons. I subsequently published “Strange Bedfellows, and other critters” in 2009 and “Great Woolly Beasts” in 2010, using the same format.

Although some of my limericks and paintings are intended to be witty, I intend the books to be educational tools about animals, their traits, their environments, and their similarities to man, and in some instances their virtues that are superior to man's.

These books were written for my grandchildren and for kids of all ages who are bored with the customary children's book and want something with a little humor and spice. Hopefully, parents will enjoy the humor as they read to their kids.
