Baby Jam By Todd Tibbetts
Hardcover: $24.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
This baby wants to play music. Anything he gets his hands on turns into an instrument. My kids have always loved playing music on any surface they could find. It sure is fun to play drums on your... More > little brother’s head, for example. Also, blowing into a cardboard tube sounds exactly like a trombone. Baby Jam is a salute to this idea, that the only ingredient required to make music is creative inspiration. There is a lot of tiny detail in these layered images. When I created it back in 2002, my computer was totally choking on the Photoshop files. When I made an edit, it would take 20 minutes to redraw the screen. Luckily today I have a much more powerful computer and those 2002 files seem tiny by 2009 standards. This book was crafted in Seattle, WA. The pictures were created with a computer and a variety of traditional materials. http://www.ClayBot.com< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
She just wants a monkey for a pet and not a lizard or dog or horse. What's a dad to do? I must admit that I’ve always kind of wanted to have a monkey for a pet. Today I realize what a...

Stella is a polite little girl who very patiently expresses her desire for simian camaraderie. Her dad offers to get her any other kind of pet. But she firmly states that it is a monkey or nothing. Buy the book to find out what pet Stella gets. This book was crafted in Seattle, WA. The pictures were created with a computer and a variety of traditional materials. http://www.ClayBot.com< Less
Floppy the Mophead By Todd Tibbetts
Paperback: $14.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
(Softcover) Floppy the Mophead was a little rag doll that came to life. He made himself a friend out of clay and set out to build a spaceship. But he didn’t expect to see the bad little boy... More > with green hair. Floppy the Mophead was the first children's book I ever wrote. I had just bought a Mac IIsi in 1991 and I wanted to experiment with scanners and Photoshop. As I look at it today, it definitely feels retro and low-fidelity. But the story is fun and the "old timey" computer graphics actually seem refreshing when compared to today's slick, polished 3D animations. Many of us have had dreams (or nightmares) about our dolls coming to life. This theme has been the basis of many books and movies for kids. My take on it is a little weird and dreamlike. I tried to re-create some of my childhood daydreams and I think I captured a little of that odd magic. http://www.ClayBot.com< Less
ABC Friends (softcover) By Todd Tibbetts
Paperback: $13.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Meet some strange friends from across the alphabet. ABC Friends is a strange alphabet book populated by oddball characters that you don’t meet in your everyday life. You’ll encounter... More > Iggy Iguana and Herbert Hippo. You’ll dine with Orly the Octopus and Lemmie Lizard. I created this book using various characters from my sketches and journals who hadn’t found a place in another book yet. I drew all the images in pencil and then traced over them on the computer, adding color and shading. This book was crafted in Seattle, WA. The pictures were created with a computer and a variety of traditional materials. http://www.ClayBot.com< Less

Mopeyhead and Crankypuss (softcover) By Todd Tibbetts
Paperback: $11.80
Prints in 3-5 business days
Mopeyhead and Crankypuss are really, really mad...until they forget about being mad. (softcover version) After hearing endless whining about being bored or sad, I decided to create two sad sack... More > characters who do nothing by complain. They each claim to be the most sad...until something silly happens and they break down laughing. Hopefully your kids will think this book is fun and silly...but they’ll never admit that they sometimes resemble these goofy sacks of clay. This book is illustrated totally with photographs created in my studio. I found objects, rocks, plants and other odd items to populate the strange clay world of Mopeyhead and Crankypuss. This book was crafted in Seattle, WA. The pictures were created with a computer and a variety of traditional materials. http://www.ClayBot.com< Less
Estelle the Absentminded Telepathic (softcover) By Todd Tibbetts
Paperback: $11.80
Prints in 3-5 business days
Estelle can't quite get the hang of her supernatural powers. Then she wins the lottery. This book isn't exactly a kid's book, although it is totally appropriate for all audiences. It's just that some... More > of the words are big. Estelle was originally inspired by early 20th century children’s books that may be considered inappropriate by today’s standards due to questionable content and advanced vocabulary. This book is certainly appropriate for all ages, but might not be understood by everyone because of the big words. I wanted to write a story about a telepathic who was clumsy and awkward. It seems like all the telepathics I know are well-adjusted, confident folks. Estelle is a bit of a mess. And then she wins the lottery. My daughter thinks this book is sad because it doesn’t have a happy ending. It’s not a sad ending, really, just a bit melancholy. You decide. http://www.ClayBot.com< Less
Sleeping Humptylocks and the Three Beanstalks (softcover) By Todd Tibbetts
Paperback: $13.80
Prints in 3-5 business days
(softcover version) Sleeping Humptylocks just wants to go to bed. Why won't everyone just quiet down! This book allows readers to choose their own storyline and ending. Note: contains mild cartoon... More > violence. Inspired by so many fractured fairytales from my youth, this book is a mash-up of some classic stories. See if you can identify all the stories that I referenced. This was created originally for online distribution back in the early 90s when I was working at a web design agency. This is the first story I ever sold (to an online kid’s site). This book allows you to choose your own ending. Each page presents you with a list of choices. How will you steer the story? Will it be a happy ending or sad? (Hint: sad endings are sometimes more fun!) This book was crafted in Seattle, WA. The pictures were created with a computer and a variety of traditional materials.< Less
