Jennifer L. Meyer my collaborator on this series really brought the cute this issue. Check out that chipmunk (and his puffy cheeks) in the preview at comiXology. Mind you, her snake is appropriately not cute but equally brilliantly illustrated. This is probably my favorite chapter so far.
I talk about Aesop's Ark with The Comic Book Roadshow if you're interested in finding out more about the series (or listening to three grown men gush about Jennifer's kid-friendly art).
