I've always wanted to travel

As a self-employed freeloader freelancer, I have to keep on the lookout for my next job opportunity. Even if I'm up to my ears in work, I look for new work every day. 
So, the other morning I was perusing craigslist and caught this ad under "creative gigs":

Yeah!!! Hope it turns into something cool.

Are you familiar with the work of the children's book author/illustrator Holling C. Holling. This sounds like totally a book like one of his!

Sorry, I tried to post a link, but just google him at Amazon.
