The Magic Backpack

These are from my children's book illustration class. I have a whole bunch of drawn pages for it, but I only finished the cover and two interior spreads.

The story is about a boy (Lucas) who finds a magic backpack and has a lot of fun with the backpack's transformational powers. Then he foolishly tries to make clones of himself by putting his skin flakes and hair into the backpack overnight. He wakes up to find deformed creatures, and his siblings have to help him trap all the creatures into the backpack again to re-transform them to their original inanimate selves.
