Officer Buckle and Gloria
By: Peggy Rathmann
Another image that brings life to the book is when Officer Buckle is viewing the broadcast on his presentation because the author brings the drawing outside of picture frame creating a more life-like feeling to the reader, helping them feel like they are in the story. Also the colors Peggy Rathmann uses in this illustration with Officer Buckle are the color choices. The couch that he is sitting on and his bathrobe are green and blue and these colors bring a calming cool sense and serenity, then when he sees his broadcast his reaction is completely different from what he was feeling before.
