Comic-book style children's book

A dear friend is terminally ill and has only 2-3 months to live. He has been a Hollywood screenwriter and an author, and now he has written a children's book from a story he made up for his own children. He asked me to illustrate it, but I'm not doing a very good job and would love to surprise him with some great comic book style art that fit his dreams.

The style is sort of Calvin & Hobbs - not overly detailed, but big bright color, bold lines, cartoon comic-book style pages. 29 pages of illustration, 12x12" in InDesign.

Please submit an example of how you would portray a young boy with slinkys for legs in this format. Because finances are limited, this project will be chosen based primarily on cost with a consideration for skill.

This will be ONLY for one book to be given to the children of the terminally ill author. If this book is published, all profits will be split evenly between the author's family and the illustrator.
