It's time for another episode of Yell Out Website Name Ideas (drawing and writing edition)

I've enjoyed the suggestions for website names in the past, and I am having a mental block on what to name a new project I'm working on.
The premise of the website is a collection of sparsely illustrated short verses/poems, primarily intended for kids but hopefully appealing to the adults reading to them. A friend will create an illustration and send it to me. I'll quickly write a bit of text/verse, then post it to a website. The subject matter and style will range greatly. The idea is for both of us to have some fun, and practice our skills. If we also build a regular audience of people who enjoy the results, that's nice too.
If you are familiar with "Where the Sidewalk Ends" by Shel Silverstein, you probably get the idea of the format we're going for. We'd probably post two or three times a week.
Usually I am overflowing with name ideas for sites, and one or two of them are sometimes pretty good. But I have nothing for this one. Partly because I am not sure what terms describe the project well. It's not quite a webcomic, not quite stories; more like poems or verses, but to me those don't evoke the idea that there are illustrations.
Any thoughts? Something somewhat descriptive or just make up a fun word? Having the .com available is always nice but not a dealbreaker for me in this case.
