LOUISE LOVES ART is a particularly annoying book for me – I so VERY much wish I had written it. I too believe, like Louise, in the importance of creativity in all its forms. The characters in my books are endlessly making art. I do however have to agree, not as effectively as Louise!

Kelly Light’s drawings of Louise and fellow characters are as endearing and expressive as Olivia and Eloise. No wonder the book was a terrific success. THERE IS EVEN A DOLL!

Kelly Light has just come out with an enchanting new book, LOUISE AND ANDIE: THE ART OF FRIENDSHIP. In this book Louise meets her neighbor who also loves art more than anything. You can imagine the fun they have!

SNAPPSY THE ALLIGATOR (DID NOT ASK TO BE IN THIS BOOK) by JULIE FALATKO and TIM MILLER

SNAPPSY THE ALLIGATOR (DID NOT ASK TO BE IN THIS BOOK) is a book perfect for fans of Mo Willems which should make its author Julie Falatko and illustrator Tim Miller very happy. It is bound to be a great success as it immediately got rave reviews.

The book is original and hilarious with its own narrator. It is written in an appealing way that will allow children to be in on the jokes and participate in the fun. Julie Falatko’s nimble writing and Tim Miller’s bold goofy cartoons are a perfect combo.

MY FIRST EVENT FOR TelHi

These photos are from my first TelHi event with my Color and Write Stories. I was delighted that so many of the children opted to participate and then asked me to come back and do some more. The children went from K to 5th, so we needed projects of different ability. The older children got stories with speech bubbles. This boy is working on my FRITZY BANG BANG CREATES A STAR story.
