HELP! Which is better – DOODLE / CARTOONS or CARTOONING? Please comment with your thoughts! Starting in September I am going to lead projects in an after school program for children 2nd through 5th grade. Should I do funny stories encouraging children to finish them off doodling or should I teach step by step cartooning?

Doodling is such a carefree happy activity that I can’t make up my mind. Should I give them a choice?

PIRATES COMING OUT OF A BOOK

This is an image from one of my older books, a rather too complicated story of a grandmother reading a pirate book to her granddaughter before succumbing to alzheimer's disease. It is a wordless book with images of them communicating through the book. With this story line you can see why the book didn't go anywhere. I still quite like the image, and one hopes the saying that nothing is ever wasted is true.

This is an image from one of my books. I must have done this version of the story a very long time ago. I couldn't for the life of me tell you what is being cooked. All I can say is the goose doesn't seem enchanted with the recipe for good reason!
