So much fun creating this design for our Waldorf Charter School’s Jog-a-thon!
When a Dragon Moves In, written by Jodi Moore, illustrated by Howard McWilliam
Jodi Moore accepted the Library of Virginia’s Annual Whitney and Scott Cardozo Award for Children’s Literature for When a Dragon Moves In last weekend! Here is her account of the event:
WOW! The evening – the weekend – was extraordinary… just amazing! I am still pinching myself…what a star-studded, lovely weekend I had!
Virginia is a beautiful state, filled with warm, wonderful people.
The day started out with a scrumptious luncheon at the Convention Center, where all nominees were honored with medals.
We were treated to a Q&A session with the incomparable Tom Robbins, who was honored with a Literary Lifetime Achievement Award. What a fascinating man!
Following the luncheon, people were encouraged to buy the honored authors’ books and we were positioned at tables for signing. I’m thrilled to report that lots of people “adopted” Dragons! I was also interviewed on Sirius radio!

I've been working away on my plans for the new website that I am building and I wanted to share a bit of it with you. Above you can see a sketch for my new town which will be featured on the website. I hope it will be a place mostly for kids with fun things to download and how to draw movies. I'll also be able to share more about me and my books.
I'll post some more sketches for the site below in hopes you'll get a little excited about it.

These are some friendly dragons from a picture book I illustrated way back in 1994. Where has the time gone!Not a great scan as I had to scan from the printed book.

From "Do Not Drop" by Margaret Teall, Ladybug
I haven't posted for ages either, so I'm really happy that I have work that fits this month's prompts! Like lots of people, I did The Princess and the Pea for Illo Friday "Layers" (I can't believe how many of us had that same idea - it's such a great story). Mine is just a quickie and I really admire the beautiful ones the rest of you did.
The dragon is a picture I've just done for my children's illustration diploma with the London Art College. The assignment was to create a vignette of a young dragon who has accidentally set someone's thatched cottage on fire and is horrified. You can see that my paper has buckled a bit. I used a cheap paper because I wanted a really white, smooth surface and my watercolour paper is textured and off-white. Does anyone know of a heavier paper that's smooth and white?
Any ideas on how to improve it would be welcome too.

“Harry Potter the Exhibition” opened today at New York City’s Discovery Times Square. The video embedded above offers a sneak peek at the show that displays eight movies’ worth of props, costumes, and settings.
Featured costumes include Hermione Granger‘s yule ball gown, Cedric Diggory‘s quidditch uniform, and Professor Albus Dumbledore‘s wizard robes. We spotted three horcruxes, including Salazar Slytherin‘s locket, Helga Hufflepuff‘s cup, and Tom Riddle‘s diary (basilisk fang included). Dobby the house elf, Fawkes the phoenix, and the Hungarian Horn Tail dragon also appear.
The exhibition includes interactive segments as well. A few lucky volunteers can draw a Hogwarts house assignment from a sorting hat. Everyone can pull out Professor Sprout‘s shrieking mandrake plants and sit in the half-giant’s leather chair inside Hagrid‘s Hut.

Jodi Moore signing copies of When a Dragon Moves In at BookFest PA
I’m one of these people who just can’t wait to bite into the chocolaty center of a Tootsie Pop, the creamy middle of a sugary doughnut, the gooey core of a caramel bar. So imagine my reaction when I was offered the chance to participate in BookFest PA, a book festival tucked into the heart of The Central PA Festival of the Arts. Sweet!
And what do you get when you combine arts enthusiasts with avid readers? Some quite extraordinary people who, while varying in age, background, and interest, have come together to celebrate the power of the imagination.
Nothing short of a little slice of heaven.
Between 10 am and 5 pm on July 16, thousands of folks browsed the BookFest PA tent to share words and stories, and to meet some very talented writers and illustrators. (Yes, I was admittedly fan-gushy to be in such lovely company.) I’m thrilled to say that Dragon “moved into” many a new, loving home that day! There is nothing more heart-squishy than watching a child hug your book.
In addition, I was honored to present When a Dragon Moves In during a late morning story time inside Schlow Library. Our young audience became artists themselves, drawing pictures of their own “perfect sandcastles” – which I‘m sure are now proudly displayed on refrigerators across the nation! Each child received the highly regarded “Dragon” sticker for his/her work, as well as a bookmark. And of course, the Dragon himself made an appearance!
A standing ovation – and a ton of thanks – to the organizers and volunteers of this amazing event. This was only the second year for BookFest PA, but with the success and smiles it brought to so many, I know I’m not the only one looking forward to many more!
