1. Coloring Page: The Runaway Tortilla!

A fine week of sharing The Runaway Tortilla, The Presidential Polar Bear Post Card Project, and many other bookish things at both SCBWI's Inside Story and with kids at Maple Hills Elementary School! Much thanks to all and I will have more to post from the school visit in another day or two :)

3. Summer Reading -- On the banks of the Columbia!

Summer reading programs with the regional library took me to the banks of the Columbia River this past week -- with visits to Brewster and Bridgeport, WA. I've got several more library HEROES still waiting in the wings for their online debuts, but here is one from Brewster (both in sketch and final form) and then another from a week or two earlier in Entiat. My final visits of the summer take place next week in Wenatchee, Cashmere, Moses Lake and Mattawa, WA -- and then the family and I hit the road for a little non-work vacation time!!! Awesome tree sculptures that line the main drag in Brewster are always a pleasure to see. New entries added to the experience this year and maybe even a work or two still in progress.

And FINALLY, some quick photographic evidence of the "cartoon challenge" that has taken place throughout the summer. The number 9 -- in this case -- deftly turned into a giraffe. Keep up the great work kids!

5. Summer reading rolls!

With design input from the audience, here are three more heroes for the North Central Regional Library Summer Reading Program. Six visits next week - which means six more heroes to come! And I'll get some of the kid's cartooning posted here soon well :)

6. NCRL Summer Reading!

The start of summer = the start of Summer Reading, and this week I kicked things off in style with visits to the Twisp, Tonasket, and Oroville branches of the North Central Regional Library system. "Every Story has a Hero" and "Unmasked!" are the season's themes, so I'll be sharing new story news, pondering the similarities between creating comics and picture books, and leading cartooning workshops this June and July. The library kids and I will also create a NCRL Hero mascot for each of the 16 branches that I visit - "YES!" 

To wit, Twisp's most excellent new Hero team: BUZZ & BUZZY!

(Stay tuned for others within a day or two of each visit - and colored versions too!)

9. Horsharkosaurous Maximous

Another nice round of visits this afternoon. In this instance, to my local local libraries: Winthrop and Twisp. Here are a few of the promised coloring pages as inspired by our group drawings in round no. 1 of the summer reading tour. Just click on the images to enlarge and then print away. More to follow!

Can you identify the three creatures combined together in this lovely beast? The name is a major clue :)

10. On location: Leavenworth, WA

After an excellent early summer break, I returned to work and to Book Camp. Amy and all of the good folks at A Book For All Seasons invited me down for a Sunday book signing and a Monday morning of fun with their 7-8 year old campers.

A great day, with fantastic kids, in a sweet spot on the back porch! Since Edgar Allen Poe and Mystery were the theme of the writing camp, we spent a little time with my own mystery book, Octavius Bloom and the House of Doom -- complete with some Octavius disguises of our own.

Since Leavenworth, WA is also a great polka town, I also finally got around to creating this coloring book page for Polar Polka. Enjoy!

Click the image to enlarge. Print as many as you'd like!

11. Sno-Isle Kids

Recently, I helped the Sno-Isle Library System (north of Seattle) to redesign their Kids page. For the most part, this meant creating a mascot of sorts, and then lots and lots of otter drawings :) Check it out and let me know what you think. I'll be making a few coloring pages for their summer reading enjoyment as well.
