What We’re Reading – Donut Feed the Squirrels by Mika Song

Graphic novel for young readers (4-8) – Donut Feed the Squirrels by Mika Song

A romp for the family, from littlest on up.  Clever squirrels Norma and Belly want pancakes… but in their excitement they got burned!  But there’s still a good smell in the air… I laughed on most pages as Norma and Belly scheme to get donuts from the new food truck in the park.  There are physical gags, machines going wrong, delicious snacks, and more. It follows a heist format with a getaway car, a wise advisor, and lots of challenges.  The squirrels jump on each new problem  with good humor and short-lasting dismay, and we’re left smiling. 

Hello!

Hi Friends! I want to let you know that I’m starting a blog and a newsletter (probably quarterly, so only 4 teeny emails a year) to keep you updated on what I’m working on. Since there was nothing here… I figured I’d better put something up. 

For my newsletter pals, I’m going to offer a downloadable printable, usually an activity, each season – for the first one I’m working on a paper airplane printable that looks like a dinosaur-chicken, in honor of a draft project I am working on (a middle-grade graphic novel called Steffie Sordus and the Dino Chickens).   I’ll also probably blog about what I’m reading (usually SFF) and what I’m reading with my kiddo (he’s almost 7).   And my projects, methods, works-in-progress.  

Again, probably not that often, because I have to actually make some books if I’m ever to get published!  

Here’s Steffie! What do you think, would you pick up a story about Dinosaur Chickens?
