That includes 117 miles from the Family Fitness afternoon last weekend.
I adjusted the Penguin on the map to represent this… We arrived in Boston, then turned around and are now headed back home to Camas!
Way to go PRUNE HILL!!!
Matthew Holm, co-author and illustrator of the Babymouse and Squish series of graphic novels will be visiting Prune Hill Elementary on May 22, 2013. He will talk about how where his story ideas come from (he writes them with his sister) and he will demonstrate his drawing and cartooning techniques. This author visit has been well-received by several area schools and we are looking forward to his visit. There will be an opportunity to buy signed copies of his book at a discount. The entire Babymouse series will be there along with some of the Squish books. They will sell for $6.25 (this includes tax). Please send cash or a check made out to Barnes & Noble if you are interested!
