I just finished this graphic novel and I was so impressed! So many books for children don't really seem for children, but this one speaks to them in their language. So much to take away from this story and the word and pictures worked together like a perfect symphony!

I just got back from a school visit waaaaaay out west in Bracketville, Texas. What a great adventure! Bracketville is a little Texas town near the border of Mexico and near some incredible scenery. I have lived in Texas all my life, but I have never seen actual mountains here. Okay, they were not exactly the Rocky Mountains, but pretty awesome nonetheless. There are some brilliant, talented kids tucked away in this historic little town and I am so thankful I had the privilege of meeting them and the very hospitable staff at Jones Elementary. I was able to share with pretty much the whole elementary as well as one high school art class. One of the high school students there has just been accepted into Parsons in New York! My husband and I fell in love with this place!
They had this nifty jail box that came in very handy. What else do you do with your performance husband on a school presentation trip?
