Last winter, chickaDEE magazine asked me to write and illustrate a story for their Eco issue. "We want fiction with a green theme," the editor said. "Make it fun but not preachy."
I brainstormed ideas with grade five, six and seven students from Edmonton's Story Avenue writing workshop. Kids developed characters to use in their own story plots - zombies, robots, ninjas and more. Their good ideas made me think of the perfect protagonists for my story - worms! Check out the September issue of chickaDEE magazine to see what I wrote and drew.
Thanks, Story Avenue kids! See your story credit in print in chickaDEE's September 2012 issue.
