Adventures in Cartooning


Adventures in Cartooning

In these action-packed cartooning adventures, kids will have as much fun making comics as reading them!
Once upon a time . . . a princess tried to make a comic. And with the help of a magical cartooning elf, she learned how --- well enough to draw her way out of an encounter with a dangerous dragon, near-death by drowning and into her very own adventure! Like the princess, young readers will discover that they already have the drawing and writing skills it takes to make a comic --- they just need a little know-how.
