Hey, you! Yes, you with the dazzling smile! The donkey wants your vote. So does the elephant. And each will do just about anything to win your support. Brag? Sure! Flatter? Absolutely! Exaggerate, name-call, make silly promises and generally act childish? Yes, yes, yes, and yes.
Head on over to Secret Garden, on Thursday April 5, to celebrate with debut author and fellow SCBWI member Ben Clanton!! Ben' book, VOTE FOR ME, is his first picture book! Ben is also the illustrator of the JASPER JOHN DOOLEY series by Caroline Adderson.
Ben Clanton is a story scribbler, picture squiggler, book aficionado, child advocate, dragon tamer (he wishes!) and avid sock wearer (especially of the striped variety). He came to this planet in 1988 and has spent most of his time here reading, drawing, sleeping, gardening and eating chocolate. For more information on Ben, and his work, you can visit his website.
