The girls and a few of their friends ran a Writers and Illustrators club over the summer. Each girl came to the meetings with a new chapter to share. Then they "edited" and illustrated each other's work. (Edited might be a stretch - the mom who hosted the group said the girls didn't quite know how to give constructive criticism, opting instead for: "your story is awesome, I wouldn't change a thing!")
To celebrate their hard work, we had a book release party today at a local ice cream shop. The soft cover, color copy book was made through Blurb Books and came complete with author pictures, bios, and fun photos.
