Hi, all. I thought I'd show you the book that my son created for a compulsory bookwriting/illustrating contest in which he participated. While the contest is optional for most students, it was mandatory for his honor class. Naturally, just one more project he had to do in the month of February bringing the total to ten projects for that month. Logan decided to use a golden retriever mix named Kasie as his main character. Kasie was probably the most lovable golden retriever mix ever. We were burlarized once and I just know that Kasie licked them and brought his ball for them to play with him. You can see a pic of my beloved dog in the book.
I helped with the construction of the actual book but Logan wrote the story and did the drawings all by himself. The rules of the contest stated that the book had to have a title page, copyright page, dedication, blurb, about the author, etc., in addition to a clear message within the story. The rules also did not allow for any kind of plastic or metal binding or we would have used metal rings. His book has been submitted as a finalist. Keep your fingers crossed, folks. The winner of the contest gets $500.
