Kid Attack!

October 23, 2014

I wonder how many of us can remember when we first dared to dream about growing up to be a writer/illustrator? I know I didn’t get past the dreaming part for a very long time.

I’m so pleased to share the work of a talented young graphic novelist, Ewan, who’s getting on with the business of writing and illustrating already. He’s awesome. He’s hilarious (giant Tim-Tams, anyone?). He’s in Grade 3.

I’m gobsmacked. Thank you, Ewan.

      Cheers, Bert. I'm pretty sure nobody would have picked me for a writer in Grade 3. :)

    This has inspired my kids to stop playing Minecraft and write their own books. Fantastic work, Ewan!

    Ewan, you are a very talented author/illustrator and I'm sure we will be reading many of your stories one day. Ewan has also been writing ideas for a new series of 'Round the Twist'. He is one to watch for sure!!!!
