During a typical field trip to 826, students are informed that there is an angry editor that works in the office upstairs and needs a original new stories right away. The students then work together to create characters, plot, and the setting for this story. I get to illustrate their bizarre creations, and at the end of the trip, each student leaves with a copy of their very own story. It’s great to help these kids realize a vision and turn it into a real physical thing.
