I had a great time at the Learning Lamp Children’s Book Festival in Johnstown, PA! Thanks everyone who came by to say hi, share artwork and collaborate in the drawing games! It was especially cool, getting to hang out with authors, Greg Pizzoli, Zachariah OHora, & Mark Weakland! I left feeling super inspired to get to work on some new books!

Where has this book been all my life? Everything an unapologetic Ewok fan could want! Great art, great story and tons of continuity nods to Return of the Jedi, the Ewok movies, & what was worth salvaging from the cartoons!

“Months passed away without dreams about the Agni Ki…or my father. My new life began to find new rhythm. But then…as suddenly as it always does…everything changed.”
Dave Roman, The Last Airbender: Prequel - Zuko's Story

“If an optimist had his left arm chewed off by an alligator, he might say in a pleasant and hopeful voice, "Well this isn't too bad, I don't have a left arm anymore but at least nobody will ever ask me if I'm left-handed or right-handed," but most of us would say something more along the lines of, "Aaaaaa! My arm! My arm!”
