Match



Martin's idea of what his first day of school should be like, and what it actually turned out to be, did not match.

(This is my SCBWI illustration contest entry) :0)

(August 23rd update) I won first place!!!!!

This little piggy went wee, wee, wee, wee all the way home...to get his swimsuit.

Good luck in the contest!

You always make me laugh! This is so cute (I love piggies), and perfectly timely! I am laughing, because when I get up in front of an unruly class (I teach high school), I often feel like that parrot!
