Poetry Friday: Fib and Picture Books


For Poetry Friday, I wrote a little fib in honor of the SCBWI-IL Conference –Prairie Writer’s and Illustrator’s Day that I’m attending tomorrow and been preparing for. It’s a very wee ditty, for my wee time that I had. And here also is my picture book dummy that I was preparing to take with me, the story is called Trudy’s Ghost.

Hi Ho
it’s off to 
conference I go,
Ready steady ooOH, Hi Ho- – ooOH

    Hi Ho, best wishes today for a great time, and with “Trudy”. She looks quite alarmed in that picture, Michelle! It looks like a great Halloween story!
