art by others

Efrem is one creative kid!

I got the most awesome of surprise packages in the mail yesterday.

An entire book written and illustrated by Efrem, a crazy talented 7 year old. 

I gave him this blank sketchbook in late November, when he and his family were at our house for a party. I knew that Efrem loved to draw and would enjoy one of my multitude of blank books I've got laying around. I never expected to get it back, filled with 70 some odd drawings!!!  These next two pages pretty much sums up the premise of the book.......

Here are a few of the pages from the guide that Efrem includes in the book. 

After the kids in the story read the guide, they set out to rescue their mom. 

Here are some of my favorite goblin action scenes! 

 I just can't get over the amount of detail and brave mark making he puts into these pages!

And finally.....

Mom is heroically rescued and brought home! 

Thank you much for letting me share your book Efrem!  And thank you to his parents, who do much to encourage his interest in the arts. I hear Efrem even got a drafting table for Christmas.  Lucky kid!

Well, that's it for this week. See you next Tuesday. Ta-Ta!
