It's that time of year when grasshoppers, ants, katydids and crickets dance their dance or sing their song. Come one, come all to the ugly bug ball. If you are as old as I am, then you may remember Burl Ives' little ditty for the Disney flick, "Summer Magic". That movie inspired me as a child as I watched moth and firefly celebrate the night. So let's grab our tools and head outdoors and capture that last bit of Summer Magic before the September 1 deadline gets here.
Oh, and Scribblers, while you grab your gear and sharpen your pencils, don't forget to sign up for the SCBWI-Mi Illustrator Boot Camp-of-a-lifetime on Mackinac Island with Matt Faulkner. I'll see you there--with pen in hand!
