(Disclosure:  we have a bit of technical difficulty.  Hang in there.  I promise meeting the Shaskans is worth it!)

For the show notes 

Host:  Addendum Books

Book: Punk Skunks

Author:  Trisha Speed Shaskan

If you buy the book, there are instructions on the book’s jacket to download the two songs the Shaskans wrote for Punk Skunks.

The Shaskan’s first collaborative project was called Art Panels Bam! Speech Bubbles Pow!  It was a toolbox book on how to write a graphic novel.

Raising Dragons by Jerdine Nolen

The story’s voice and art is beautiful.  This book has more text than 500 words which is more common in picture books written currently.  Gianna explains what a story’s voice is.

Rhyming Dust Bunnies by Jan Thomas.

This book engages kids and adults.  It’s a wonderful read aloud.

It’s a Tiger by David LaRochelle.  We will be discussing this book in April.

We discuss Rafa’s Punk Skunk Hair and doggie Halloween Costumes.

Look for more books by the Stephen and Trisha coming!
