Mike Knudson, the author of the Raymond and Graham series, and I teamed up for a couple of school visits to Kingsley Elementary School and River Woods Elementary School in Naperville, IL.
We had a blast!
The kids were absolutely terrific and it was uplifting to meet fans of the Raymond and Graham books face-to-face, entertain them and sign and draw in their books.
A special thanks to the fine folks at both these schools for allowing us to come visit your schools!
We appreciate your support!
Here are a few photos:
The awesome set up that the school folks made for us:

Mike's doing the talking and I'm drawing, which is projected up on that screen between the Raymond and Graham banners.
Technology sure has come a long way since overhead projectors and transparencies:
Looking at the drawings:
Two student volunteers help Mike make a point about the writing process:
