We enjoyed Donald & Benoit

by John Patrick Byrne

( He goes by John Patrick Byrne when he writes)

He wrote this book for Honor & Xavier-

two of his children-who are twins.




We loved the part set in the Jazz Cafe- particularly the illustrations of the Dancing Devil Dogs.

We made Dancing Devil Dogs of our own.

We drew, coloured and cut them.

We gave them names!

I agree with John Byrne when he says…

“The KEY to your imagination is in your own hands-                                  it’s called a PENCIL!”

   Keep drawing!

   Look out for…

National Drawing Competition JOHN BYRNE

& The John Byrne Award
