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!”
Look out for…
