Ben Franklin's In This Book

Ben Franklin's In This Book

In September the next book I worked on will be released. It's called, Ben Franklin's is In My Bathroom. It's written by Candace Fleming and illustrated by me. And if the title of this book doesn't have you wanting to open it and find out exactly why Ben Franklin is in said bathroom - then you will never open any book!

It's a biography with a lot of historically accurate info but it's also an adventure story about time travel. 

"What?" you say. "How can it be both a dessert topping AND a vitamin supplement?" You ask.

Well, the book is really cleaver about how it does this and it's the reasons I was attracted to the project. The story of Nolan and Olive, who end up with Ben Franklin in their bathroom, is told in prose and spot art, like the page below.

But when Ben tells them about his past, his inventions, his history, the history of the United States, it's told in a graphic novel format like this page:

It's a really fun read, and using the graphic novel style let me indulge in more visual story telling which makes historical material come alive. Look for it in September, but you can preorder it now at Amazon - Banes & Noble or find it local at Indiebound.org
