Reading from the "Happy the Pocket Mouse" series, which Andrea illustrated (written by Philip Roy) participants will learn different ways to visually tell a story. Young people will have a mini workshop on cartooning, illustrating a story, and creating unique, visual characters.*


*Please note: Andrea's presentations always contain messages of empowerment, and seek to go beyond entertainment to inspire youth to "reach for the stars." In this spirit, Andrea offers the option of "penpal" correspondence (with permission from parents and guardians) so that young people can share their stories and artwork with her.

About the Author

One of Andrea’s first memories was of holding a picture book close and thinking, “I want to make drawings like these!” Since then, she has added writing to her list of THINGS-I-LOVE-TO-DO.
