Coming April 2017: Henry and the Chalk Dragon

“It is a dangerous thing to open a door. But that, after all, is the only way to find an adventure.”

In the town of Squashbuckle, just about anything can happen, and when Henry Penwhistle draws a mighty Chalk Dragon on his door, the dragon does what Henry least expects—it runs away.

Now Henry’s art is out in the world for everyone to see, and it’s causing trouble for him and his schoolmates Oscar and Jade. If they don’t stop it, the entire town could be doomed!

To vanquish the threat of a rampaging Chalk Dragon, Sir Henry Penwhistle, Knight of La Muncha Elementary School, is going to have to do more than just catch his art—he’s going to have to let his imagination run wild. And that takes bravery.

You can pre-order signed copies of Henry and the Chalk Dragon in the Rabbit Room Store. Ships April 4!

    A good writer loves WORDS--the way they look, the way they sound, and the way they come together to make meaning. The author Joseph Conrad said, "Give me the right word, and I will move the world!” Words are powerful, and they’re also just plain fun. In this exploration of poetry, descriptive writing, and wordplay, students will learn how words can whistle, whoosh, gallop, and bloom, painting pictures in our imaginations and making music in our ears.

    "Instructions for living a life: Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it." Those are the words of a famous American poet named Mary Oliver, and this class is about learning how to be a spy. Being a good writer doesn't start with your words. Being a good writer starts with your eyes and ears and nose and fingers. So in this class we learn how to be spies in the universe, paying close attention to the world around us, finding astonishment in ordinary things, and using some basic writing tools to "paint" pictures with words. This is a fun, interactive, hands-on introduction to a writer's way of looking at the world.
