Author Acrostic ♥ The Story Circle with Wendy Martin

Happy Book birthday to my buddy and artistic co-conspirator (check out our Animal Totem Mandala Coloring Book--and a soon not to be secret project!) Wendy Martin who is providing a bit of poetry for today's adventure!

Terrible storms bring a
Horrendous flood, which covers
Everything in mud and slime and the

School’s picture books are destroyed.
The children return to empty bookshelves.
Only... the teacher has an idea.
Replace the missing books with new stories of
Your own making, she tells the sad

Imaginations run wild. Instead of
Reading from a book, they each
Create a tale of their own. They write and color.
Look at all the new stories on the bookshelf
Everyone has shared!

A transplanted New Yorker now living in Missouri, Wendy Martin earned a degree in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology, then went on to attend the School of Visual Arts, earning a B.F.A. in Graphic Design. Wendy creates art for children's picture books, chapter, young adult and educational books. She also illustrates images for adults with styles in the Art Nouveau and fantasy fiction genres.
