Student Shout Outs
Gracie P. – Author and Illustrator
Gracie has been drawing since about the age of 4. Her first book was completed when she was only 6 years old with cats as heroic main characters. She continues to develop characters and write stories. She hopes to write and illustrate more children’s books, but her dream is to become an animator for a major computer animation studio.
Gracie says, “Try not to be too hard on yourself. It doesn’t have to be perfect the first time.” In fact, there were three versions of her book cover, because she welcomed advice from others to improve the final product.
