Mark Wayne Adams GIVEAWAY & Review
If you have been following my blog for a while now you will remember that I had a chance to review a Book series called the Best Fairy Book Series which was a wonderful story with fabulous illustrations,Shortly after the review I was contacted by Mark Wayne Adams who is the Illustrator of the Best Fairy Books,Who asked me to do a review & giveaway for two other books he has just finished up doing illustrations for,I was more than happy to accept & Now I get to share the books with all of you here.
For my review I received "King for a Day, the Story of Stories" which not only did he do the Illustrations for but he also wrote the book itself & "Nicholas, That's Ridiculous" Which is written by Christa Carpenter & Illustrated by Mark.Here is a little about "King for a Day" "When Carter and Russell forget their story for a jamboree, they have only one day to write a new one. Soon a pair of unexpected characters enter to ruin the day and a remarkable adventure ensues, leaving the pair with an unexpected reward. A heartwarming tale that begins at home, this wonderfully illustrated book teaches young readers about friendship, integrity, and self-discovery, encouraging them to create their own stories using the tools within themselves. Also woven within the tale is practical advice for how to write a story, detailing how to write a fictional piece, create a page layout, and design characters" & Here is a little on "Nicholas, That's Ridiculous" "Nicholas Wallaby was always doing ridiculous things! And his mom was always letting him know. Nicholas, That's Ridiculous! she'd say - at least thirty times a day. Finally, Nicholas's mom realizes that Nicholas, isn't being ridiculous - he's just being a boy! With this lighthearted story, children can relate to Nicholas and the ridiculous things he does. Parents can learn to appreciate and enjoy the humor behind these happenings. " I really enjoyed both books,The stories were entertaining & fun to read & the illustrations are colorful,bright,cheerful & fit the story perfectly I really do admire Marks work & the way he makes the story really come to life,I hope to eventually have the chance to check out some of the other books he has worked on weather he has written them or done the illustrations for them they are sure to be a master piece. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.
