Every student received a signed copy of his new graphic novel, New Kid, courtesy of the Porter Square Books Foundation. Students said they learned "that it takes a lot of practice to be a good writer," and that they "drew all night!" after being inspired by Craft's lesson in drawing cartoons. Many students liked the book so much they finished it by the end of recess. It's a fun read -- borrow your child's copy so you can discuss it!
