Dog vs. Cat:
“Dog and Cat do not get along. But when they’re forced to share a room, they agree to be on their best behavior…until Dog won’t stop sniffing. Cat won’t stop primping. Dog won’t stop howling. Cat won’t stop scratching. And when it comes to the litter-box…sharing is not an option!”
Chris will introduce his new book and share how he wrote and illustrated this book. He will also demonstrate his use of scratchboard for other illustrations and participants will make their own scratchboard illustrations.
Refreshments will be provided. UA Bookstores will sell copies of Chris’s work, including a special early release of Dogs vs. Cats just for WOW Book Fiesta.
