Unit 4- Illustration

This unit is a unit in conjunction with our very creative young authors in gr 2. They wrote stories and gr 10 is illustrating them.


we paid a visit to gr 2 in order for them to read us their stories.

Edward Gorey- as his name suggests he has quite a gorey sense of humor. Very detailed pen and ink style. Gashlycrumb

Chris Van Allsberg- renown childrens books such as Jumanji, Polar express and The sweetest fig. He has a pretty realistic style.

Norman Rockwell

Quinten Blake- illustrated 

Maurice Sendak- most known for Where the wild things are a childrens’ book that has remained popular through many generations

Even though we are illustrating childrens books, it is important to remember that illustrators do a lot more than just that. Illustration covers artwork done for books, magazines, CD’s, posters and much more.

“Mammals with no hair”

Along time ago mammals had no hair. They were cold    because they didn’t have hair they decided to steal some hair from sea animals. Sea animals had hair at that time. The mammals sneaked up on the sea animals when the sea animals came to land food! Then the mammals set a trap for them. The set out coconuts which were sticky to trap the sea animals. The mammals took a sharp piece of wood and scraped all the hair off the sea animals. They got some sticky stuff. Pineapples! They got the juice from the pineapples and put it on their skin and then they put the stolen on themselves. Then they were warm and the sea creatures froze and the sea and turned to ice. And then the ice age came. New mammals came. They had hair.

It didn’t feel good to have no hair. They would turn to ice every winter. They put their hands on their heads because they were so cold. It was no good.

Why do people kill animals?

 Friends and I went to South Africa for discovering wildlife. The next day there was a bad guy and we quietly followed him. He was where the lions were. Then he took out a gun. When the lion open his mouth the bad guy shot in the lion’s mouth just for fun. Then the bad guy went to a cave and ate some fish. In the meanwhile ran to the city as fast as we could until we got to the police station. We told policeman what happened then we went back to   We back to the wildlife. We told were the bad guy was then the police sent   him to jail. The next day we went back home.

In gr2 Gabriela had a new puppy. I came back home from school and said,   “Where is my new puppy?”   My Mom said, “She is coming tomorrow.”    When I got my puppy there was trouble.    I didn’t know how to take care of a puppy!   I gave her the wrong food.   I chased the puppy.    I used her like a toy. My puppy was sad because I did the wrong things. I saw her face. I asked my mom how to take care of puppy. My mom said what to do. I asked my friend to help me to learn to take care of a puppy. I gave her the right food. I trained her to do tricks. I trained her to sit and I trained her to dance. I showed her a treat and then she started to do the right things. I gave her a walk so she could go to the bathroom. She needs the walk to exercise. I gave her a bath so she want stink. My funny feels good. She is excited. I feel happy because I know how to take care of puppy!
