There isn’t a kid entry section (I am ten), but I wanted to do it anyway because I like to draw and I am trying to get better at it. πŸ™‚ I picked Mr. Allegra’s story because it was funny and I thought of making a wanted poster.
This is my entry. I used pencil to make a sketch and then markers to color it. I wanted to make the cover scary to make like Goldilocks was a criminal. I know it said I didn’t have to put the title in, but I like it there.

  2. This is so great! I love the expression on Goldilock’s face! The sky and the lightening definitely set the ominous tone you were after! Good job!
