Here is my book in it's entirety! This was done by me in the 9th grade. The title is "Pewe's Wonderful Adventure" I laugh every time I read this story. Many of the characters were drawn from comic book characters. Some of my reference drawings were less reference and more literal. I believe the first picture was taken directly out of a book with a few additions (which is not something I would do today).

This story was typed and then cut and pasted to the book. It had a cardstock cover with the cover illustration affixed to it. The cover was bound by buttons and wire (my mom's idea) and the pages were put into plastic inserts. 

There were so many mistakes in this book so I welcome you to find them all. I had a kitten that looked like the kitten in the book, so I used her for reference. She was a tortoiseshell cat, so she could not be male. On to the book!

  1. That is awesome! I actually like the drawings because they are way better than I could have done at that age (and probably even now)! :)

  2. What a fun story. I love how the woman and the man near the end look like superheroes. I can see the comic influence there.
