Comments for Kirby Went to the Beach

Kirby Went to the BeachKirby Went to the Beach: 03/01/08

Permit me a moment of motherly pride. Over the last week Sean has been working on his first book called The Kirby Went to the Beach. He typed the words (I helped with spelling) and did the illustrations himself.

It's the story of a "happy little Kirby" (from the video games) who goes to the beach, has a picnic and plays ball with some friends.

The story is board book length (ten pages) and colorfully illustrated in classic Sean style artwork. We have scanned his book and made a PDF version and we're giving a copy to his school.

You can download a copy to read for yourself. Enjoy!

Don't you love how creative they can be? Tell Sean congratulations.

Corbin's first book was 'The Very Hungry Shark' and Xander's was something about Star Wars. Although Corbin's actually had words. Xander is still working on that part. "
