I was tinkled pink when Ladybug Magazine accepted, Not Now, Natalie! over a year ago. And now they have placed it in their Nov./Dec. holiday issue. The illustrations by John Joven are brilliant, with just the right amount of quirkiness. You can check out his work here: http://www.johnjoven.com
You can pick up an issue for your kids (or yourself) here on Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/p8xryza (only $2.22) The entire holiday issue is filled with fun stories, and even a fun winter clothes activity in the back!
Natalie needs help completing her family portrait, but no one will help. How will she ever figure it out?
Here is a sneak peak of the first page.
