Summer Brain Quest is Here!

by Rachel on April 18, 2017, no comments

Summer Brain Quest: Between Grades 1 & 2 is here! Last summer I drew ~300 interior spot illustrations of dragons, fairies, castles, and wildlife for Workman Publishing’s newest Brain Quest educational collection: it’s a workbook, a game, and an outdoor adventure!

As you complete activities, you earn stickers to track your progress on the included map. The book is jam-packed with curriculum-based exercises, bonus challenges, outside activities, over 150 stickers, a summer reading list, and a Brain Quest mini deck.

If you have a child between grades 1 & 2 (or just have passionate nostalgia for after-school workbooks, like me!) you should definitely check this book out.

I’ll be selling at SPX this weekend, September 17 & 18! I’ll have Frankie Comics 1-3, Steven Universe: Too Cool for School, the brand new Oath anthology (which Megan Rose Gedris and I have a story in), Frankie merchandise, and original art for sale. I’ll also have a copy of the Beyond anthology on display; which was nominated for an Ignatz this year!

I’ll be at M4 with Carey Pietsch and Benji Nate, neighboring Luke Healy, Jon Chad, Laura Terry, and Randall Trang. (Two tables down from Silver Sprocket and Michael Sweater.) Hope to see you there! ❤️
