Young Readers' Creations

Any time young draw pictures, make videos, or whatever about one of my books, I will post their work here!

If anyone makes a video about any of my books and puts it on YouTube, Vimeo, or elsewhere, please send me the link and I will post that.

Here's a video from YouTube made by 5th graders about Riddle!

The description posted with it?

When they couldn't find the movie for the novel, Riddle of Penncroft Farm, Mr. Bentley's 5th grade class asked, "Can we make it?". So they did. They wrote the screenplay and acted the scenes. Between the eight groups, they tried to write their scripts in a way that the main plot ideas of the book would be conveyed through the small selection of scenes. Enjoy!

Here's another fun dramatization of Riddle I found on YouTube!
