The one group never in attendance at a children's book conference? Children! And I don't have any. So I was thrilled to be invited to two kid functions a few weeks ago. An art show and a play featuring a couple of celebrities: In Sweden they are known as Den Talande Potatisarna; in England you may know them as The Chatty Tubers; but, here in America, we know them asTHE TALKING POTATOES!!!!!
Below are two kids who both did something amazing in less than seven days this summer.
Alice made a bunch of amazing paintings in four, half-days at her art camp -- check out her great art!
Alice also eats an Oreo like an alien surgeon -- I've NEVER seen anyone extract the white center bit intact like she can.
Lucy was OUTSTANDING in The Wizard of Oz as Ozma. She was in every scene and EVEN changed all of the Scene Titles. They had a week to learn all their lines, songs, choreography, and even make masks! Unbelievably terrific.
And somehow Lucy always finds the most flattering light -- check out that actress! A consummate professional already.
A sample of their day job work below. See more of them here.
