 What a turnout for our Cartooning Club last night! Normally, about 12 kids show up to talk comics, cartoons, draw stuff and watch some animation. Last month, there were 16 kids and last night, a whopping 24 kids! The big group made it a fun atmosphere as we jumped in drawing a cool creature for the Halloween season- the mummy! I then talked about Disney's "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (part two of the "Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad") and the real-life background of Washington Irving's classic. And then, we watched the classic cartoon with lots of laughs and chilling moments! Things were "wrapped up" (get it?) with the kids collaborating on a Halloween banner which now hangs in the children's area of the library!
