Uh oh, Stanley is in TROUBLE (again). Trent Lakes Public Library was excited to welcome award-winning illustrator Bill Slavin, illustrator of the popular Stanley the Dog series, present during Story Time Program. Bill has illustrated over one hundred children’s books, both fiction and non-fiction, including Stanley’s Party by Linda Bailey (winner of the 2004 Blue Spruce Award) and the popular song The Cat Came Back. In 2014, he completed his Elephants Never Forget graphic novel trilogy, fulfilling a lifetime desire to return to the world of comic books that he loved in his youth. Pictured above is Bill Slavin with Skye and Charlotte Stewart. They are standing next to Bill’s illustration that he drew using suggestions from the kids (mermaid, bear, watermelon, unicorn, fairy, and a kitty). Story Time is every Wednesday morning at 11:00 at the Buckhorn branch of Trent Lakes Public Library. Everyone is welcome for the free program.
