I wanted to show off some images from the first show based on the children's book I illustrated. I have a ways to go in both puppet building and performing but we had a fantastic time. Here's the author reading from the book... And here's me and one of the kids, tentatively approaching Buddy... I found that kids seem a little wary of the puppets at first, but then they can't get enough. I could be standing right there and kids (and adults!) would talk to the puppet like I didn't exist. It was a ton of fun and we'll be doing it again soon!
