    Adam Lehrhaupt made us laugh with his entertaining monkey book, Do Not Open This Book.

    Bryan Collier demonstrated that hard work and determination pays off and his artwork was nothing short of inspiring. For 7 years, he hit the pavement until one day, someone said YES.

    Debbie Dadey taught us that a ‘no’ means you get back to the keyboard or the canvas and KEEP going.

    Linda Oatman High made us excited to be a writer and/or illustrator. Stories exist in even the smallest picture.

    And that was just Saturday morning!
