Exciting News!

Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb, an Eisner-award winning art team, are coming to Hampden Meadows School on Friday, December 8 to share their creative lives with our students. They will meet with each grade level to do a hands-on assembly where students will get a chance to unleash their creativity.

This talented couple has colored for Raina Telgemeier's graphic novels, illustrated for many graphic novels and series, as well as created their own graphic novels. Students will enjoy getting the "inside scoop" on what it is like to be able to harness your creativity for a career.

You can purchase their titles ahead of time through any bookseller you wish and send the book in with your child by Thursday, December 7 if you'd like Shelli and Braden to sign it. Barrington Books has ordered three of the books below that you can purchase before the event.

Making Scents

Mickey isn't quite like his brothers and sisters. They're all stronger, faster, and have a much better sense of smell. That s because his "brothers and sisters" are dogs bloodhounds, to be exact. Mickey s mom and dad are crazy about canines. Their dogs are the loves of their lives and their livelihood. So, naturally, they re raising their son as if he was a dog, and Mickey wants nothing more than to make his parents proud.

Just as Mickey is mastering the art of sniffing, a tragic accident forever changes his happy family. Mickey is sent to live with relatives he's never met, relatives who are not fond of kids . . . and who hate dogs!
