He had a series of illustrations created based on some of the book’s stories, including a Kindergartener who thinks he’s French, a puddle of ketchup shaped like Elvis and something called, “Chicken Soup for the Kidnapper’s Soul.”
While the coloring contest sounded like fun, Wensink added a little excitement by offering an autographed stack of his favorite books from 2009 to the winner:
AM/PM, by Amelia Gray
Fool, by Christopher Moore
Tales Designed to Thrizzle, by Michael Kupperman
Help! A Bear is Eating Me!, By Mykle Hansen
