Factoid with wings

I'm busy working away on another new Scratch and Sketch book for my friends at Peter Pauper Press. The topic is Butterflies and Friends, and I came across this interesting fact...dragonfles can fly up to 30 miles and hour! Yikes! If you see one near lakes or streams or rivers this summer, take a close look at their delicate wings. So pretty!

Thanks to all who came out for last night's signing at the new Borders in Wareham, MA. It's a great store, and a terrific place to beat the heatwave!

Hi Martha - I was lucky enough to catch your presentation at the library in Nantucket last week. I love your new book Journey Around Nantucket. I really think this book, and all your others, are gems for people of every age. You are not only a wonderful artist, but a great writer.

It was such a treat to meet you. You are just as special as are all of your books.

Can't wait for you next book - Natalie Hall, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Martha, this is big thank you for such a great class. All of us found it so helpful n our quest to publish a children's book. As an artist I appreciated having my illustration critiqued by a succrssful, published author (in such a gentle manner!). We are all hoping that you wll be offering more classes at the Museum or elsewhere - Thanks, J.N.
