Holman Wang Wows Bulldogs

Edison's Bulldogs had a fun visit from Canadian author and artist, Mr. Holman Wang today. Mr. Wang and his twin brother developed a series of books for young children. They take classic stories like Pride and Prejudice and Moby Dick and reduce them to twelve words and twelve images for very young readers. They even have a series of books based on the Star Wars franchise!

Wang illustrates the books by creating characters out of felted wool. He also designs sets or stages the characters in actual environmental settings so that none of the backgrounds are computer generated.

Mr. Wang autographed books for six students selected by Edison staff, as well as for teachers during his visit. The presentation was arranged by first grade teacher, Amiee Turner.
