The first book I ever wrote

Recently came across this book I wrote in 2nd grade. It’s called¬†Oscar and Alphonse¬†(misspelled on the cover). About caterpillars with a lot of attitude.

The thing about this book is that I it’s hardcover and very nicely put-together. I don’t really remember writing it, but the process of hole-punching, sewing the pages together, wrapping the book board and gluing it all together is still very fresh in my mind. I think it took about two weeks to complete (it was a class project) and remember feeling very proud of the final product (which maybe accounts for the hubris in the “About the Author”)

Hope you enjoy!
