The Scholastic Summer Reading Road Trip - Part 1

by Peter Raymundo

     For the second year now, Scholastic has decked out a couple of RV's and hit the road to promote summer reading.  The kickoff was held at The Vero Beach Book Center in Vero Beach, Florida.  This is a truly magnificent store.  I love this place.  It's 2 stories of storytelling bliss. And some of the best parts are the walls.  Yes, the WALLS!  When they have visiting authors or illustrators come, they get them to draw on a blank spot, and there are fewer and fewer of those left.  So, being a visiting illustrator, I had the incredible honor of adding Cora Mermaid to their illustrious walls.
