I’m delighted with author/illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi‘s graphic review of my latest novel, The Yo-Yo Prophet. Debbie faithfully completes a “daily drawing” – an excellent way to stay inspired and fresh. After reading The Yo-Yo Prophet, Debbie created this daily drawing based on the main character, 15-year-old Calvin Layne:
Here’s what Debbie had to say about the book:
“So many reasons to love THE YO-YO PROPHET: the way the main characters change throughout the book, … the tension and excitement of Calvin’s yo-yo performances and competitions, how Calvin reacts to and eventually finds a way to cope with bullying, how he deals with his missing father and the declining health of his grandmother. Uplifting and hopeful ending without being clichéd.”
