Sweet Dreams - Words And Pictures Advent Calendar

Reindeer with Candy-Striped Antlers
Spritzed with peppermint from her head to her toes - she shall have Christmas wherever she goes






My reindeer illustration is behind today's window on the Words and Pictures digital advent calendar. It features illustrators from the Society Of Children's Writers and Illustrators SCBWI, with tweetable micro stories posted in the comments below each picture.


I've tweeted from the beginning of December, not knowing which day my illustration would appear. It's so much harder to come up with something when it's your own picture. Also - writing short tweets of 140 characters (including hashtag and Twitter handle) - I'm compelled to use rhythm and rhyme. Shame on me!


There have been some wonderful stories so far. Together the words and pictures offer a unique and often humorous narrative.


You can post your own tweetable caption here - don't forget to leave space for #W8PAdvent  and your Twitter handle.

    With red and white candy canes topping her head, she'll outdo Rudolph when pulling the sled.
