James Burks is the creator or "Bird and Squirrel on the Run." When a feathered and a furry pair outwit Cat, they become fast friends with a zany adventure to boot. Bird is the eternal optimist and Squirrel is terribly afraid of his own shadow. What a pair these two make!

Doug TenNapel's newest graphic novel is "Cardboard." When the worst birthday present magically comes to life, Cam and his dad are astonished. Unfortunately, the neighborhood bully gets to it and warps the gift into his own evil creation. Cam must now save his town from disaster. Will he be able to do this in time?

And Raina...well, that's me.
