Adventures in Cartooning, Christmas Special, by James Sturm, Andrew Arnold, and Alexis Frederick-Frost, is the third in a series of sprightly books that encourage kids to go out and make cartoons of their own. It’s out just in time for the holidays, and here’s a delightful extra: An original comic by Sturm, Frederick-Frost, and Arnold about what two kids do when the lights go out. If you like the style of this, you’ll love the book.
