PBParty 22: Dear Squirt, Humorous PB

Genre: Humor, Picture Book
Word Count: 490


Dear Agent:

It's Sis against Squirt, an older sister that would rather keep her room just the way she left it—Squirt may refer to the NO TRESPASSING sign on the door.

Too bad Sis is away at camp and a measly sign ain't going to the trick.  Sis isn't about to give up, told through a series of letters, Sis begs, threatens and everything in between until she stumbles upon a foolproof plan to keep Squirt out. She better act quick before Squirt completely destroys her room. 

I'm both a SCBWI and Writers' Guild of Alberta member. I'm currently running a summer reading program, for ages 5-12, at my local library.

Thank you for this opportunity to share my work.

First 50 words:

Dear Squirt:

While I’m away at camp, please stay out of my room.



Dear Sis:

Why? You’re not even using it.

Love me

Dear Squirt:


P.S. You may refer to the no trespassing sign on my door.

Dear Sis:

I never barely go in your room.
