Author/Illustrator Jonathan Miller’s Visit
All students at Chapman were able to hear Jonathan Miller read his book, The Adventures of Sammy the Wonder Dachshund, today. Mr. Miller not only writes, but also illustrates his books. He told the students that he creates the illustrations using collage, which means he cuts out hundreds of tiny pieces of paper to create each picture. He said that the longest time it ever took to create one of the pictures was 85 hours. He also told the students that he had to rewrite his first book 18 times before it was published. A big thanks to Mr. Miller for coming all the way from Charleston to visit with the Chapman Chiefs today!
