Hello, Great Readers of our series! Just In case you haven’t visited before, let me tell you a little about A Great Nephew and A Great Aunt. My great nephew, Landon (a seventh-grader) and I (his great aunt) collaborate. I write a poem which he illustrates. We started this collaboration in the fall of 2014 and have had so much fun with it that we decided to invite others along. Landon and I will continue to have a new episode on the second Friday of each month. The other Fridays are filling up quickly with guests. I have created a page on my website to view all the episodes of A Great Nephew and a Great Aunt. Click HERE to visit the page and enjoy past episodes.

My great niece, Klaire, is collaborating with me today. She is one of Landon’s sisters. She’s been in the series before and I’m excited to share more of her work with you.

  1. Oh my, I love that turkey’s speech bubble and all of this, Penny and Klaire! This is a wonderful giggle after a day of thoughtful but sad poetry. Love “All board! Seatbelts!/Turkeys in a van.” Makes me laugh just typing it! Thank you!
