Ally-saurus Contest

In my two Ally-saurus books, I illustrate Ally’s love of all things dinosaur by drawing imaginary claws, spikes, and tail using colorful crayon over her (black and white) picture.

Now it’s your turn! Draw yourself in pencil, then draw what you love to play (or pretend to be) in crayon over the picture!  You can draw your own or use the template below (click on the image to download and print).  The choice is yours. The important thing is to have fun using your imagination!   

When you're done, email a copy to and I will post it on this site! All classrooms who participate will qualify for a free author visit via Skype. This fall, three participants will be chosen at random to receive a signed original drawing of Ally-saurus! Good luck and have fun! 

 Here's an example. First draw yourself in pencil.


Then show us what you really love!
