Exploring the Montréal Biodôme in WebVoyagers Comic - Published in The Canadian Reader (Feb. 2011)

Cover: The Canadian Reader, Published by LesPlan Educational ServicesThe February 2011 edition of The Canadian Reader is now available for use in elementary school classrooms across Canada.

This month, the kids explore the diversity of life at the Montréal Biodôme in our WebVoyagers comic (Written by Vivien Bowers, Illustrated by Mike Cope). Special thanks to my editor, Janet Wieczorek, at LesPlan Educational Services Ltd.

Drawing the various animals and environments for this comic was very fun. Students and teachers will travel from the antarctic to the tropical rainforest, meeting penguins, capybaras, a Canadian lynx, two-toed sloth, caiman, and my personal favourite ... a Poison Arrow Frog!
