COMIC: "WebVoyagers in Yukon Quest" - Published in The Canadian Reader (Feb. 2012)

Cover: The Canadian Reader, Published by LesPlan Educational ServicesThe February 2012 issue of The Canadian Reader is now available to subscribing schools across Canada.

For this month's WebVoyagers comic, I had plenty of fun illustrating an action-packed sled dog adventure. Students will follow Sasha (a german shepherd) as he travels through the family's magical laptop and joins the real-life Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race!

Teachers can find related lesson plan activities and worksheets accompanying every WebVoyagers comic in each issue of The Canadian Reader (or Nos Nouvelles en fran├žais).

Here's a sneak preview of the comic ...
