Summer, haikus, and a new book for you!

Guess what? Tomorrow is the FIRST DAY OF SUMMER!

It’s one of my favourite seasons. Know why? Because so many awesome things happen in the summer. Like, family ice cream trips after the Saturday Farmer’s Market. The end of the school year. My BIRTHDAY! And So. Much. More.

I love summer and this year is going to be one of the best ever! I’m spending a whole week at the Calgary Stampede with Grandpa and some of my friends in the Alberta Canola Producers’ Commission booth. Stop by to check out my adventure comic books, including the newest story, 5-7-5 Errand Boy.

I don’t want to give too much away, but the title is definitely inspired by the story. It’s about my birthday, and how no one remembers it…

Instead, my Mom asks me to run a whole bunch of errands for her (ugh), and her instructions are written in the form of a haiku. You know what that is, right?

Well, it’s a type of poem made up of three lines. The first line has five syllables. The second has seven. And the third has five. So, the book is called 5-7-5 Errand Boy. Get it? Ta da!

Here’s an example — the first haiku from the book:

At the flower shop
Pick dark blue roses and more -
Gram’s royal beauties

Curious to know what happens next? Email me at for a chance to WIN a free copy.

And don’t forget to stop by the Alberta Canola Producers Commission booth at the Calgary Stampede this year. There are some exciting events planned you won’t want to miss!

Gotta jet!
