A to Z Challenge: V is for Village

Hello! *waves* I hope you've forgiven me for yesterday's "U" post—especially since I dropped another way that you can WIN a full set of the Superman Duffy series of graphic novels. But sometimes, these posts for the Blogging From A to Z Challenge can be tough!

Not sure what the challenge is about? Click here for the deets, or here for my theme reveal. And of course, you're welcome to read my past posts—starting with the letter "A" here.

Also, if you haven't read my "C is for canola" post, you should—you could WIN a set of all 15 of the Superman Duffy graphic novels, signed by the author. (Hint: This is the easiest way, but so far, there are FOUR different ways to win...scroll through my pas posts for more information!)

V is for Village

I haven't talked much about IT TAKES A VILLAGE on the blog, which doesn't make sense, because the theme of the book is "careers in agriculture"—and you may be surprised at how many there are. Working in the industry doesn't stop at tending to animals or crops...there are actually hundreds of jobs in agriculture, and "cartoon me" explores a bunch of them in this "Freaky Friday" story.

It's probably the funniest book in the series, even though the topic is kind of serious.

My parents sometimes ask me if I plan to be a farmer, since I love spending time at my grandparents's canola field—and not just running around it, either. I like doing chores, or riding alongside Grandpa in his tractor.

But after reading IT TAKES A VILLAGE, I realized that if my career as a track star doesn't pan out, I have some great options—like, writing articles for an agriculture newspaper. "Cartoon me" plays a "reporter" in the book "O," but one appears in this story too, taking pictures and writing a feature about "Grandma" who has grown a prize-winning tomato. Seriously, you should see it!

Well actually, you CAN see it, if you order the book from the Alberta Canola Producers Commission...or of course, if you try winning the whole set.

Gotta jet! See you tomorrow for my "W" post—can you believe we're almost through the WHOLE alphabet?
