Made with Story CreatorThe Volcano Dragon
A very well thought through story. A warm hearted hero 'monster' (with a lot of aaah factor) who, it looks like, won't be able to receive his reward. Clear, well written, lots of description and good pictures. Well done.

Made with Story CreatorThe mystery of the moon, by Alani Emery
This story shows really well how you can use your own drawings creatively for illustration. For example, the author has shown only part of her picture in some of the screens, because just that part was needed to illustrate that page of the story. She has also made good use of material available in the E2BN Gallery for other scenes - all carefully chosen. Additionally, the story is well thought out and care has been taken with the spelling and punctuation. Well done!
