The Gulp, drawn by Hudson (aged six) using a trackball mouse. Our six year old son, Hudson, and I have been writing a children's book together, called Hudson's Fantastickal Club House . Most of the ideas are Hudson's - the story is inspired by his imaginary Club House in a graceful old olive tree in our garden - and we have had enormous fun writing it. We also have ambitious plans to build the Club House/tree house one day! At some point we will put it all together into a book, perhaps in this form, perhaps geared more toward illustrations. We will also publish more chapters here and probably on its own blog page. In the meantime, we thought you might enjoy the first chapter, " The Gulp. " Click here to read. We hope you enjoy...and please feel free to comment!
