Vinalhaven Building Houses With Chris Van Dusen

Chris Van Dusen, beloved children’s author and illustrator of the Mr. Magee series and The Circus Ship, launched his new tour with IRW around his brand new book If I Built a House.  The book focuses on imaginative little Jack, of If I Built a Car fame, who is dreaming up a special house like no other.  Think Calvin and Hobbes meets the Jetsons.  The kids on Vinalhaven were ready for Chris with their own dream houses and models to share.  Among their ideas were a huge swimming pool room, a butler room (you know, for their personal butlers), and of course everyone’s favorite: a regenerative chocolate room.  Seriously.  Why didn’t we think of that?!  Thanks to Vinalhaven School and staff, and to Chris Van Dusen for a terrific launch on another wild, whirlwind coastal tour!
