Katrina dislikes her SOJOURNS at the pet motel. Word of the Week with Guest Matt Phelan (10/20/2014): #KidLitWow

Author and Illustrator, Matt Phelan, is our paw-tastic video guest this week. Mr. Phelan is the author-illustrator of the award-winning graphic novels, The Storm in the Barn, Around the World, and Bluffton. He also has illustrated many books including The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron, which won the 2007 Newbery Medal. He is an all-around great guy, as we share in this post, and he is  an upcoming guest on "The Write Chat" - look for his interview in December! 

Mr. Phelan is here to introduce this week's word of the week: SOJOURN. Can you use the word SOJOURN in a sentence?
