A special guest paid a visit to Elida Elementary School, Tuesday morning, all part of his sixteen school trip through the Buckeye State.

Children's book illustrator and author, Scott Magoon of Boston has been writing, designing, and illustrating books for young readers for fourteen years. While he enjoys doing all of that, he says he loves getting out and giving presentations to elementary schools about his career and what he does. This week, he is in Ohio, which is the farthest west he has been for these presentations.

During each 45-minute session, Magoon talked about drawing and why he enjoys it, as well as the process of getting illustrations into books. He also drew some characters from scratch using digital drawing before allowing some kids to come up and play "Draw-Spaghetti", which gave them the chance to find hidden objects in a plate of "Spaghetti." It's seeing the excitement on the kids' faces and letting them get involved that he enjoys most.

Magoon will be visiting other schools in Ohio for the rest of the week before returning home.
