Laura's been having a lot of fun illustrating these John Smith is NOT Boring books for Scholastic recently. A brand new series written by Johnny Smith, the creator of Disney's Gnomeo & Juliet, this is the one of two books due out in April 2015. There are currently 4 books planned in the series to include: Book 1: Cap'n John the (slightly) fierce. Book 2: Sir John the (mostly) brave. Book 3: Sheriff John the (partly) wild. Book 4: Spaceman John the (nearly) bold.
