I created my first children’s story book, “The Legend of Maize: Quetzalcoatl and the Corn Plant,” for a Cinco de Mayo party at my English training center in Beijing. I couldn’t find any other book in our library to use at the party, so I found the legend of Quetzalcoatl and retold it using art I created with Adobe Illustrator CS3. The kids enjoyed it, and now our school has a great addition to its library collection. I enjoyed making it too.
