Wandering Cartoonist Day!

        Heim, who admits to loving kids and animals, will demonsrtate for children of all ages how easy and fun it is to make art. He will also be happy to sign copies of his book, The Squeaking Earl.
        The Wilkes-Barre-based cartoonist is pictured, at left in the second row, next to the Squeaking Earl. Other characters from the book which Heim wrote and illustrated include, front row, left to right: Owl, on oboe; Hound, on horn; Cat, on strings, purring out vocals in the style of swing;  Hare, on snare, and a sheep on sax, all hoping to make the public aware. The cartoonist said he had trouble finding a word that rhymed with "sax." 
        As a reminder, Heim says that since Wandering Cartoonist Day is not yet a national holiday, those with jobs will be expected to show up for work on Monday, May 14.
