North Trail Elementary School was privileged to welcome Mike Wohnoutka, an award winning author and illustrator from our very own Minnesota, on November 3, 2016. Wohnoutka is the author and illustrator of several children’s picture books including Moo and Little Puppy and the Big Green Monster. He spent the day at North Trail speaking to students and families about the process of writing and illustrating books.  

During his time at the school, Wohnoutka presented special illustrations to kindergarten through 2nd grade students. He had lunch with 25 students from K-5 classrooms who were chosen by random drawing. Finally, he  gave a special presentation in the evening to families and students. Josh Jackson, North Trail Elementary Information and Technology Literacy (ITL) Specialist, said of the experience: “The North Trail community enjoyed learning about the process of writing and illustrating children’s books. Thanks to the PTP for funding this experience!” NTES Author Visit
