Oh Brother!: Is Your Kid A Character Contest
Would your child make the perfect comic strip character? Award-winning syndicated cartoonist Bob Weber, Jr. ("Slylock Fox and Comics for Kids") and Emmy® Award-winning creator Jay Stephens ("Tutenstein" and "The Secret Saturdays") have teamed up and created the humorous comic strip, Oh, Brother!
The strip's two main characters are Bud and Lily, a brother and sister who are as different as night and day. Seven-year-old Bud likes getting into mischief while 12-year-old Lily tries to keep him in check. With their lovable dog, Buster, by their side, their everyday adventures are hilarious.
Sound familiar? Is your son or daughter an impulsive prankster like Bud, or maybe he or she is precocious like Lily? If so, tell us how and your child could win a coveted guest spot in the nationally syndicated comic, Oh, Brother! Share a funny story about how your kid is a character like Bud or Lily in the text box below. All submissions will be read by a select panel of impartial blogging moms. If your story ranks as a favorite, your child may get the chance to be a part of the Oh, Brother! gang and get drawn into the strip as a classmate of Bud's or as Bud and Lily's neighbor! Finalists will be featured on the Oh, Brother! Web site and the winning entry will be selected on March 21. Plus, five runners up will receive an autographed "Oh, Brother!" drawing by Bob Weber, Jr. and Jay Stephens. Please make sure to include your child's name and your contact information on the form, then scroll down and hit the submit button once you've filled out all the information.
