Jake's landscape of adventure

Like most eight-year-old boys, Jake Fisher likes a bit of adventure. So when he decided to draw a landscape it had to include a few scary things.

“Sometimes things can seem scary at first, but then you find out they are fun – like a roller-coaster ride,” Jake said. His action-packed picture is filled with activities, and if you look closely, you’ll see that not all is as it first appears.
