- “Caramel Apple Challenge” by Anne Thalheimer
- “Midnight Snack” by Colin Tedford

Or download the PDFs and print your own for noncommercial use (there are two PDFs because the comics in them get cut differently):
(Do a test print before running off the whole batch!)
- Paper: Orange is best; don’t use white — the kids deserve color!
- Scale: 100% (aka “No scaling”).
- Orientation: Noted in file name; most are Landscape (the orientation of the file will be the opposite of the end product).
- Double-sided: Yes. If Landscape, “Bind on short edge”; if Portrait, “Bind on long edge” (option names may differ here; the desired end result is for the tops of both sides to be along the same edge). If you’re printing a master to use on a copier, you can print single-sided and double-side it on the copier.
- The file is laid out so you don’t need to rearrange the pages other than separating the comics from each other. You’ll see that printing the file once produces four copies of the comic on two sheets of paper; just cut them apart, fold, and staple. If you’re printing the whole set the comics will all be in a stack together. You’ll probably need to shorten the stack to cut; just avoid separating a comic’s sheets from each other (remember each comic has two sheets), and don’t accidentally staple different comics’ sheets together. You can use scissors, but a papercutter will save you a lot of work. If you don’t own one you can usually find one available for public use at a self-serve copy shop. The landscape file gets cut into 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ pieces; the portrait file gets cut into 8-1/2″ x 2-3/4″ pieces (save some measuring on the portrait file by cutting in half — to 8-1/2″ x 5.5″ — then stacking the pieces and cutting in half again).
