Yes, it's written directly in SignWriting, without reference to spoken language.  It's not a huge project, only 7-8 pages of text.  Sleeping Beauty was a much bigger project!!! ;-)  I'm meeting my brother on Thursday and I'll see how he's coming with the illustrations, and then I'll start posting the text here so you can check it out and make sure it's readable.  I'd welcome feedback on some of the actual signs and the grammar too - I discovered in North Dakota that I use a fairly old-fashioned form of ASL, and the language has changed a fair bit since the '80s.  (Regionally, anyway . . .)  So, feedback welcome!
