I met the author of this book on a flight back to the US from Europe. The author and illustrator is a charming and intelligent woman, and I learned that she had self-published this story and a sister volume. I decided I had to have a copy.

I was not disappointed. Yeah, it's a children's story -- my kids are grown, and we have no grandchildren in the immediate forecast -- but I was charmed by the clever story-telling mechanic used and the watercolor illustrations by the author. I like this book, and will keep it on tap for the day when I do have grandchildren.
With every reading I have more respect for this writer's talent. Children love these wonderful books. I count myself among those children.
I gave this as a Christmas present and everyone I gave it to, loved it, young and old. I also have it for my 3 daughters and they love it and read it over and over. What a delight, I can't wait for the next one.
