It has been a life-long ambition for me to illustrate a children's book. When my children were small, we often made up stories. This one was a favorite. After a class at WriteOn Door County with Nancy Carlson, I decided to take the plunge and she gave me the tools to organize my ideas. When my son announced that we were to be grandparents, I decided to write and illustrate this book and dedicate it to my precious Juliet.
