When my daughter Anna was 3.5 years old, we created this story together during car rides to and from preschool. In telling it again and again, it grew into the story that is now in this book. My father, artist Charles Hobson, did a fabulous job illustrating and designing it. This 3-generation project is now on Amazon, heydaybooks.com, and in local bookstores. Signed copies will also be at my next Open Studio on April 25 & 26 in Muir Beach.
Here is a taste of the plot: “A very hungry wolf eats the sky, plunging the whole world into darkness, but a brave boy and a menagerie of animals are determined to bring back the light.”
To learn more about the book and the process in creating it, please read this interview with me and my father by Mariko Conner at Heyday.
The book trailer video features Anna at 3.5 years old telling a version of the story. Enjoy!
