Grandfather Four Winds and Rising Moon
My first published children’s book, this sweet tale is about a young boy and his wise, blind grandfather who uses a teaching story about an apple tree and a pine tree to comfort his grandson.
It was a joy to illustrate this story and the author and I became friends thru the process of creating the book. There are some hidden animals in the beginning which young eyes are sure to find.
The book is now out of print but copies can still be found new and nearly new thru Amazon’s network. I’ve met many families who say it was their child’s favorite book.
Hard-bound with a slip-cover. A beautiful presentation that will last a lifetime and beyond.
My second children’s book with the same publisher, this book won several awards including one from the Smithsonian.
The book tells the tale of a brave young girl who tries to save the family farm but runs into trouble when she is captured by two dragons who challenge her with an impossible task.
The story is ultimately about conflict resolution and as such the book was translated and produced in the Middle East to teach children how to find better solutions to competing factions.
Now out of print, new and near new copies can be found in Amazon’s system. Children love the very bright colors and the great teaching story too.
