"A Dragon's Tooth" is a fairy tale told by the court jester, about a lovable dragon, an absent minded sorceress, a thoughtful princess and a pure of heart hero who must deal with the king offering his daughters hand in marriage to the first to slay the Great Dragon Basilisk and bring back a tooth as proof. It is a story full of obstacles that each character must address by using their brains instead of the sword. The art work as well as the story is bright colorful, cute and original. Children will want to embrace each lovable character and reach out to the challenged characters as they each face their obstacle.
Writing and illustrating children's books was something I started for my nieces and nephews. I wanted them to have wonderful memories of our family gatherings. Then one day, my ten year old niece,"Sheila" asked her teacher if she could bring her Auntie Jackie for show and tell. I went dressed as a jester, the kids loved my story. They were asking me for my autograph and wanted to know if my books were in the bookstores? I had to get published for the kids, so here I am my first book. It is very exciting! Watch for my second book, it is currently underway, "Shredder Ate My Tail."
