On Monday my friend and Realm Makers roomie, Pam Halter, revealed the cover for her children’s book, Willoughby and the Terribly Itchy Itch.
“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”― C.S. Lewis
I’ve had the privilege of rooming with Pam at Realm Makers for two years now. She’s one of the hardest working, encouraging, and sweetest people you’ll ever meet. If you’re going to Realm Makers this year, pay close attention to the awesome table decorations. Pam put them together.
So, this week I’m super excited to help share the cover reveal for Willoughby and Friends, Book I: Willoughby and the Terribly Itchy Itch.
Willoughby has an itch he can’t reach. An itch he can’t scratch. Not just a little itch, a TERRIBLY ITCHY ITCH. Nothing he does will make it go away. What can a dragon do when he has an itch he can’t reach? He calls for help, of course! See how some unlikely friends get together to relieve Willoughby of his terribly itchy itch.
Willoughby is a young, somewhat clumsy, gentle dragon who is learning to live and interact with friends from the the Land of Dern. In this picture book series for ages 4-8, Willoughby learns about friendship, getting along with creatures different from himself, and discovers he can do things he never thought he could.
