Ducky’s New Ball–our first picture book is out!

Cover-Ducky's New Ball

When Ducky’s new ball bounces off the door of an underground home, she suddenly has a new friend to play with. But Spike’s spines pop Ducky’s new ball. The two friends try everything to fix it. Spike uses glue. Ducky tries tying the ball together. Nothing works until Ducky’s creative thinking, and Spike’s “spikes”, save the day.

Illustrated with hand-made dolls and scenery made by the author, Jennifer Carson.

3…2…1…Launch! Kickstart Fox Hollow Tales!


Today I launched the kickstarter for my project with illustrator Patricia Ann Lewis— she’s the fabulous artist who illustrated Hapenny Magick and To Find A Wonder. It’s a scarey feeling to put your work out to the world but also exciting =0)

Fox Hollow Tales is a series of stories set in New England in the 1830’s.

Wojer and the Wizard of the Wood

is the first tale in the series and stars a little badger named Wojer.  The neighborhood bully, Lilly, tries to scare Wojer with a story about a wizard who turns anyone who picks berries at the Old Lark Meadow into frogs. But Wojer humorously turns the tables on the Lily and her friends.
