    Mike, I’ll show Caleb the excerpt on Amazon and see if he wants it. It sounds like a fun book. I might buy it for my nephews also. Congrats to Alex! Caleb has written a few books too, but they are based off the “There was an Old Lady” books, and another one has Sesame Street characters in it, so I don’t think we could publish them. This would probably encourage him though, to keep at it.

    Until next time, Shauna

      Thanks, Shauna. If Caleb does, I hope he likes it. If he likes to write, I hope you can nurture his talent. You may be able to find art (e.g. royalty-free clip art) you could you use to turn his books into illustrated stories and might even be able to publish them.

      I’m working on two more in the series, one about a zebra living in the safari country of Africa and the other about an elephant in Thailand who dreams of playing elephant polo. I’m hoping to publish them this year, and if so, I may offer all three stories in one book too. Stay tuned…
