"It's more important now, than ever before, to help children unfold into their own splendid uniqueness."
"It all started with a question. Doesn't everything?"
Three cheers for my daughter, Annie! Her persistent questions became the title of my first published children's book, DO PRINCESSES WEAR HIKING BOOTS? Of course every good question deserves a good answer, or at least a point in the right direction. As you may have noticed in many of my books, I'm quite fond of Q and A. But did you also know I am equally fond of metaphors? (THE TUMBLEWEED CAME BACK.) And whacky humor too? (THANK YOU, AUNT TALLULAH!)
The long awaited book trailer for THE TUMBLEWEED CAME BACK just rolled into town.
THE TUMBLEWEED CAME BACK is here, at last! Order now from your favorite BOOKSELLERS. A hilariously entertaining tale told in rhyme about a young boy, his granny, and one horrid, wicked weed: The Tumbleweed. The two learn quickly that no matter how hard (and ridiculously) they try to get rid of the tumbleweed, it just keeps coming back. Hmmmmm.
The catchy rhythm, loosely based on the folksong—"The Cat Came Back," is guaranteed to get stuck in your head:
"♪ The tumbleweeds came back the very next day.
Even more came back!
They just wouldn't stay away.
Hopping on the picket fence and rolling up the stoop.
Rolling in and rolling through and out the chicken coop. ♪"
