“charming…will prove to be an enduringly popular addition to family, elementary, and community library collections.”
– Midwest Book Review
“original and fun, and I love the music!”
– Shutta Crum, National award winning children’s author
“I LOVE your book! It’s really just perfect. The illustrations – perfect; the music on the CD – perfect. Can hardly wait to read the book to my grandkids, but I’ll have to get another copy for them. I’m keeping mine!”

Books & Music

Kitty has two books out right now ~ “Henny and Benny Bunyan and the Maple Syrup Adventure” and an all-Michigan song and information (and recipes!) project. Both books come with music CDs.

Looking for the ‘right’ gift for someone? Whether a child or a grown-up, if they love Michigan or you want them to know more about our state and to keep it ‘local,’ here’s a last-minute offering. I’ve been working on developing gift boxes that contain my books along with high quality all~Michigan food products, all made by your neighbors. Get the family involved ~ make the pancakes (flapjacks), read the stories, sing the songs and dance in the kitchen!
