Hot off the Press…Wowwy and Me


Great bedtime reading!

Wowwy_cvr_draft_150604.inddMy new picture book has arrived! So you see – I’m not always a crotchety old boomer exercising my right to a few senior rants and raves on boomerrantz. I often sneak over to the lighter side to play in the sandbox and write stories for my awesome little friends.  Granted, it chafes my aging assets when the sand seeps into my granny bloomers. But I just shake, shake, shake it off…as the song goes.

Now back to my book, because after all, this is all about me – well, Wowwy and Me anyway – and I am shamelessly blowing my own bullhorn here. So what’s it all about, you might ask?

His red fur was matted and worn out…almost.
But he smelled like sunshine and warm buttered toast.

Summary from back cover:
Tilly is worried because her beloved stuffed mouse, Wowwy, is becoming more raggedy and dirty with each passing day. There’s even a chunk of fur out of his ear. He’s been stitched and scrubbed and patched many times. But now more extreme action is needed. What can Tilly possibly do to stop Wowwy from falling apart at the seams?

It’s my unabashed pleasure to introduce my newest book…Wowwy and Me
Beautifully illustrated by the very talented, Talysha Bujold-Abu
For little munchkins ages 2 – 6

Happy reading! See you between the lines.

  1. Congratulations! Can’t wait to read “Wowwy and Me” and give some copies to my friends for their grandchildren. I am so excited to see this book, and remember Wowwy well!


  2. Wonderful news, can’t wait to read it to my Grandkids especially the one who loves his poor worn out ‘favourite puppy’ and the one who loves her ‘penguin’. Her mother learned from the state of wowwy and favourite puppy and bought every penguin she could get her hands on so she could rotate regularly, hopefully avoiding ‘penguin burnout’. Very excited to be reunited with Wowwy and Tilley!


    • Thanks Mary…so nice to hear from you. I wrote an article for a magazine and mentioned your website as a resource. When I have a pub date for the article, I’ll let you know. Probably the fall.
