Ricky is Coming!

Be on the lookout!  He’s coming!  Who, you say?  Well, Ricky, of course!

Who is Ricky you ask?  Let me tell you a little secret.  Ricky the Rambunctious Raccoon is coming to town.  No one knows about him yet.  Ricky is a friend of Louey the Lazy Elephant.  He is very excited to join his buddy Louey on Amazon.com and eventually Kindle.

He is an adorable but rambunctious little raccoon who is always getting into trouble.  He is written in rhyme that will be a joy to children to read along and recite the repetitive rhyme at the end of each page.  They will be laughing at Ricky’s antics and all the troubles he experiences.

My husband, John, is the illustrator for Ricky as he was for Louey.  John has an inimitable style all his own as he creates and brings my stories to life.

Keep a lookout for this little guy.  You can’t miss him. He is wearing a mask and has a stripped tail.

His new cover will be posted here soon and on my website and on PIA site. image

  1. I can’ t wait to meet Ricky and I’m sure Louey is excited as well. He’s probably not napping as much.
