    Penguin Center Stage: A Bird Of 80

    Today is my birthday, and I wanted to share a little bit of whimsy with everyone. It’s my 45th, and the 80th anniversary of a funny little character called The Penguin. Here is my version of a Penguin story highlighting that all birds can change colors. Oswald sat in his dressing room, his Tony and his Oscar on the shelf behind him. “You’ve come along way from Meredith Avenue Oswald.

    The Walrus – A Children’s Story

    This little story is dedicated to my niece Ana. The walrus figurine sat in the little China shop in the window. It wasn’t exactly beautiful, but it wasn’t ugly.

It was placed on a shelf in Ana’s room, where she could see it, but just out of reach. “Grandma I want to hold it. It’s…

    Rabbit Raccoon And Trout A Childrens Story

    Little Rabbit was hopping on his way to school, when Raccoon stopped him. Raccoon demanded his lunch, but that was his two carrots! Still, Raccoon was bigger, and stronger than Litle Rabbit, so he gave him his lunch. That night, Momma Rabbit could tell something was wrong.  When she read Little Rabbit, and his seventeen brothers and sisters a bedtime story, Red Fire Engine, Little Rabbit didn’t make all the fire engine sounds like he usually did. She had suspected something at dinner too, when he ate like he hadn’t eaten since breakfast, because he hadn’t. She talked to him when she tucked him in, and he told her everything. …
