“Excellent language and story line for kids that are always finding they don’t want to follow through with tasks they don’t like, then often find that sense of satisfaction when they actually put forth the effort.  Illustrations are delightfully connected to the words!” ~ reviewed by Melody Logan [FIVE STARS]

K. D. HUXMAN’s first love, after reading, was space. She wanted to be the first veterinarian astronaut. In college she studied biology and was in Air Force ROTC. After college she became an Air Force officer, but rocketing to the stars was not to be. She married a fellow Air Force officer and settled into raising a family, but never forgot her love of books or science. She earned an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Norwich University. After traveling around the country with the Air Force, she settled in Colorado. On a clear night she enjoys looking up at the stars, dreaming and writing. She has taught writing at the community college level and worked as an elementary school librarian. Children’s Picture Book publications include DRAGON TALK and GRIZZELDA GORILLA.
