“Dylan and the Croak Orleans Gang” is a cute little book about a #frog named, Dylan, who follows his #dream of playing #music in the city of #Croak #Orleans. Ride with him in his blue and white pickup #truck, to see whom he meets along the way and what kind of #band he creates. This is a great book to introduce #musical instruments and talk about following dreams. The characters are wonderfully illustrated by Chester McDaniel and the story is well put together by Rhonda Patton. And, on a side note, I think the book also #teaches #acceptance since some of the #characters that come together are so unlikely!
A Shreveport residence, a mother, a wife, and a daughter. I have a wonderful husband who is the illustrator of the Ted and Raymond Series as well as my co-writer in Searching for the Unknown and Spirits of ChesterVille General Store. I started my love for writing at an early age of 13. I loved to write even if it didn't make sense. I started my writing in serious love poems and different things. Then in 2000 I wrote my first Ted and Raymond book that turned into a series, "The Croak 500". I didn't know that I would have a series until two years ago. As I researched for my husband to do voiceover work I came across some awesome people and then my book showed up. With NO animation or characters my husband made the book come alive. Then I was inspired to do more and more stories. And well.... Here I am. Inspiring kids to be better! www.thecroak500.com
