Eve Culley’s Review
If you love silliness, rhythms and giggles then this is the book for you. Perfect for the Thanksgiving season, and best of all I found a YouTube video that you can watch with the family. Enjoy! 5 stars

About the Reviewer
Storytelling is as much a part of me as breathing is to my body. I have found that as I tell stories, putting them on paper, it makes room for the other stories that are building and will need to be told soon.
I write for children because of their wonderful imaginations. They are the very best at believing that the probable can become possible.
Nothing is any better than when the reader climbs into the adventure and joins the journey with you.
