Happy New Year!

Well, maybe that should be "Hoppy"...? OK, that was sad, sorry.
"The Big Round Frog : A Cautionary Tale in Verse" has been out for about a month now and the response so far has been quite positive. I've had a bit of newspaper exposure recently, which you can check out online. You can read an article from the St. Thomas Times Journal here, which deals a bit more with my writing in general, or you can check out an article in the Sioux Lookout Bulletin here, although you may need a .pdf reader to access that one. If you have any problems with the links, let me know and I'll try to sort the problems out.

On to The Frog...

"The Big Round Frog" is a story about, well, you guessed it, a Big Round Frog!
Told in verse, the story relates what happens when a very quiet, very still Frog attracts the attention of several curious insects.
Here's an excerpt from pages 11 and 12 respectively...
"So Mosquito and Fly and new friend Bee
flew across the pond, to look and see.
"How strange!" said Bee. "He sits so still...

I think you're right. He sure looks ill!""

I will try to ad a few more images and excerpts over the next week or so. Until then, you can visit my Lulu page for ordering information on both "The Macaroni Disaster!" and "The Big Round Frog" here. So far most of my sales have been person to person locally. I'd sure like the web sales to pick up a bit (Hint, hint!).
That's all for now...I hope everyone has a great 2007 (Who knows, it might be the Year of the Frog!)

Awesome book, Mike! I tried posting a review, but I was unable to. Do you have reviews off?
