The Three Stars of My Latest Children’s Story in Full Color

Meet Wendy Goodlight, her pet kindness named Love, and the mean, nasty, and grim Grumbly Grumpadinkle. When they come together in my latest children’s book “Grumbly Grumpadinkle”, one of them will be changed forever.

I’m still writing the story, but I wanted to give to you a taste of what is to come in my fourth children’s book.

With Love,

      Thank you for your feedback, Ute. We actually struggled with the color choices with this one illustration more than perhaps all prior illustrations for all the other books combined, and invested a lot of time attempting to get Grumbly’s appearance just right, so I’m glad you liked them. I’m attempting to convey via imagery in both the text and illustrations several messages which I believe are important for everyone to understand. I believe that if children truly take these messages to heart early in their lives that it can have a profoundly positive impact on them and on the world.
