The title of my last post mentioned Two New Children’s Books. The second one is likely to be titled “Something REALLY, REALLY, BIG!” I began the project last year but set it aside to write and publish several fiction and non-fiction books and anthologies for readers who are adults and young adults. Now that most of those projects have been released, I’ve decided to bring Kigra to life while wrapping up a couple of other books for older readers.
Long-time readers of this blog may recall that Ki-Gra’s parents combined the words “Kind” and “Grateful” to create his name so whenever he hears it he’ll hopefully remember to be Kind and Grateful.
Here’s the concept illustration created by my wonderful Illustrator Josh McGill featuring Ki-Gra talking with his forest friends.
