By Russ Towne

Ki-Gra was a small, young chipmunk, who lived in a big, old forest. His parents wanted him to grow up to be kind and grateful. They named him by putting parts of the two words together.

One day, Ki-Gra had an idea. It wasn’t just a tiny idea. He wanted to do something BIG! But what?

He thought until his head hurt. But, he still couldn’t think of anything big to do.

(To Be continued…)

The next step is for the illustrator to turn the sketches into full-color illustrations.
