DES MOINES, IOWA-College roommates at the University of Iowa and friends for over 40 years, Barbara G. Carroll, author and Ann Dekker Wolf, illustrator have collaborated on writing and illustrating children's books to help benefit select charities with a portion of their book sales.
Already released are "Harry, the Mouse Who Lived In My Car," the story of a mouse who lives in one messy car, but that works out perfectly for him. With soft laundry to sleep in and cheese puffs for dinner, Harry is living the good life until the car's owner discovers him on the floorboards.
Readers learn if Harry and the driver can learn to coexist, or if Harry will get the boot in this engaging story.
"Valentine, a purr-fect kitty" is Barbara G. Carroll's second children's book in print. Valentine is a cat, and she finds a new home with Mr. and Mrs. Bee.
