A little wee pock and a water-blue pret sail off across Twillaby Pond on a wind-blown leaf to more adventure than they expected – sailing through a rainbow, meeting a whole new world of pond inhabitants they’d never even known about. Exhausted at the end of a long, long day and worried about how to get back home they get assistance from an unexpected source.

This book is dedicated to my father whose love of poetry and fondness for reciting it started me down the Rhyming Road and to my mother, always encouraging me and making sure I had food.

Experience the magic of springtime as it comes to life with flowers blooming, birds singing and many other signs that make spring aglow. The inspiration for this book was the result of the author's final exam for a Children's Literature class at Ohio University in the spring of 1966. At that time, the author's professor suggested that it was worthy of being published. The book was then put in a closet and read from time to time to younger family members. Fifty-two years later, How Do We Know That Spring's Aglow is a timeless theme that is enjoyed as much by readers today as it was when it was written in 1966.

Coal Coalson and Andy Anderson are two cousins setting out on the riverside adventure of their lives! The ornery ten and eight year olds have swallowed their PawPaw's fishing "tail" hook, line, and sinker, about Charlie, a legendary GIGANTIC catfish. This yellow-finned catfish is "as Big as a house and as long as a tree." And as the story goes, has "eaten bicycles, a helmet and many a shoe." The mischievous boys spend a hot summer's day creating a tale of their own, exploring the river from above and below the surface in pursuit of the catch of a lifetime. "Charlie the Catfish" takes us back to those carefree summer adventures that become mystical family tales passed down from generation to generation.
