  As prehistoric Alligator frolics in the water with his best friend, the tadpole Frog, their friendship soon suffers as Frog changes and is able to leave the water to jump across the land.
  Leaving the Alligator, who only had flippers at the time, behind, alone and sad. Then Frog brags about his new ability making Alligator even sadder.
  How this eventually results in the Alligator changing to the form we know today and defines what true friendship means is depicted in a charming story with over 25 full color illustrations.
  Also included is a section which teaches the young reader about the flora and fauna in a coastal habitat.

Beautiful, unframed, acrylic paintings of
your favorite furry friend done from your supplied photos

Faeriewyck Enchanted
Written By J.G. Eastwood

   The secretive and shadowy mountains in China, near Han's home, excite his curiosity and he enters the mysterious cave that sends out a beckoning glow.
  Inside he finds an old man sleeping, guarding an ancient treasure.
  Han's misguided shortcut to prosperity leads him and his pet cormorant into unimagined danger.
  This exciting and instructional story was inspired by the author's trip to Southern China and the Chinese legend of the Return The Peal Cave located there.
  It also combines this with the age old practice of how the fishermen use their pet diving birds to help them catch fish.
