"I am a preschool teacher, and I am frequently disappointed by a lot of the newer children's books. Bunny and Mr. Kittens in No Hopping has been a most welcome addition to my book corner! The illustrations are engaging and magical. The story is a refreshing reminder of just how exciting our own imaginations can be. A must have for any home or school library collection!"

My New Favorite Adventure Story
February 15, 2015
"Speaking as a preschool teacher who has spent over 25 years carefully selecting books to be part of my own children's library, this is one is definitely a welcome addition. The illustrations are delightful and the adventurous story line one that is sure to be enjoyed by young and old time and again." Debbie

Some questions for the author / illustrator:

How does one start a project of this size?  Especially, without any guarantee of interest from the publishing industry?
The answer is easy: The project starts itself.  I never really had a choice.  The character emerged and directed the action.  From the onset, there has been Bunny and Mr. Kittens.  They arrived early and fully fleshed out. They dragged a cardboard box behind them and spoke of their dream of space travel, particularly, landing on the moon.  Some details were mine to determine, but Bunny always retained veto power. 
"That is not how the story goes" was Bunny's mantra when creativity spun the plot in different directions.  Mr. Kittens did not weigh in on much, even when I asked him to take my side, but that is how sock toys are- shy and quiet.

Is Bunny a girl or a boy?  
YES.  Bunny is both. The character is a manifestation of  the child spirit before sexual identity and prejudice make their mark.  Every reader can identify with the character as they wish.

Will there be a sequel?
Bunny has some thoughts on that, but for the moment, I am enjoying the freedom of a project completed. (Shhhh. Bunny....No I'm not going to start that story yet...)
