STARRY NIGHT STORIES 2


This is a trio of wonderful children's stories with numerous art illustrations and high quality photographs. Children and young-at-heart adults can read these large print stories.

Most of the text in this book is Comic Sans 18-font bold. It is a popular font for visually impaired and dyslexic readers. It is also a font many young readers can read with ease.

"The Secret Hole" takes four children on an astonishing adventure to Chuckles Village, an enchanting imaginary world where they meet talking animals and sweet people. The children's exciting journey leaves them capable of whistling better than most people in the world, except for Grandpa Tim. But, there is a reason that Grandpa Tim has the extraordinary whistling ability too.

"Falabella" is a story about a miniature horse that is sad because she is smaller than the other horse children at her school. She is laughed at and made fun of because she is different. She has no friends. One day one of her classmates chooses to befriend her, and it changes many lives. This story shows children that friendship can heal a broken heart and can make the world a better place.

Grandpa Tim wrote a song titled, "CC Railroad," for his granddaughter. The story, "CC Railroad," is a compliment to the song. The story has unexpected twists and turns. A little girl and her dad think they are going on a pleasant steam train ride. They meet a girl who is the daughter of the conductor. She assures them that they will see many animals and birds as the train rumbles through the forest.

But, robbers force the train to stop; they kidnap everyone except the two girls who are able to quickly hide. With encouragement from wild horses that run beside the tracks, the girls bravely journey throughout the night with one goal in mind --- they are going to get their dads back and rescue everyone!

2019: My name is Zara Edwards. I am a sixteen-year-old high school junior. After school my favorite activity is drawing. Since I was little I have loved drawing, but I didn't take art seriously until the seventh grade. My favorite things to illustrate are video game and TV show characters, self-portraits, and some abstract art. My favorite medium is markers; however, I work with numerous mediums. This is my second opportunity to illustrate for a book, and I am very excited about it. Art is my hobby, but I would like to utilize it more when I'm older, by possibly becoming an architect.
