"Thank You to Verla Kay" Campaign

Verla Kay's Blue Board and Award Winning Website has been an inspiration, a sounding board, a research tool, a friend finder, a motivator, a soapbox, a response time resource, a critique tool, an event announcer, a good news board, a place to discuss children's literature, and a fun place to hang out!

Somehow she not only keeps this small community running smoothly, but she finds time to write too! Check out her latest book is
Rough, Tough Charley, a non-fiction biography about a stagecoach driver from the 1850's and 1860's written in her signature style of cryptic rhyme.

I've gotten so much out of the blue board. Now it's time for me to join the campaign. I'm asking my library to order her latest book and I'm buying a copy of it and Tattered Sails. How about you? Show your support and join the campaign! And thank you Verla Kay!

You can find out more about all of Verla Kay's books here. And buy them here or here.

Isn't 'Rough Tough Charley' terrific? I'm proud to say I introduced Adam Gustavson to Tricycle about a year-and-a-half ago when I worked with him on 'Just Kidding.' He did such a wonderful job with the historical details and characterization of Charley. The text and illustrations work wonderfully together. Thanks for blogging about the book!

Thanks for visiting Rampian. It is such a cool book! I love the whole historical thing. I haven't seen "Just Kidding" yet, I have to look for that one.
