In the spring of 2010, Mike Thedford learned he was going to be a daddy, and was immediately consumed by the drive to Make Something For The Child.
The resulting swingset fell over within a month.
Learning from this failure, Thedford began to craft something unlikely to crush his legacy: a book. He recruited the immensely talented Meeks Purisima, who had immortalized his beloved pet hedgehog the previous year, and got to work crafting poesy and art direction.
Meeks, meanwhile, took his scribblings and some chalk and made miracles. A few months of back-and-forth later, and the book was born. And people loved it, unanimously telling the pair to publish.
So contacts were contacted and prices priced, distribution planned and International Standard Book Numbers obtained. And now two dreamers who only wanted to tell a story about a prickly young lady with a big imagination are here, in your hands. Please treat us nicely!
