“The Puppy Prince”

Said Candace following the event:
“The Friday I spent there with the Pre-K, kindergarten, and first grade classes was truly incredible. The children were filled with curiosity, and actively participated in any activity they could. I truly hope the impact they had on me was mutual; if even one young boy or girl went home after that day and decided to apply their enthusiasm and creativity towards anything they feel passionate about (for many children I talked to, this was drawing or writing) I would be satisfied. Perhaps one of the most rewarding moments for me as an author/illustrator was when I signed a well-read copy of The Puppy Prince, its wrinkled pages evidence of young children having eagerly thumbed through it.”
