    How wonderful, someone else read your story aloud. I might be able to do it again for new children too! Great stuff!

      Thank you, Ute! I love hearing of such read-alouds to groups of children. I’m developing ideas for new characters (hopefully for future stories) and am having concept illustrations of them created. I plan to soon begin featuring the illustrations at Clyde and Friends: http://clydeandfriends.com.
