Sunny’s Bouncing Path of Destruction


That little rascal Sunny is at it again. The poor Grumpadinkles don’t stand a chance with the energetic puppy around. The illustrations by Jack Wiens above and the excerpts below are from my latest children’s picture book project, Sunny Saves the Day.

Grumbly tried to grab him,

but missed him instead.

He slipped on some milk

and fell on his head.

While he lay

dazed on the floor

with a lump on his head

that was really sore,

the pup dumped white flour

on the clothes Grumbly wore!


Sunny found pots and pans on a door.

He banged and clanged them, then banged them some more.

Sunny tugged on an apron so hard that it tore.

The pup never tired and found more to explore.


With Love,
