Back cover blurb

Dear Children and Their Grownups,

Two of my people have created a book just for you— readers who long for a story of a different sort. In our tale there are no dragons for heroes to slay, or worlds for wizards to save. It’s simply the story of how my pack and I came to realize we needed a school for all the animals on our farm who wanted to learn and teach from those great books of knowledge passed down to us through… Oh, sorry! Marica says I run on sometimes. Back to our story. Mighty were the challenges we faced! It’s not easy starting a school. But in the end, teamwork, perseverance, and creative thinking paid off.

I know you’ll love our story! We are an entertaining pack, and with our people, an endearing family. But I must warn you. Though Marica wants you to make new friends and enjoy our little adventures, she also wants you to learn a few things. You may have never heard of some of these, so she explains them along the way.

I wish I could tell you more, but I must get back to that lesson plan for The Jungle Book. It’s not writing itself, you know. See you inside!
