Take one very extroverted and bright little girl, add a grumpy old grandpa and you have the most interesting matchup since Paper Moon. Chloe Christine Townley was born November 10, 2005 and went to live with grandpa at age three and a half after being lost and retrieved far from home. It was not an easy mix - two strong personalities in one small space - but over the period of about 500 days they worked it out and are now well-known all over New York City and in several southern states.
This is a celebration of Chloe, the adversity she faced and her development from baby to young lady. Ask her about anything, she has an opinion about it and isn't afraid to tell you whether on the subway, the street or in school. She likes the Disney princesses, but thinks they are a bit too wimpy and need to have light sabres like in Star Wars.
Chloe is learning to read and write in kindergarten. She also cooks, folds laundry, does dishes and sometimes cleans. She currently lives with her grandpa, "papa," in Manhattan. Even though she's just five, she can tell you all the subways to get from uptown to the Toys R Us in Times Square.
