Though a short book in which humans play no part, it’s not just for kids. See what you think.
The efts (a type of salamander) tell their own story, which is a mixture of fantasy and natural history. It's also a love story of two efts that have very different approaches to the world.
This book is illustrated by a wonderful Central NYS artist.
My story-telling began, like most people's, from the stories I spun for myself. A natural extension was to tell them to my sister (15 mos younger). At her urging I began to write them out, and still more stories came to me. My greatest hope for them is that they be read and people get the kind of pleasure I have always gotten from reading others' stories.
