In the Tradition of Shel Silverstein & Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

Meggi Beth carries a heavy story strapped to her shoulders. In the style of Shel Silverstein and Mister Roger's Neighborhood, young Meggi Beth's experience is drawn with a brilliant marriage of words and artistry. She encounters several passersby whom she tries to engage with her story. Everyone seems either too busy or too weighed down by their own stories to spend any time with Meggi Beth. Guess who comes along to listen with big furry ears and a nuzzling nose? Adorable and full of whimsy, this book is artistically designed by award winning artist, Brianna Osaseri.
