Overview

The towns of Oldwick and Quimby were constantly feuding. But Quimby had one thing that Oldwick didn't: a warthog for their zoo. The Mayor of Quimby couldn't let this situation continue, and ordered a warthog from Africa. This is the delightful story of how a warthog named Allegra brought the citizens of both towns together with A Kiss for a Warthog.

About the Author:

Having raised seven children and entertained seventeen grandchildren, Wende and Harry Devlin have developed an unique knack for storytelling. Starting with the Old Black Witch and continuing through the extended Cranberry series (Cranberry Thanksgiving and others), the Devlin's have worked together to produce a remarkable series of children's tales. Their stories combine enjoyable illustrations with a captivating tale and millions of parents have concluded their child's day with one of the Devlin's thirty separate books.

A Kiss For A Warthog reflects Wende Devlin's deft touch for developing a heartwarming story. A member of the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame, Wende has crafted the couple's stories for the past thirty-five years. Wende has frequently drawn on the lives and experiences of her own children to fill her tales with details common to the lives of most children and adults (no matter how fantastic the rest of the story may be).

Harry Devlin's illustrations display an expansive talent. Harry originally worked as an editorial cartoonist for Collier's Weekly for more than ten years and developed a reputation for excellence that resulted in his election as president of the National Cartoonists Society and, later, as its honorary chairman. He has designed six different stamps for the U.S. Postal Service and his lifelong interest in architecture has produced three architectural books. Harry is also a member of the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame, as well as a member of the state's Advertising Hall of Fame.

The Devlins have lived in Mountainside, New Jersey for over forty years and recently celebrated their fifty-eighth wedding anniversary.

If the warthog destined for the Oldwick zoo had not had a mind of her own, the rival towns of Oldwick and Quimby might never have become friends.
