Meet the Author

Patricia A. McMillan draws on her extensive experience as first grade teacher, story writer and dachshund-owner to write this Easter bunny tale. The character of Shorty Longfellow was created in order to help young children deal with name-calling and teasing. This little dog's positive self-image is something the author wants those children to copy-cat.
