Meet the Author

Author Linda Black grew up in Curtis, Arkansas as the fourth of twelve children. She received her early education via a one-room schoolhouse and in many ways it was a blessing, as it exposed her to varying levels of education.

Linda developed a love of writing early in her young life. At the tender age of 10, she wrote her first song. It was promptly sent off to Nashville to be set to music and even though it was not published, Linda never lost sight of her love for writing.

After graduating high school in Chicago, Illinois - Linda relocated to Lansing, Michigan where she found employment with the General Motors corporation. She was a faithful employee for over thirty years. While in Lansing, she chose Lansing Community College as her institution of higher learning. She was recommended for honors writing courses and became a valued member of the poetry club.

Linda and her husband Richard are proud to call six children, nine grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren ... family. Together they reside in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas with two of their grandsons. Linda is an avid member of the Village Writer's Club and works as a 911 operator at her local police station. She continues to write and still considers children to be her purest inspiration..

    Boots is an almost entirely white cat. Only his feet are black and they look like he's wearing a pair of boots. But 
    Boots doesn't  like his black feet. He thinks they are ugly. Boots asks his best friends, Buck, Roscoe and Sunshine to 
    help him build a snowman during a storm. But his pals say it's too cold for that so Boots stubbornly decides to
    make the snowman himself. But then something terrible happens and Boots is lost. His friends search high and low 
    for him. They even check if he fell into the water. You'll be surprised at what happens next. This book teaches a
    valuable  lesson. Children, teachers, and parents will enjoy it. They will also love the large, life-like illustrations. I
    highly recommend this remarkable book!

    Beautiful lively illustrations grace this sweet children┬┐s story

    Beautiful lively illustrations grace this sweet children’s story. There’s a lovely three-dimensional feel to snowballs, trees, and the faces of animals as Boots the cat tries to build a snowman on his own, only to fall prey to a passing snow plough and the snowballs in its wake.

    While the story might be slightly confusing for a beginning reader, the pictures will inspire fun questions and answers as a wonderful cast of characters search for their friend. The lesson’s wise and gently told with a well-timed reminder to count our blessings and thank God for his gifts.

    A lovely book to share with small children as the snow falls outside, The Adventure of Boots and the Giant Snowball is just the right length, with the right collection of pictures and just the right details to intrigue, teach and inspire.



    Disclosure: I was lucky enough to get this ebook when it was free.

    Great read for kids. Check it out!

    The children's picture book, "The Adventures of Boots: The Giant Snowball", written by Linda Black and illustrated by Masha Holl is a fun wintertime romp.

    The main character is a white cat named Boots who hates the black markings on his feet that gave him his name. He thinks they are ugly, even though everyone else tells him otherwise. However, just when Boots is the most irritated with his black "socks", he finds that they just might be useful after all. In fact, they may be the most important feature he has been given.

    There are several themes throughout this story, including self-acceptance, friendship, teamwork, appreciation and faith. The story is not at all preachy or boring, but it does manage to pass along the importance of these character traits. The story isn't overly religious, but it does mention God and encourages kids to count their blessings and give thanks for them. In many ways this story reminded me of the classic stories I grew up with that were full of faith and morality. In no way is this a bad thing, in fact, I often miss seeing these qualities in the children's literature that is produced today.

    As for the illustrations, they just may be the best part of the story. The artist did a fine job of depicting the events happening in the story and created characters that children will immediately identify with. The artistic style is very unusual for a picture book. It is almost three-dimensional and has an animated feel to it. In fact, when I looked through the illustrations, the first thought that came to mind was that the artwork was impressive enough to hold its own against much of the animation you see on tv or in movies. Undoubtedly, this artist has a great career ahead of her.

    Over all, this book is fun, meaningful and of very good quality.
