A note From John & Katie:
Zoey and Ketchup began as bedtime stories John told to Katie when she was three. It wasn't long after adopting our dog, Sky, that Katie quickly began adding her own ideas to the stories.
When Katie's younger brother Jack was born, we added "Zack." Don't be surprised if Zoey gets another sibling, if youngest brother Will has any say about it. We hope you like this book, and can't wait to tell you more adventures of the little girl with a big imagination, and the dog with a ketchup-colored tip on his tail.
