Although she was very sick when she came into this world, Frances was able to overcome her illness, travel to different places, and make many friends. This book is just the beginning of A Little Dachshund's Tale, as told by Frances and some of the people she encounters along the way. Look for more stories to come about this beloved little dog!
The author grew up in New Bedford, Massachusetts, which happens to be the neighboring town where this delightful children's story begins. April Jean spent her summers on the island of Nantucket, a setting for future stories.
First-time author April Jean is a former teacher who now runs a pet-sitting service in Manhattan. "Quite simply, Frances inspired me to write this book. She brought so much joy to me and my family I just wanted to share her story. I have three other completed books: a counting book, a short story about a beekeeper who lives in Brooklyn, and a story about a pig named Higgilty Piggilty, who gathers an unlikely group of friends together for a Thanksgiving meal. I also have several other books in the works in addition to the follow-up book about Frances in the Little Dachshund's series."
