Dear Children and Their Grownups,

Two of my people have created a book just for you--readers who long for a story of a different sort. In our tale there are no dragons for heroes to slay, or worlds for wizards to save. It's simply the story of how my pack and I came to realize we needed a school for all the animals on our farm who wanted to learn and teach from those great books of knowledge passed down to us through... Oh, sorry! Marica says I run on sometimes. Back to our story. Mighty were the challenges we faced! It's not easy starting a school. But in the end, teamwork, perseverance, and creative thinking paid off.

I know you'll love our story! We are an entertaining pack, and with our people, an endearing family. But I must warn you. Though Marica wants you to make new friends and enjoy our little adventures, she also wants you to learn a few things. You may have never heard of some of these, so she explains them along the way.

I wish I could tell you more, but I must get back to that lesson plan for The Jungle Book. It's not writing itself, you know. See you inside!

Love, Missy

About the Author

Marica lives with her husband, John Bickle, their two dogs, two cats, one donkey, and one not especially bright sheep on a farm in Mississippi. Like Missy and her pack--including Tiger the Cat--Marica and John love to learn. Marica's favorite subjects are reading, writing, and arithmetic, biology, meteorology, and statistics, and history, literature, and the classics. (John's favorite are philosophy and neuroscience.) Marica collects old books on all these subjects and more, but she loves old children's books the most. Like Mrs. E.M. Field, author of The Child and His Book (1891), Marica doesn't believe that "instruction, if admitted into a story-book at all, must be scrupulously veiled and cloaked." Marica thinks story-books are great places to learn!
