Little mice did build a house in Ellie's old car, and the woodchuck did destroy her entire garden. And then it was certainly fun to name Maggie Magoo and come home to a tea party! Also, it was both satisfying and wonderful to knit scarves for the poor for the holidays! So I hope these stories bring you as much pleasure as the ones I enjoyed over and over as a child.
Ellen co-illustrated this book with Amber Jones. Doing so provided a unique experience for Ellen because, after envisioning what she wanted the picture to look like, she got to add life and color to the drawings that Amber provided.
