She is thrilled to have her words translated into the beautiful artwork created by her dear friend Mary Ann Tully. "Prairie Girl's Song" is dedicated to Kate's niece, Karen Ferris, who grew up on the very same farm, dreamed in the very same bedroom, and who - regardless of where she may live - will always be a Prairie Girl.Go to Kate Ferris' website (www.kateferris.ca) to hear Kate singing "Prairie Girl's Song".About the IllustratorMary Ann Tully is an artist and teacher who loves sharing art and picture books with children.
