Overview

Get going, try it, surprise yourself, be brave; what's the worst that could happen? Maybe you'll fail, maybe you'll learn, maybe you'll laugh so hard it hurts! No matter what happens, the worst thing that could happen is that it's too late.

Will It is a story of bravery, courage, and the power we all have within us to overcome our greatest fears and doubts. Like all of the stories in the Gnat & Corky Series, Will It is based on the spirit of a real kid. Will has Bardet-Biedl syndrome which causes retinal degeneration and may eventually render him blind. That does not define Will or prevent him from doing anything he dreams. His attitude and outlook on life are unstoppable.

We can all learn a lesson from Will It to face the world as we are, with a brave heart, bold spirit, and wicked sense of humor.

About the Author

A child who will go blind. A big sister who is a light catcher for her special needs brother. An actor who loves to speak in puns. A boy from the Philippines who started the Happy Animals Club. A little girl who loves to paint the dreams in her head; these are the kids that are honored in the Gnat & Corky Series, and each story holds a metaphor, meaning and place inside the heart of universality.

Gnat & Corky are an author/illustrator duo who have created a 16-book series that is based on the spirit of real kids. Author, Courtney Kotloski, interviews children and finds the metaphor of their spirit, while illustrator, Natalie Sorrentino brings their story to life with paint. Each story holds a universal metaphor brought forth with powerful and whimsical illustrations that are hand drawn and painted with watercolor. The Gnat & Corky Series is a collection of universal stories that bring light, laughter, understanding, beauty, and joy to the world.

Natalie picked up her first paintbrush when she was three and she has not stopped painting since. Natalie is a watercolor artist, art therapist, and commissioned artist. She lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her husband and their two children. She has a collection of cards, patterns, and paintings available for purchase on her site, www.nataliesorrentino.com. Natalie is nervous, kind, and silly-and she likes to dream a lot.
