The Waddodles of Hollow Lake
The Mighty OakBook - 2009
My husband died the day after Christmas, leaving four children, ages two to nine. Anxious how we would manage without him, too young to understand, my children asked, "Why my daddy?" I couldn't find any material to help them, so I decided to write one. While vacationing at my brother's lake cabin, in Michigan 's northern woods, we watched a mother raccoon and her babies feeding daily at the stump outside our kitchen window when the idea came to write my stories through the eyes of animals. The first book in The Waddodles of Hollow Lake series, Law of the Woodland , is built on family values, tales of courage, love, hope and trust in each other. The second series book, The Waddodles of Hollow Lake: Calamity on East Bay features more exciting adventures with The Waddodles and their friends, highlighting many episodes with their enemies. Journey to the West Shore fmds the family sad about leaving their den, but excited about their new adventure. On their way, the Waddodles journey through the fragrant Pine Forest, the mysterious Cedar Swamp; the beautiful Grassy Meadow, then onto West Shore where they move into their hollow in a magnificent tree, The Mighty Oak. The happy family looks forward to their first day in their new home, and meeting their interesting new neighbors. In The Mighty Oak, the family adjusts to their new environment and friends; experiencing living next door to the mystifying human Lawrence Family, Hubbard Great-Homed Owl, Rosie Skunk, and Dulcie Porcupine and the nemesis's The Beauties', Charmaine Crest Robin and Melody Mom Bluebird. The Waddodles experience lots of activity as they build new relationships. Harriet meets a new beau, Tobias Trottleby. Plans are underway for the Ruffed Grouse Courtship Ceremony and The Birds Beauty Contest.
