Marietta Camps had always told her stories to her son and daughter but until now she had never written them down. As a grandmother, Marietta has a legacy of stories to share and her life experiences are evident throughout. Marietta has lived in Holland, Indonesia, India, and Canada and she has traveled extensively. Her love of nature and her ability to use her unique voice as character endear listeners, her children, her grandchildren and now, through her first book... children everywhere. There are four more books in the works! These stories are imaginative and educational. They are beautifully illustrated to capture the imagination of readers and listeners.
"I look at Dandelions in a whole new light." "This story is a new take on an old story about the most misunderstood flower in North America.""I can hear the voice of the writer, it is warm and familiar...my aunt, my mother..." "beautifully illustrated in an unconventional style using florescent underpainting.""I had no idea about how dandelions grow and propagate, not to mention all the different uses for every part of the plant."
