Unwrapping Some Illustrations for you
This delightful rhyming book is from the "It's Just So" book series. Lizzy is bored with her gray, overcast, soon-to-be rainy day and she proceeds finding imaginative fun ways to fill that boredom.
She and her adorable pup start with an indoor sport, then after that idea ends up in an "oopsie" she progresses to create magic with her musical instruments. Outside she goes and there discovers a box of kittens for sale. They are a bargain. They are being sold for the fantastic price of one dollar each. Lizzy buys the whole litter. What a deal! She decides to set up a little booth to find loving homes for each one of them and has success doing so.
Not far away she hears loud thumping and clanking. Whatever is making all the racket? She soon finds the source of all the noise. A new girl her age, named Luna, is moving into her neighbourhood. Together they play and enjoy each other's company throughout the day. Their fast friendship turns a blah, rainy day into a rainbow one! The illustrations are lovely, full of expression and animation. I highly recommend this book.

Meet the Author
Brenda Faatz has an undeniable connection with children. Some say it’s because they instinctively know “one of their own.” A graduate of The University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Musical Theatre, Brenda is a professional singer, dancer, and actor. Along with her husband, Peter Trimarco, she wrote the music, lyrics, and script for the original Wee Noteables musical theatre live performance series for children.
About the Illustrator
Peter Trimarco was a fine arts student who graduated from Lake Forest College with a degree in literature and went on to pursue a career as an editorial cartoonist…but drawing ‘grownups’ stopped being fun. Before being inspired by the opportunity to co-write and illustrate a children’s book with Brenda, he journeyed through life as an entertainment industry professional. From art director to executive producer to publisher of an international film magazine, he found a good deal of success before turning his efforts to creating books for children.
