I love this review Jennifer Franklin gave of my book, Mr. Mailbox Man Goes to Work!


'Mr. Mailbox Man' is a gift for any child, from newborn to elementary-school age. The story is highly imaginative and relies on fantastically detailed pictures to convey the story, forming a bridge of understanding between our physical world and our imaginary nature. This story lends itself to rich vocabulary development by allowing the child to become the storyteller. 'Mr. Mailbox Man' is filled with charm and fun while feeding young reader's minds with adventure and fostering their budding creativity.


Jennifer has a masters in education. She teaches and paints magical things.

Back in 2003, we were in school together. She made these beautiful shadow box worlds when we had a show at Gallery 1010 together! I love them so much. Thank you, Jennifer, for years of advice, inspiration and friendship.

This book was inspired by many things and very dear to my heart. My love for letter writing, my niece, Piper Jane, and my love for Mr. Mailbox Man (who I've been painting for years). My hope is that this book will inspire letter writing, storytelling and responsibility in all of you!
