Synopsis:

     Party today, far away ... Sam finds a great deal to sing about as he echoes "the chat" on the way to visit a majestic forest friend in GRAN, GRAN, GRANNY
      Lizzie tells this moment-in-time story as she, two brothers, and her parents hike up the well-worn trail to visit one grand old Douglas fir tree known as Granny. 
     The forest is aflame with fall color and the path is carpeted with fall leaf confetti on the day following a fierce and worrisome storm. A celebration cake swings along in mom's traveling basket as Lizzie, Nick, and Sam lead the way. 
      Lace up your hiking books, get set to catch a swirling fall leaf, and head up the path to celebrate a very grand old tree.

     Rae makes her home in the great Pacific Northwest where she roams through magnificent forests and along treasure lined seashores. 
     Children's books are the center of her creative life both in her studio and as a librarian. The magic of stories, information, and illustration make every day with books filled with possibility. 
      A constant source of inspiration and support come from her long-standing Pens and Paint critique group, her family and SCBWI. 
     For Rae, a good day is a creative day whether it be working out the bones of a new story, digging around in the garden, or playing with art. Her doodle dog, Ben, leads the way on daily outdoor expeditions, and her bicycle is a creativity generator in disguise. Rae's story file is reaching epic proportions. 
     Rae is also the author of A FISHING SURPRISE illustrated by Kathleen Kemly. "...Sunny day...laze and play... toss the line...it's fishing time!"
