James and the Naughty Seagull
This delightful children’s book was written and illustrated by Lynne Pickering, who says, “We owned a childcare center for nine years and there were some children with behavioral problems. I often found if manners and examples of good Samaritan deeds were explained in a story concerning animals, the children often took notice and an improvement could be seen in them. If stories are told in a humorous and enjoyable tale, it gets through to them in a childlike way.”
She adds, “ I love painting, and it was enjoyable to paint this cute little shaggy bear and his adventures with this naughty seagull. The characters took a life of their own once I painted them.”
Her other children’s book to be published include James and the Greedy Naughty Seagull, James and the Jealous Naughty Seagull, Is It You? and The Magic Doorway (a fairy story).
