About the author:
“Nutmeg B” (now a young adult) wrote this story when she was a 10-year-old home-learning student. Her book project began by taking photos of her favourite stuffed-animal friends at her favourite spots in Victoria. She then arranged the photos in a blank book and wrote the captions to create a story.  The quirky humour comes from the influence of her comedy tale-telling father. In addition, being the youngest in a large family meant that a sense of the absurd became a necessary norm.
