Whistle Beans is the second book in the SugarPaw Adventure series from Award-winning Author VS Grenier. The first book, Babysitting SugarPaw is a Silver Mom's Choice and 2011 Silver Quill Award-winner.
The artwork found inside the series is done by Illustrator and Animator Kevin Scott Collier.
BEHIND THE STORY -
The concepts for the books in the SugarPaw Adventure series are from Author VS Grenier's personal life.
When Grenier was little, she couldn't whistle. A family friend, Charlie Baker, was one of the best whistlers and she wanted to have a strong whistle like his. Grenier practiced everyday...but never got much out beyond the WHOOSHING sound of air passing her lips.
It was the holidays when Charlie shared his secret to a strong whistle with her over a big Christmas Dinner at her family's house. A memory VS Grenier cherishes to this day!
SugarPaw will share this secret with young readers all over the world in his second children's book adventure, which is also dedicated to the loving memory of Charlie Baker!
The KickStarter campaign is to raise the funds to get the book printed. It ends in 30 days! If we fall short of our goal, we don't get any of the funding & have to start over.
We wanted to make this affordable for all budges so we have a Shout-out Pledge (which posts on http://SugarPaw.blogspot.com, SugarPaw's Fan page and more) - these will be for any one who pledges $5 or more to the campaign! It will be updated as we go along.
If you haven't had a chance to check it out our KickStarter page, please do! Besides offering the books, we also have some fun stuff starting with $10 pledges!
