Copies are available in the Children’s Department of the North Bay Public Library.
Martha Attema is a retired teacher and children’s author. She has had six (6) novels published for readers 5 to 16. She loves horses and strongly believes that carousel horses are magical.
Skye Hillard is an artist from North Bay, Ontario. Skye has been drawing as long as she can remember, but she has a passion for storytelling, which led her to become a professional illustrator.
