Cleveland the Green Camel

At last, Cleveland the Green Camel came out one week ago today. We endured windy weather at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Marshfield and had a good time. But the weather turned ugly on Sunday and Monday while I was at the Baker Creek Spring Festival near Mansfield.  Cleveland and I visited Halfway Elementary yesterday and have three schools to visit next week. I love visiting with the kids. Yesterday, one of the little girls said, "You interviewed my daddy."  Luckily I remembered him. That is one of the great things about also writing non-fiction. I never know when I'm going to run into one of my subjects.


  1. Congratulations Brenda! Are you working on another one? Same illustrator or are you learning how to illustrate, lady of many talents?

  2. Chuckle, chuckle. My how I wish I could draw well enough to illustrate, but I used the same illustrator as the last book.
    See you in a couple of weeks.

  3. Adorable book, Brenda--I've been eagerly awaiting my first view. Thanks for bringing my copy to ORA. Delightful story. I guess you're already working on a third one? You're a lady of many talents.

  4. Yes, I have the rough draft of the third one. But I want to market this one first. I'm so glad you like it. Thanks.

  5. Brenda, This is Len Hart (Niangua, Missouri). I am also an author and also have books at the Library. I have a writing project that I need to talk to you about. Most of my books are religious and some have been poem books. I have commited myself to write a childrens book for a Headstart class. Please give me a call (City Hall has my number).
    ps. I am a West Ward City Alderman

    1. I did get the book done for the Headstart Children and they loved it.
