ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR: Susan Nipp as been publishing for over 30 years as the co-author of the popular Wee Sing series of musical books, CD’s and videos. Over 70 Wee Sing titles have been created and over 50 million products have been sold worldwide. With this background, she thought it was time to write a non-musical book for her home town.
The Mudgy and Millie characters were inspired as Susan hiked through forest near her home overlooking Lake Coeur d’Alene. “We often see moose on our hill, so Mudgy was a natural,” Nipp said, explaining the characters’ genesis. “I envisioned his playmate as a skunk or a porcupine, but then decided that it should be an animal opposite in size with the moose and Millie Mouse was born.”
Mudgy & Millie is a beautifully illustrated masterpiece by Charles Reasoner who has created and illustrated over 400 children’s books during his 30 ear career. The book is being published by Eastern Washington University Press and will be on sale September 13th, 2008.
