"Once upon a time there was a little boy named Jeremy who lived with his mother in a small house near the sea. His mother earned a bare living for the two of them by washing clothes for some of the wealthy families in their town. Jeremy loved her very much". So begins the enchanting fairy tale President Jimmy Carter first spun for his children over three decades ago. Now, with his first children's book, he brings his family's favorite story to vivid life. Graced by the vibrant pastels of daughter Amy, this imaginative tale of courage will inspire and delight readers young and old.
Fresh from the success of his highly praised volume of poetry, Always a Reckoning, former president Jimmy Carter now pens his first children's book, illustrated by his daughter Amy. Young Jeremy, who cannot walk, is abandoned at the seashore one day when the others flee at the sight of a terrifying sea monster. With no choice but to face this horror, Jeremy is surprised to discover a kindred spirit in the little baby Snoogle-Fleejer. (All Ages)
