Hi, and thanks for visiting. I began writing poems in the fourth grade. (Thank you, Mrs. Konnors!) So when Lexi came galloping into my life a few years back, I knew enough to copy down her musings. Then one by one, the rest of the gang showed up. Turns out they all have a lot to say—and they surprise me all the time. Being their personal assistant is my favorite job in the world, and every day they bring lots of fun and joy to me.

I hope they bring lots of fun and joy to you!

P.S. Thank you, Deborah Zemke, for your marvelous illustrations.
