Read-aloud to Grow On
About the Book
Unlike other books classified by age as juvenile or adult we choose to think grandparents enjoy the same stories as preschoolers, and pre-teens can be fascinated by a textbook a parent brings home from an evening class. At least, this is the author’s experience.
Why not a book then, free of bias and classifications—with stories slanted to a number of “age levels” and interests? Select your favorites to re-read. Perhaps another will grasp your attention more fully later.
About the Author
Anne Louise Grimm spoke no English when starting First Grade at
The first book Anne owned, and long time favorite, was Andersen’s Fairy Tales. She used it learning to read English. Teased about the name Grimm, Anne began writing at an early age, but not fiction. After high school graduation she lived four years in
While early published work was not fiction, her typewritten stories accumulated on shelves and in drawers. Some of them more strange and weird than anything Hans Christian Andersen ever wrote. Later they took on a further life of their own and began sneaking into manuscript files of one computer after another.
Anne’s fourth book, published by AuthorHouse in 2006 as Fletter Cove, snared some for adults. A second aggregation has been made for Hush . . . Listen! Alas, that still has only thinned and not eliminated the short fiction. More of the stuff still sneaks periodically—overnight it seems—unheralded onto the hard drive of the current computer. firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.willapabay.org/~anne/annepers.htm
