About the Book

You’re invited to tag along with a precocious girl named Gracie and her dog, Sniggles, as they embark on a whimsical adventure, and meet new friends. They have moved out of the city and into the suburbs. When they arrive, they set out to explore their new surroundings. They meet a crow named Bob, Lucy the cat, Ziggy the squirrel, and Bumble a wee little bee who has somehow been painted blue. Bumble is sad because the queen bee will not allow him back into the hive because he is not yellow, like his fellows. The new friends set out together, following clues to figure out how Bumble was covered in blue goo, and what they can do to help him. Gracie and her friends remind us of the importance of kindness, acceptance and friendship. This beautifully illustrated children’s book is timely, when our world seems so divided. Young readers will enjoy the fun that the new friends have together, and the characters they meet along the way. Parents will appreciate the valuable message it offers about tolerance and compassion. It’s a fun read for adults and children alike.

About the Author

Teressa Hill grew up in Oregon. She spent much of her time outside riding her horse Tiffany with her dog Luke trailing behind. When she wasn’t spending time outside with her beloved animals and nature, she trained as a competitive figure skater and traveled extensively. During her downtime from training, she wrote short stories and poetry. She also loved to sketch and later became an accomplished painter and sold several of her paintings. After Teressa’s competitive figure skating career she transitioned into her career as a film and television Hairstylist. That is when she began writing screenplays. In 2005 she wrote a children’s animated series which she has now developed into “The Wildly Whimsical Tales of Gracie and Sniggles” a series of children’s books. Her constant inspirations are her many furry companions she has been grateful to know throughout her life.
