This is a children’s book that my sister a me are working on. The character’s are named after the nicknames that we gave our nieces and nephews. I hope you enjoy it. I will try to post more as we get it written.
It was a normal day within the woods of Foxglove, where the animals are friendly, except for the spunky squirrel named Shorty. We have Doe the moose, Emmykins the chipmunk, Hoss the raven, Munchkin the rabbit and Elmo the bear. These six watch over foxglove and try to keep the peace alive within the forest. On this very normal day the animals were happily playing along, but little did they know something very troublesome was about to stir within the peaceful dwellings that they call their home.
As the birds take flight and the screeching tires break the silence within the distance, these six friends run to find what had made this sound, as they approach Elmwood Way they noticed a large rusted white truck pulled off to the side of the tracks. Two men exited the vehicle and head towards the back. Elmo started to talk, when Shorty jumped on him and held her hand over his mouth and shushed him. They all watched as the men open the back doors and reached in to grab a dark brown barrel that did show its age upon it. They placed it down behind a couple of bushes and they went back rustling into the truck. A yellow folder and glasses fell from the truck as the passenger rustled his way back into his seat. When the truck made its way into the distance that is when the friends realized something wasn’t right about this barrel for the grass underneath it was starting to wilt.
Doe looked at Hoss and asked “What was that?”, and Hoss being the oldest of them all they figured he probably would have seen something similar to this before.
“Hmm, it looks like they left something behind maybe I should go on up and see what it is that fell out.” said Hoss.
