Almost two years after my last book, I’m excited to announce that I have a new release! I’m launching into the territory of a different genre with this one: children’s fairy tale retelling. And what’s more, it’s illustrated. Illustrated! I always dreamed of authoring an illustrated book. The incredibly talented E. Kaiser Writes did the artwork for both the cover and the interior.
Once upon a time…
the donkey is getting old, but he works hard on his farm—until the day
Herr Hoffman decides he is no longer worth keeping. With no choice but
to escape, Etzel sets off on the road to Bremen to seek his fortune as a
musician. On the way, he rescues three other animals—a dog, a cat, and a
rooster—who are also old and destined for death.
Will these four new friends find their success and worth as musicians in Bremen? Or does the road hold something better?
What readers are saying:
fun, with a lovable cast of unforgettable animals! A marvelous
retelling of ‘The Bremen Town Musicians.'” – Rebekah Stargazer, Writer
“Utterly charming! A tale full of heart.” – Deborah O’Carroll, Writer and Blogger
“Kelsey Bryant’s storytelling skills freshened and bolstered this inspiring tale.” – Grant P. Ferguson, Author of Cliftopolis SERIES
Stay tuned for more fun details and tidbits in the coming weeks. I’ll have tales to tell about my inspirations and how I wrote this book, as well as an interview with my wonderful illustrator.
