Illustrations from a Tyler-area artist are featured in a new children’s book.
“‘Pet Fairy’ lets the child’s imagination soar,” Ms. Joy said in the release. “It lets them enjoy something that is familiar to them as a puppy and adds a fairytale aspect to his adventures. It also fosters the importance of ending their busy day on their knees in prayer. It is a simple book that has a deep meaning that will engage the child through the poetic sing/song tempo and keep their attention with art work that captures the reading.”
