REVIEW by LAWonder10:
Begin this Holiday Season with Chipper Makes Merry. It is a cute story of Chippers various ways of spreading cheer within his animal habitat!
Kim Sponangle, did a marvelous job in creating the scenes that depicted the tale. They are charming, colorful and simple. .. Even the writing is a form of art.
The only negative I find, is the rhyminh does not always rhyme well which throws off the rhythm and timing. It prevents a smooth flow in her writing
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating

Incorporating favorites into my book
Everyone has favorite things— favorite colors, animals, books, music, foods, and the list can go on and on. When writing Chipper Makes Merry, I wanted to incorporate my favorites into my writing in places other than the dedication. Of course, the dedication is all about my favorite people, who are the most important favorites of all. But the hidden favorites were fun to find places for and I enjoyed weaving them in. Gus the Walrus was the easiest character to name. I love the name GUS. I wanted it for one of our dogs, but the family vetoed it. But since it’s my book, I didn’t have to deal with vetoes. Win for me! Speaking of my family, I did include a tribute within illustrations to my cute hubby with a tree carving and to my kids with their initials on some steppingstones. It might have taken them a few passes through the book before they noticed! There is also a little red bird who appears throughout the book, who is a signal to my dad who loves cardinals. I am an AVID coffee lover, so no “winter” celebration was complete in my mind without a “cup of steamy joe”! In addition, the characters party with maple cake, which is a family favorite and our top donut flavor of the house. Writing is so personal, and I found it fun to give away little nuggets about myself along the way!
Meet the Author:
Morgan is a fun wife, and imperfect mom of 3 crazy kiddos and 2 little lemon (problematic) dogs. She tries to live her strengths the best she can. She likes to say she is creative, not crafty. Morgan is a homemade Halloween costume type of mom. She lets her kids mix the play doh. She bakes fun birthday cakes (cutely, but far from perfection). She loves a homemade valentine and a school project. Chipper the Fox is an extension of Morgan's creative strength. Originally designed as character to create merry during the holiday season, Chipper has grown and developed into a story of determination and love.
