In second grade my son Daniel had an assignment, to write and illustrate a story. He was worried about it so we went to the North Carolina Zoo for inspiration. Daniel wanted to photograph the animals and borrowed Dad’s phone. At the alligators’ habitat, he leaned in to get a good picture and dropped the phone. He was devastated. We tried to comfort him and joke about what was happening in the alligator habitat. Lumley’s Lucky Day was born. Mom spent some time revising and creating illustrations in Adobe Photoshop and after a few years, Lumley’s Lucky Day has been published on Kindle. Please take a look and enjoy it!
