Willie the Pencil Neck Pooch By: Kaye Henry
Kaye Henry is the author of Willie the Pencil Neck Pooch. She retired from public school teaching after 28 years, and now teaches adult ESL part-time. Henry and her family took in over 50 lost animals over the years, including ducks, pigs, horses, dogs and cats. Their life spans ranged 10-33 years. Every one of them who appeared on the Henrys’ doorstep were welcomed with open arms, and never had to worry about their next meal, or where they would sleep.
Willie had a special personality and was loved and accepted immediately. He was a funny little dog, and a joy to add to the family.
Ms. Henry still has 3 cats, 2 dogs, and 6 ducks and 10 chickens. The ducks come to the front door of her home every afternoon and quack to be fed. They get corn, but also a mix of salad greens, cantaloupe, watermelon, grapes, and their favorite, English peas.
Willie is Ms. Henry’s first published book, with other Willie adventures to follow.
Order forms will be sent home for students to order books for the event. Author will gladly sign any book that is sold. Each child that buys a book will receive a “Willie” pencil Cost of the book is $15. It has 62 pages and colored pictures, and is best suited for grades 2-5. We look forward to an amazing Everyone Reads Day on March 3rd, 2017.
