Thelonious Beaver is a day-dreamer. While his family is busy building a new dam, Thelonious creates something else. What is it, you ask? Well, you'll just have to buy the book now, won't you? (At this point I think you'll all agree that it's a darn good thing I don't write book jacket blurbs.) My friend Janie Bynum illustrated this. I had her illustrations in mind as I wrote the story, so I was extremely happy when she said she could do it. Aside from Emerson, Thelonious is by far the cutest creature on the face of the planet.
