A Tale Of A Cupcake

Meet Suga’!

Today, you get to meet our friend, Suga’. She’s straight out of the cookie jar and loves to have company. If you’ve got problems, she’ll be the first to lend you an ear and give a crumb of advice.

Well, howdy-do, y’all! I am so excited you’re here!

If you’ve got some time, you should pull up a chair and have a chat with me and my friends. I hear you’ve already met my good friends Milk and Preston. I remember when Preston came to me, just a wee little cake and now he’s really come into his own.

Oh. That’s all the time you have for me today? Well, come back tomorrow and meet some more of my friends!

Meet our friend, Milk!

Meet Milk! He’s a little gruff on the outside, but he warms up quickly. They say milk and sweets go hand-in-hand. Well, maybe that’s why Milk has such a sweet tooth. Milk is the protector of the fridge.

Hello! Where are those brownies you promised me? Oh, thanks. I kind of thought it was a trick when I saw the note saying to meet here for brownies.

Oh, no! Are you going to make me talk to all these people? Don’t even think … mmm … these brownies sure are good.

OK—I can tell you a morsel. Preston is on a journey and he meets some friends along the way. I’m the guy who shows him his way through the fridge. Speaking of fridge—it’s getting warm in here, so I better get back there before my mood turns sour.

Twitter a-go Little Cakes!

Isn’t he just the cutest?

Stories start in the heart

We believe everyone has a story in their heart that needs to be told.

Every time we tell someone about our book, they say, “Hey, why don’t you write a book about …”

Sometimes it seems the world doesn’t have time to read. But I’ve never met a toddler who didn’t want to curl up on someone’s lap and be read a story. Do children ever say, “I’m just to busy for a story tonight, Dad.”? I haven’t seen it. But I have seen it the other way around.

Stories are important to everyone. It’s how we learn morals and lessons. Remember “The Ugly Ducking” who became a swan? The book tells us it’s OK to be different, because some day—perhaps around college—your differences will make you stand out from the crowd and it will finally be a good thing.

And then there’s the “Three Little Pigs” that reminds everyone of the age-old idea of don’t build your house on sand. If you construct a strong house of bricks instead of straw and put it on a good foundation, you won’t have to worry about the wind (from a wolf) blowing it away.

Those are just a few examples of how stories teach us lessons and I’m sure you can think of many, many more. We hope you’ll stick around, because we want to continue sharing stories with you and hearing your stories as well. We’ve even considered working with others to help them get their story ideas off the ground. Let us know if you have a story idea to share and what you would need to get it going.
