Stories and poetry pique a child’s interest and imagination. Like most parents, Craig Vroom knew this and often read Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein pieces to his own kids. Soon, however, he started writing his own stories to keep them engaged and that eventually led to his career as a children’s book author. Linn Winstead Trochim, owner of Animart Studios in Colorado Springs and former artist with Hanna Barbera lends her artistry and illustration to help his stories come to life. Craig’s books follow the adventures of a young boy named Andrew and his friend, a dragon named Feelo. Written in verse, children will be sure to enjoy the rhymes and the sense of adventure in the stories Craig Vroom has cooked up.
