Book Description


Yak`s Corner: Children`s Stories by Artie Knapp - the humorous children`s stories in this collection were previously published by the Detroit Free Press` Yak`s Corner, an 8-page print magazine written for students ages 6-13. Sporadic B&W spot illustrations accompany each story. 


From the foreword: On behalf of Yak`s Corner, I would like to express thanks to Artie Knapp for allowing us to publish five of his delightful animal tales in our magazine. Our young readers benefited from his use of humor to gently deliver messages about following your heart, respecting differences, pursuing your dream, conquering your fears, and being true to yourself.

This collection of endearing tales is a must-have!  Follow the fun cast of characters through each clever and entertaining story.  They teach valuable lessons in a humorous, light-hearted way.

Artie Knapp`s delightful writing and enticing illustrations will amuse both children and parents. His impressive "what if" imagination is accompanied by strong, reassuring messages. An excellent addition to any children`s story collection!
