Excerpt

2. In the barn a little mousie Ran to and fro; For she heard the little kitty, Long time ago.

3. Two black eyes had little kitty, Black as a crow; And they spied the little mousie, Long time ago.

4. Four soft paws had little kitty, Paws soft as snow; And they caught the little mousie, Long time ago.

5. Nine pearl teeth had little kitty, All in a row; And they bit the little mousie, Long time ago.

6. When the teeth bit little mousie, Mousie cried out "Oh!" But she slipped away from kitty, Long time ago.

Author of the Day

Jeff Gunhus
In an effort to get his very reluctant 11-year old son to get interested in reading Jeff Gunhus wrote his first book, Jack Templar Monster Hunter. Since then, Gunhus has become a bestselling author of thriller and horror novels for adults and the middle grade/YA series, The Templar Chronicles. As our Author of the Day, Gunhus talks about his novel, Killer Pursuit, shares how he juggles writing with being a father of five and reveals why he creates quiet moments in his books.
