This is the very first picture book I wrote, and for that, it'll always hold a special place for me. It's one of the more explicitly "instructional" Tales of Midlandia stories — all of them have some sort of character-building, social-educational aspect to them, but this one, down to the title, is pretty direct in its mission.

There's a lot I'm proud of in this book — the contrast of Harvest's bulk with his sensitivity, for instance. If I had to pick a favorite moment, though, it's one not directly related to the plot; I'd choose the ears of corn gag. You see, my perfect picture of how to best experience these books is the image of an older sibling reading to a younger sibling. Let's say a second or third grader reading to a kindergartener. The ears of corn gag is a little 'wink' to that older sibling. Hopefully, they'll wink back.
