Phyllis Chandler Grey
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting Phyllis Chandler Grey. She has a new children's book out: "Route 66 In Search of Ghosts and Treasures." It follows a family's trip on the mother road in search of things that their grandmother saw, and in search of new things that make Route 66 special.
This is me and Phyllis, playing with the photo op signs in our building. Getting our kicks, everyday, on 66!
Here is a page from her book. It has so much history included that I think adults will like it too. One thing I was soooo happy to see was that her characters are travel journaling, which is a passion of mine. Before they even start their trip, they research it using many popular books on Route 66...check it out...you will recognize some of these titles.
Her book is chock full of colorful illustrations created with markers and goes step by step down the Mother Road from Chicago to Los Angles. It's a hard cover and printed on high quality stock. It's in the shop now and the price is just 19.99.
