This is really simple. Madison and her mother take care of coats at the Toronto Easter Seals Telethon. I had been VOLUNTEERED to take part by Lauretta Reid, the kid who is in ZOOM. So, Madison was there with a flower painted on her face to take care of my coat when I was part of the Telethon. I made up this story for her on the spot and later visited her school to tell it to her class. It takes place in her hometown of Orangeville, Ontario and all the action takes place on the main street in Orangeville. The next year she had a butterfly painted on her face and she asked me how the story was doing. I told her I was telling it a lot and that it was going to be a book.
Look at Me!
