Velvet Green Creations is proud to present, North County Publishing. We are committed to producing "UPlifting Children's Books" for children of all ages. "Pond Friends" is the first of many books to be offered through our company. Here we feature the story of Billy.
Children's Book, "Pond Friends"
Billy finds many challenges in the big pond and it's all about growing up and making friends — a tadpole that grows up into a bullfrog. This story along with illustrations, story board, and text were all copyrighted in 1994 by Chris and Gina Harman. This story was sent to various publishers and magazines back in 1994 to 1998. The project was tabled until we self-published in 2022.
In our story, Billy is born in a big pond and meets new friends. In time, he changes and grows, "and being a frog was fun". With the help from "Old Timeless Turtle", who lives in his sunken tree trunk home, Billy finds answers about changing into a bullfrog and about friendships. The story presents many challenges for Billy with new friends and environments. In the end, Billy does have both the pond and land to enjoy — along with many great friends.
