Reviews of the book



Baerlie and Red-Nosed Take Off, Book 2

This is the second book in the trilogy: Baerlie and Red-Nosed. The entire project is about respect and friendship – regardless of whether the participants are extremely tall, very short, heavy, on the light side, gray-haired or green-spotted. Diversity enriches all of our lives.
