What makes the Kathryn the Grape series extra special?
Here are some fun tid-bits from creator, Kathryn Cloward:

• Every named character in the series represents a real person. For example, "Maggie" represents my maternal grandma. The softball players in Just Like Magic are my real childhood teammates. "Jennie Dog" represents my good friend Jennie Lapointe, who helps guide me through my creative process and helped me create the storyline for Colorful Adventure. The "Landon" character is my son, who is also my greatest inspiration.
• When I was inspired with the storyline for Piece of Love, I knew I wanted real children to be characters in the book. I held a character contest and the winning children were illustrated in their own likeness. Their individual pieces in the book are their actual answers to the story's question.
• I always dreamed of being a singer/songwriter as a young child. Writing and singing the songs for Believe was the manifestation of that dream coming true.
• I invited six everyday kids to sing back-up vocals on the Believe album. They were not professional singers, and none of them had ever been in a music studio before. It was a huge deal for them, and made my heart smile knowing I was gifting children with a new opportunity.
• "Kathryn the Grape" was my real childhood nickname gifted to me from my softball coach, "Mr. P," as introduced in Just Like Magic.
• I didn't start the series because I wanted to be an author. I started the series because I felt the calling to share messages of love.
• Each book shares life lessons and affirmations that I have personally learned, and most of the scenarios Kathryn the Grape encounters are taken from my own life experiences. The fourth book in the series is about trust and is expected to be published by mid-2015.
