Traveling across a great big pond called the Pacific, I wandered to beautiful Nagasaki, Japan, where today my friends and I happened into a magical store devoted to picture books for children of all ages. I cannot wait to have our story translated into Japanese so that we can come back to this wondrous establishment, to read the story of Bitsy and Raff and share Anastasia Traina’s enchanting pictures!!! Happy holidays to all!! Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu!!!
