Description

As a young girl growing up on Hazel Ridge Farm, Kelly is aware of how special the place she calls home is. After all, it's not everyday that your backyard lets you view white-tailed deer and sand-hill cranes, swim in ponds populated by snapping turtles or hear the hoot of an owl named Jackson as he keeps watch as you sleep each night. Committed to maintaining a natural wilderness, Kelly's parents have created a wildlife sanctuary where both the land and its animal residents can be nurtured. Kelly of Hazel Ridge is the third title in the Hazel Ridge Farm series (Saving Samantha and Adopted by an Owl) by husband-and-wife team Gijsbert and Robbyn Smith van Frankenhuyzen, and is inspired by their life on their 40-acre farm located in Bath, Michigan. For over 20 years, Robbyn and Gijsbert (also known as Nick) have nurtured the land back to health and raised and released injured and orphaned animals. Nick has illustrated over 20 books for Sleeping Bear Press, including The Legend of Sleeping Bear, The Legend of the Petoskey Stone (#1 Midwest bestseller), and Texas Bluebonnet runner-up Mercedes and the Chocolate Pilot.

Carolyn Beck spent her summers in fields and meadows. She spends as much time as she can at her cottage in the Muskokas. This is the second book she has worked on with her sister, Andrea. Carolyn lives in Toronto, Ontario. Andrea Beck, creator of the Elliot Moose series, loves animals. She had a beagle named Toby whose black spots reminded her of cow patches.
