Spike – “Jasper”

Book Four, Story Five

Since Jasper in Story Five is a naughty cat, I did not want to make him one of my own barn cats. The illustrator of my books, Christina Wald, and I both love animals and we often share photos of our pets with each other (and I share photos of my farm and farm animals) when we are exchanging business emails. She sent me a photo of her cat, Spike, who always “helps her” when she is drawing illustrations…like my house cat, Suri, “helps me” when I am working on my laptop computer! Spike had the “purrrfecct look” for Jasper, so we used him as the “cat model” in Story Five!

What Our Readers Say…

Maria R. English
Hershey, PA
My great niece, Gianna, loves animals and I knew the Adventures at Green Apple Acres book series would be a wonderful Christmas gift for her, so I purchased all three books. Gianna read the stories in all three books and enjoyed all of the adventures of the farm animals. To add to the excitement, I arranged a visit to Cynthia’s farm for Gianna and me. Gianna got to meet Shiloh! Those two bonded like they knew each other forever! We could tell in Gianna’s eyes during our visit that she was on top of the world! Many of the animals at Cynthia’s farm are in the stories of her books. Thank you, Cynthia, for writing these stories. The stories not only give children an opportunity to escape into another world, but also, they teach life lessons. Gianna and I are looking forward to future books and more adventures for the animals on the farm!
