Frieda B. and the Finkledee Ink
Frieda B. voted Best Picture Book Series by the National Moonbeam Children's Book Awards!
And here's the fourth book in the series. When a traveling salesman comes to town selling Finkledee Ink, Frieda B. scrapes together every last penny to purchase a jar for herself. Her hope and belief is that this one jar of ink magically will make her a great writer (a deep longing she holds in her heart). But can a jar of ink truly hold the key to her dream? And if so, what happens to that dream when the jar of ink shatters? (Gasp!) Does her dream shatter, too?
Frieda B. and the Finkledee Ink is a story to help children of all ages heartily believe that when it comes to our dreams and our natural gifts, there's nothing we need to buy or get. Nope. Everything is inside of us already. What we do need is dedication, perseverance, and the belief and support of others. And - more importantly - the belief in our very own selves. 8" x 10". Hardcover, full-color. Printed in the USA.

"Ink is ink, don't you think? Isn't all ink the same? One would think, but one ink with an odd-sounding name promised more - so much more that our friend Frieda B. spent her every last cent just to try it and see."
