wazdotWazdot? is a simple, visually humorous farm-themed book with an outer space twist. A little alien named Blip visits a farm on a class field trip and explores every nook and cranny. After the reader guesses what Blip has found based on silhouettes, his hand-held translator Zot answers his queries (“Wazdot? Cow!”). The illustrations tell the rest of the story as Blip discovers that visiting a farm is a lot of fun. Great for a farm or outer-space-themed story time, this will especially be a hit with little boys.

Megan is Associate Editor for Redeemed Reader who loves nothing more than helping readers (and non-readers) find books which are not only a good fit for them, but also combine Truth and Story. She has never regretted reading all those fairy tales in childhood, even though she didn’t realize at the time how much they matter to real life. She is the founder of Literaritea Press and plans to publish her first picture book soon. Megan lives with her husband and five boys in Virginia where she enjoys knitting, playing with words, and mountain views.
