Helping Toby's Team

Helping Toby's Team (2006) Post 386

Helping Toby's Team is another of those beautifully illustrated very short books designed to showcase a particular topic. In this case, it was force-and-motion. Originally called Helping Tom's Team, with the younger child being a girl, this one is the simple story of a younger brother (changed in edits) who wants to help the elder one take all the equipment to the game. He offers help and then has to work out how to deliver it. He uses a wagon, and discovers, along with the reader, that a path is more conducive to force and motion than the grassy park.
I was Sandra Fitzgerald this time! (This preserves the initials of my maiden name!)


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.
