Of course, that's not all. It seems Judy took the time to hand craft a series of books. Seriously. She made the paper she wrote it on. Yes, it's homemade paper she made from recycled paper. The original books are about 4 inches thick, with handwritten pages and the stunning images that are also a creation of Judy's sly thinking.
Until you see them, you just won't understand. They are shadowy, outlined characters and scenes, with vivid, sometimes even metallic looking colors. They come from the original book Judy made. Some of them are on bright green paper, some pink, or pastel or iridescent pixels. Those are paper pieces, not anything to do with computer graphics.
The book has over twenty pictures in full color. They were scanned by Sansietch himself and have a warmth that allows the depth of the image to stand out.
When the young sorceress Taylor gets in trouble with magic, her Pegasus is turned to stone. Taylor and her friend, Anna, must then journey to Rainbow Mountain and ask the fire horse to tell them exactly where the sun's last evening rays will strike, to release the spell from the Pegasus.
The evil sorcerer McGriffen does not want them to succeed, and the stage is set for a race and a battle.
The book is published by Blues Farm Publishing. http://www.sansietchsays.webs.com. It is currently available at that address, or on Amazon.com.
Judy Redlin was a script supervisor in the motion picture industry for 22 years. She raised three children and has 5 grandchildren. Taylor Houser is 15 years old and goes to Tevis Jr. High School in Bakersfield, California. She began writing with her grandmother at the age of eleven.
Look for the second book in the series sometime around January, 2009.
