By Jess Hilliard with drawings by Chris Johanson

Edited by Harrell Fletcher

My friend Jess Hilliard is a great writer. I realized that about ten years ago when he read some stories to me that he had written on scraps of paper. The scraps accumulated and I decided I should publish them as a book. The only thing is that it took me a long time to do, about ten years. But now its done. It’s about a hundred pages and it’s great and it has illustrations by Chris Johanson.
