ABOUT BITSY AND RAFF’S SPECIAL EDITION ARE HERE!!! Written by the wondrous wordsmith, David Caudle, and illustrated by Anastasia Traina

Greetings to all… First we like to say a very heartfelt thanks to all those who have already helped us to bring, BITSY the Heaviest Butterfly and RAFF the Tenderest Reed: A New Picture Book, a timeless story of the power of friendship into vivid life through the beautiful, wondrous illustrations of Anastasia Traina! You have all made this such a magical experience for both David and I, and it is that very feeling of magic that we hope to share with others. We have not yet offer BITSY AND RAFF to any mainstream publisher, and it is very likely we will work with such an entity to produce a trade edition with the aid of our wondrous agent Allison Cohen at the helm. But before we submit to the challenges and compromises of the marketplace, we had hope to create a truly special volume, befitting an heirloom. So with that said, we are very proud that Bitsy and Raff’s Special Edition has fulfill our vision past even our own expectations. Bitsy and Raff is now all prim and proper, and ready to go to the presses, so that we may bring (very soonishly) to all those who supported our campaign their Special Limited Edition... However, before we do this we would like to extend to you our final offer of ordering your very own Special Edition of Bitsy and Raff! Due to the overwhelming response we have created a very limited supply of signed copies available for purchase!! Also available are the Bitsy and Raff Tee-shirts for only ten dollars if purchased with a Bitsy and Raff book!! Wishing you all buckets of bluebells, David, Anastasia and Scott  https://www.etsy.com/listing/194930783/bitsy-and-raffs-special-edition?ref=shop_home_active_1
