About the book, Champ - the little plesiosaur

My new creation - a book about Champ! I'm so excited to share my story about our beloved Champ with everyone.  I've written the story based on historical information and stories I've heard growing up.  The artwork is my watercolors merged into photos I've taken around the lake.
