You know how awesome it is when you get to introduce people to each other that you just know will be instant friends?
That's how I feel about my friend, Ruby–and you.
See, when I wrote Flash the Donkey Makes New Friends, I knew that Ruby had to be a central character. A mis-matched collection of companions MUST have someone who's in charge!
Everyone should have a chicken for a friend, right? A mother-hen type who seems to know just what to do in any situation.
Ruby will direct you to a chair so you can sit down.
Have an injury?
She will produce a bandage and ice, almost out of thin air.
Ruby happens to have a pot of soup on the stove.
There, there. Ruby knows just how to cheer you up.
Has someone done you wrong?
Well, that ruffles her feathers just thinking about it.
Ruby fusses. She clucks. She talks to herself as she bustles about.
And always stylish, she is never without her earrings and necklace.
You can be assured that Ruby is a fine feathered friend, who will forever believe in you, worry over you, and make sure you've eaten a good breakfast. She's always got your back.
See, I knew you'd love her!
Since I'm counting down the days until you meet Ruby in real life, (when my book releases on Oct. 1,) I'd like to do a little PRE-CELEBRATING!
One lucky commenter will receive a signed copy of Flash the Donkey Makes New Friends today.
Simply let us know: who is a "Ruby" in your life? Do you have someone who fusses, clucks and bustles about your life, making sure she knows all the details?
Let's cheer for all the Ruby's of this world! Where would we be without them?? (Mine is my daughter, Lauren - a first-rate mother hen of the finest sort!)
