Gordie Little of Clinton County spent 30+ years on local radio, more than 10 years as a Press Republican columnist, and 15 years doing weekly shows of regional interest on local cable television – now he has a new children’s book published by Bloated Toe Publishing.
Publisher and Almanack contributor Larry Gooley says Little Champy Goes to School is about two things: the story of the family of Lake Champlain’s most famous cryptid and a remembrance of two the bridges that have spanned Lake Champlain at Crown Point. Illustrations of both bridges appear in color on the covers and in black-and-white within the book’s pages.
Little Champy Goes to School is about how Little Champy learns to undulate, critically important for sea serpents and lake monsters. Supported by his mother Mama Champy, his father Big Champy, and his grandfather Old Champy, Little Champy attends school far beneath the Lake Champlain Bridge in preparation for the big test of the surface swim. His teacher is Aunt Champanella, who works hard to teach her students what they’ll need to know, especially about undulating.
The book is available at Bloated Toe Publishing online store.
