A Special message from Captain Paul
" I am deeply touched by this story of Bucky and me.
Patty Shenker has captured a very important time in my childhood, specifically a time that set the foundation for my life’s work.
Seventy years later, I still fondly remember my little friend and the fun days we spent together in his pond.
Her words, beautifully illustrated by David Walega, demonstrates that when a child is touched by the wild, it is a lasting and powerful connection."
