Product Overview

Illustrated by Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen

The sixth tale in our Legend series, "The Legend of the Petoskey Stone" focuses on the naming of this unique fossil, found only on the shores of Lake Michigan. From the ancient, warm sea that covered most of the state, through Native American history and the history of the town named after a great chief, "The Legend of the Petoskey Stone" is a welcome addition to the fables so richly told and illustrated by this much-loved and honored children's book team.

Author Kathy-jo Wargin has earned national acclaim through award-winning children's classics such as Michigan's official state book, "The Legend of Sleeping Bear," Children's Choice Award winner "The Legend of the Loon, The Edmund Fitzgerald: Song of the Bell," and many others. Kathy-jo enjoys writing about nature and its effect on all our lives, and is a frequent guest speaker throughout the country. She is also a faculty member of the Bear River Writers Workshop, sponsored by the University of Michigan. She lives in Petoskey, Michigan.

Since the publication of "The Legend of Sleeping Bear," artist Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen has been an established presence in the world of children's book illustration. His many other titles with Sleeping Bear Press include "The Edmund Fitzgerald: Song of the Bell, Adopted by an Owl, Jam & Jelly by Holly & Nellie," and "The Legend of Leelanau."
