Dr. Ellen's
Children's Book

This author-illustrated children's book is set in Virginia's Historic Triangle region that includes Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown.

It is the story of a small dog that becomes lost in this famous place and embarks on a search to find her owner. Along the way the dog, Willi, encounters many Virginia animals and historic figures who come to her assistance, and help direct her to the Yorktown Battlefields where she reunites with her owner after some very exciting adventures.

The illustrations aquaint the young reader with memorable sites in colonial history, and the story is structured to make the dog's trek easy to follow using maps and local travel guides. It is a must read if you are planning a trip with them to Williamsburg! In fact, many children insist on retracing Willi's exact steps with their parents in tow!

NOTE: Older children will enjoy doing their own research using an included APPENDIX that gives detailed historical and animal identification information behind every illustration used in the book.
