An old bucket works hard his entire life and one day gets a hole in his side. The farmer tosses him into the burn pile. But the Wind helps Bucket and the Moon encourages him to dream of a new life. And he does. With only 60 words in the first few spreads, this quiet story encourages adult and child to slow down and look. We all have purpose even if we have to reinvent our lives. It will leave you loving a little donkey who spends the day helping and sharing, with Bucket.
Katherine Dunn is an artist living on Apifera Farm where she and her husband raise sheep. There she writes, paints and shares stories of the many creatures that live there - old and crippled goats, a grumpy pig, cats, sheep and old donkeys. She also is copilot to a very wise puppet who pontificates in his own movies. Her first book "Creative Illustration Workshop" [Quarry Books] inspires everyone to see their world as a stage ready to be shared through art and story.
