My labor of love with the Number Nibblers extends way back to the 1970's, when my wife was teaching deaf education at the primary level. She asked for help with her math bulletin board and I created rudimentary construction paper creatures to put amongst the numbers. Her students loved them so much, they wouldn't let her take them down the entire school year. To this day, I still have most of these primitive cutouts.
A few years later, I wrote the story in verse and created the names and specific "diets" of the Nibblers. Since I have no artistic abilities, the story sat for most of my life. I tried a couple of times to have people try to take what I could see in my mind and replicate it. I always thought that if I could get this book made, children of all ages would fall in love with my characters.
Last year I met a young lady who could finally take my mind's eye view and capture it on paper. Thanks, Jody! So here they are, live and in many colors. The adventures begin with this introductory look at them. Parents, I invite you all to introduce your children to the land of Digitazia and the wonderful, quirky Number Nibblers.
UPDATE: My book is still orderable and shipping directly from my Facebook author page. I've discounted it so parents can share the wonderful story and characters with their children during these scary weeks. Info is in my posts.
