About this title:

Synopsis: This sweet little rhyme is but a reminder of our life with a very eccentric, fun-loving, loyal and curious ferret named Bogus Minky Hoffensteaders Williams. Rarely did we purchase animals from pet stores, as most of the Williams? animals just ?showed up?. However, to resist a ferret playing is folly and a near impossibility, and this one was no exception. Mom and Dad knew that leaving the store without this guy was not a battle they were going to win with their children. Everyone who met ?the Mink? loved him, but so often you?d hear other parents say, ?I?m glad my son can play with a ferret at YOUR house.? He reinforced some of our basic human characteristics by example. He was the master of fun, spontaneity, and curiosity... things we could all do a little more of in life.

About the Author: Jennifer was raised in Oakland, California, but came to Idaho in 1972 as the wife of an Air Force pilot. She began her teaching career at Mountain Home High School where she taught art for 25 years before teaching art at Skyview High School. She earned her BFA in Art Education from Mississippi State University and her Master?s Degree from Boise State University. Jennifer lives in Idaho with her husband Kirk, where she has been an art educator for 42 years. Jennifer has been an adjunct professor at Boise State University, George Fox and the College of Idaho. Jennifer has received numerous state and national awards in her teaching career, including the Governor?s Award in Art Education, US West Teacher of the Year, Boise State?s Distinguished Alumni Award and Women Making History Award, ING?s 1st Place National Unsung Heroes Award, the National Education Associations Teaching Excellence Award, Idaho?s Art Teacher of the Year and was the 2002 IDAHO TEACHER OF THE YEAR. Jennifer is a published artist/author, having written 2 art textbooks, and numerous articles. This is the fourth in a series of children?s books she has written about the plethora of sentient beings that always seem to find their way into her life. Jennifer passionately advocates for all creatures. She has taken art to tiny one room school houses for over 37 years with her ?Project Van Go?. Jennifer is also a Teaching Artist for the Idaho Commission on the Arts. Her greatest work, she says, is that of mother to four amazing children: Hillary a graduate of the University of Idaho working in Human Resources and living in Arizona, Tyler a Doctor of Physical Therapy residing in the bay area, Jessica (Kyle) a high school science teacher in Idaho and amazing mother to our precious ?cheeky monkey? Norah (the first human grandchild), and Emily (Jason) who is a junior high school counselor, and mother to Daisy (the first canine grandchild). In her free time, Jennifer rehabilitates wild and domesticated animals. Of late, Jennifer is volunteering her time at the Makauwahi Cave Reserve on Kaua?i where her two giant sulcata tortoises, Shelly and Lily, are part of a project that promotes the propagation of native Hawaiian plants. Jennifer donates profits from her books to many organizations. Her greatest inspiration was her mother who passed away 3 years ago. Jennifer smiles at the journey that is her life since she was Miss San Francisco Cable Car 1968.
