The story of Francine and Chez was inspired when my younger son, Herman was in the second grade. Have you ever thought about how you and your best friend became friends? Friends are always kind to each other. They never try to get you to do anything that your parents would not approve of you doing. They are respectful to themselves, to their parents, to your parents, to other adults, as well as to you. This book is dedicated to all boys and girls who enjoy reading and to those who enjoy listening to books being read to them. Thank you to my family and friends for your words of encouragement. Thank you for expressing your belief in in my ability to share my creativity with the world. Very special thanks go to my sons, Arkos and Herman, Jr. for your love and untiring support in seeing this labor of love to the end.
Francine, The Fish And Chez, The Cat The Story of An Unlikely Friendship
Francine, The Fish played along the shore. She never joined the other fish as they went Splish, Splash in the beautiful blue ocean! Francine, The Fish played on the sandy beach all dressed up in her pretty colorful sun suit and straw hat. The other fish would whisper that Francine thought she was too cute to play with them in the water. That was very far from the truth. In fact, Francine was afraid of the water. She could not swim! Can you imagine that? A fish that can’t swim! She was so embarrassed! None of the other fish knew this.
