"Stacia is not your average teenage gypsy. This orphaned dancer enchants all who watch her except Blaise, the nine-year-old street thief and his sly fox Seba. All they see are the coins thrown to the gypsy. With the help of friends and a few tricks up her sleeve, Stacia hopes to teach them a lesson they won't forget. Enjoy this debut children's book from Illinois author and illustrator Nicole Blackburn. This book is a great transitional book for children moving from picture books to chapter books."
And I wish to thank everyone for their encouragement and support. Thank you Margaret and Luke for your proofing eyes, thank you Alex and Jacob all those years ago for modeling for my character drawings. Thank you Mom and Dad for always believing in me, and thanks to God for giving me dreams to believe in!
