“I understand now,” said Bunny. “Just because some LOOKS bad does not mean he IS bad.”

In this book, “The Third Adventures of Thelma Thistle and Her Friends,” Thelma Thistle was rude to Cory Crow but managed to apologize. She is happy and fortunate enough that her apology was accepted. Also, accusations were hurled toward another friend who is innocent. All’s well that ends well after admission of mistake, and most importantly, acceptance.
This book shows readers all the moral values in friendship. This is a perfect gift to all friends.
“The Third Adventures of Thelma Thistle and Her Friends” will be one of the many captivating books displayed in the upcoming 2018 New York Rights Fair which will be happening on May 30, 2018. Don’t forget the date and grab a copy.

About the Author
Joyce Crawford grew up in the little southern town of Hawthorne, Florida in the 1950’s. She was blessed by having three generations of loving family nearby. One of her happiest memories was living next door to her great Uncle Delbert in a sweet little white house with green trim located just across the overpass. The author remembers southern charms of cows grazing in orange groves just across the back fence; a bird dog named Major, who took every opportunity to jump in the back of the pick-up-truck if Uncle Delbert happened to go near the shed; mocking birds singing happily in ancient magnolia trees; and the sweetest memory of all, grandma and grandpa’s house in the middle of a pecan grove.

One less than happy memory was hearing yelps of pain from her older brother when he stepped on a prickly pear while mowing the yard (mowing in protest, she might add). How a prickly pear morphed into a sweet little thistle named Thelma is unknown. The author’s first inspiration came from her first grade teacher, a novice teacher named Miss Seltzer. There was an on-going competition among the first-grade girls to see who could run fastest back to the classroom after lunch. The two winners received the coveted nap-time space under the teacher’s desk. The rainbow-colored petty coats were not the only inspiration Miss Seltzer unknowingly bestowed. It was a teacher’s love of the children and love of teaching that left the biggest impression on this little first-grade girl. “Thelma” was thirty years in the making.

The inspiration for “Thelma” came by way of the 1988 comedy movie, “The Funny Farm,” staring Chevy Chase. The author jotted down her initial thoughts but those pages lingered in a box for thirty years next to her son’s first pair of shoes. Once retired, the author again picked up pen to paper and “Thelma” was finally born.

“Never judge someone without knowing the whole story. You may think you understand, but you don’t.”
