Forie and Kedu is the story of Forie the Skunk and Kedu the Squirrel. They live in a park, and Forie causes a lot of mischief with the visitors who are having picnics. Forie and Kedu are quite the troublemakers, but they mean no real harm. The two rangers in the park, Pete and Mike, love all of the animals, but they have a soft spot in their hearts for these two, even if they give them the most headaches. They turn out to be heroes by rescuing a little boy named Dustin who is separated from his parents.
Forie and Kedu take Dustin to the ranger station, where he is reunited with his mother, father, and sister. Dustinís parents are relieved to have found him and are grateful to Forie and Kedu for bringing their son back safely. They even shake Forie and Keduís paws. The rangers are very proud of the animals as well.
Forie and Kedu go off to see what food they can find and what the people have left over from their picnics.
About the Author
I was born and raised on a farm and always liked the animals we had. I used to make up stories about them to entertain my parents and myself. I have lived in Indiana all my life and am retired. I still live there with my husband. I have two children and five grandchildren. All of the children enjoy hearing about the animals in my stories, so I decided to put my stories into print.
