— image credit:

Abbotsford author Irmgard Schippmann has released her third children’s book.

The latest book by Schippmann, who uses the pen name “AnaBella,” is titled Caroline’s Sticky Situation and is illustrated by Valerie Woelk.

It is about a hedgehog named Caroline and her husband Prickle, who wake up one morning and prepare for a garden party later that day in celebration of Caroline’s 24th birthday.

When the guests arrive and the party begins, it is disrupted by Stanislaus, a tomcat. But Caroline turns things around, and the party is a success.

Schippmann was inspired to write upon the encouragement of her two granddaughters, Isabella and Tatiana, who loved to listen to her stories.

Her first two books, Kira: The Mysterious Disappearance and The Stranger, were both released last year.

All three books are available at House of James in Abbotsford.
