Cleo and Roger Discover Columbus, Indiana


My latest book Cleo & Roger Discover Columbus, Indiana is taking Columbus by storm. It follows two squirrels, Cleo and Roger, who travel downtown to view the unique and amazing architecture of Columbus, Indiana. Columbus is unique in that it features so many buildings designed for world-renown architects. It is like a museum of architecture or as our former first lady, Lady Bird Johnson, so aptly has named it – “A Symphony in Stone”.

Cleo & Roger Discover Columbus highlights several buildings in downtown Columbus as well as Zaharakos and Irwin Inn & Gardens. Characters are named for famous people from Columbus such as Clessie Cummins, J. Irwin Miller, Louie Zaharako, Chuck Taylor and more.
