A Top Secret Air Force base hanger was on full alert searching for an escaped alien body that had somehow survived the spaceship crash. Men in black and armed military jeeps were lighting the secret area with spot lights to find the unknown dead body that was now alive and running in the dark. Several miles down the hill from the secret base ran a short creature with long white fibers that glowed blue every five seconds. His long arms with red claws interlocked over his head every three steps to glide above the ground for five seconds. Brujo, the name he would be given by a local boy, stopped with a loud yell sounding screath amid glide and pierced his bright red eyes back towards the hanger. He followed with a second high pitch screath carried into the wind towards the base hoping for a returned screath. Brujo listened hoping his co-back Leffler had also survived the spaceship crash and also escaped from the secret hanger. Brujo released a final sad screath into the night wind and quickly ran his one, two, three steps interlocked his clawed hands and glided in a blue haze for five seconds towards town. He floated in a five, three, five rhythm until he reached the first house on the hill from the secret base. Brujo stared at the house high on hill by a ravine and noticed a glass portal on the side of the home. His red eyes scanned through the big picture window and fixed upon a white cloudy figure playing a large grand piano. He yelped a silent screath and thought what kind of creature is this and can it lead me to my earthly invitee known as “with love”?

It’s a hot day at the farm when Norman the baby bull starts to feel sick from the heat and curls up in the shade of a tree, too weak to stand. His friend Chase notices Norman’s distress and immediately comes to comfort him and cool him down. The next morning, Chase can’t wait to go check on Baby Bull Norman to see if he is feeling better. Children who are taught to show kindness for animals tend to grow up to be kind and concerned about people too. Very often, animals become family to us, and they need to be protected and helped when they are sick, sad, or lonely. Chase and Baby Bull Norman reinforces this concept in a fun and colorful story that’s sure to delight children and adults alike!

About Bradford C. Edwards: I was born on a dairy farm in Cooperstown, New York. Guns were often kept behind the kitchen or closet doors just like a broom or an umbrella. A gun was a tool. Back then, kids knew where the guns were kept. Don’t kid yourself. Today’s kids know were the guns are kept. The question is do they know what to do if a young friend or relative finds and shows them a gun?
