About the Book

Putter's Purple Power Toe is a humorous, fictional, 60-page chapter book for children ages 6 to 12 years (and older). It is written by Sue Olson Gee and illustrated by her nephew Nate Josephs.

On his parent' s farm in 1958, a 10 year old boy named Putter stubs his toe on a mysterious purple rock in the woods while playing hide-and-seek. He is unaware that he now has magic powers in his purple toe, until his pet gerbil starts talking and his brother stops.

Go along with Putter to his little two-room country school in Big Bend City, and relive some of the author's memories in that special haven in Minnesota. Follow Putter's exciting adventures through a year of carefully making twelve wishes and discovering that "good" wishes are the most rewarding.

About the Author

Sue Olson Gee was born and grew up in Minnesota in an area very dear to her heart - Big Bend City, about 150 miles west of Minneapolis.

She and her husband have lived in Appleton, Wisconsin for the past four years, where she started writing children's books. The first book she wrote and illustrated, Pennybottom Bear and the Tale of his Tail was published in July of 2004, by Trafford Publishing.

Sue says, "I like to write with morals and a bit of humor for children, because they need examples and I love to hear them laugh!"
