Hi! My name is Haley Fell, and I am seven and a half years old. I love to draw and write, and I want to be an author and illustrator when I grow up. I have written a lot of books at home, but this is my first time publishing one. The Karakul, author of Wrush, visited our school and told us that anyone—even kids, can publish a book. When I got home from school, I told my mom I wanted to publish a book so she found a publisher, and I wrote a book. That was how my book started.
