Ferret Fun Excerpt:

Fiona Ferret lived in a cozy little cottage just at the border between the beach and the forest. Fiona lived with her best friend, a human named Fran. Fiona was as white as snow while Fran had dark brown skin with curly brown hair.


Fiona loved to ride on Fran’s shoulder and nap in Fran’s tight brown curls. And she especially loved to play in Fran’s shoes!


Fran had a whole room dedicated to shoes. From snow boots to sneakers to high heels, Fran wore all kinds of shoes. Sometimes, Fran would change into three different pairs a day!
