LITERARY LOCAL | Barbara Perry of St. Charles

A PERFECT PUDDLE St. Charles resident, Barbara Perry, is an avid reader and a grandmother to four grandchildren that love hearing her tell made-up stories. Her book, A Perfect Puddle, started out as a story in the back seat of a truck on a rainy day with Gracie and Addie, her granddaughters. The story is about Willie and Arnold who live in a white cloud and can’t wait to become raindrops. The friends have lots to learn and must work as a team to make the journey from the clouds to the ground and back again. It is a fun tale of friendship and an engaging exploration of the water cycle. A Perfect Puddle was self-published through Brown Books and is available through Amazon,, Target and on the shelves at Barnes and Noble. –MK
