Animal Quackers…

Author Marlene Klotz has written a delightful new book of children’s poetry that will have kids chuckling as they travel through the antics of characters such as the Alligator with the toothy smile and the squiggly wiggly worm. Animal Quackers follows Klotz’s earlier Alphabet Zoo. Inspired by love for her own grandchildren, this award-winning poet has once again captured the magic of childhood in a book that is perfect for gift-giving.

Klotz’s work, including  her poetry books, Shared Memories and The Poetry of Life are representative of her sensitivity as well as humor. Her poem A Mountain of Shoes was accepted by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.

Animal Quackers is currently available through or a personalized copy can be ordered from the author at:

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
