Author Renee Pierce-Williams is pleased to announce the release of her new book, Buck, the Good Doog. The book was illustrated by her daughter Shelby Renee Williams.
Renee says, “Shelby brings Buck the Good Doog to life with her love for animals and her artistic ability. Each image in the book is hand painted. There are no computer-generated illustrations. Because Shelby grew up knowing and loving Buck, she was the obvious choice to be the illustrator for this book. No one else could have painted a more accurate depiction of the main character. As a writer and her mother, I am truly honored to have worked with her on this project.”
