“Although Nothing Fancy About Kathryn & Charlie is aimed at a young demographic, I believe it can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. It’s wonderful that this book will introduce two of Alabama’s finest artists to a younger demographic…”

Book Column, Susan Swagler

“In Nothing Fancy About Kathryn & Charlie (Mockingbird Publishing), Kerry’s words capture the special bond between the storyteller and the artist, one older and one younger, one white and one black, one well-read and one who couldn’t read but soon learned how with help from the other. Kerry’s older daughter, Lucy, added a wonderfully whimsical touch to the book with kid-friendly, multimedia illustrations. Together, they created a lovely picture book that will appeal to both the very youngest readers and to those of us whose lives were already made richer by the art of these two extraordinary people.”
