Sherri Maret, who started out as a librarian at Chambersburg Area School District and moved to Cumberland Valley High School before spending her final years as librarian in the Shippensburg Area School District, has released a new book for children.
Maret is part Choctaw, and her publisher paired her with a Choctaw illustrator, Merisha Sequoia Clark, who lives in California.
Here is a look at Maret and her new book, “The Cloud Artist: A Choctaw Story.”
Author: Sherri Maret
Illustrator: Merisha Sequoia Clark
Where the author lives: Newville
Title of the book: “The Cloud Artist: A Choctaw Story”
Sherri Maret’s new book with the awarding winning publisher, The RoadRunner Press of Oklahoma City, is called “The Cloud Artist.” It is a story that is a little historical fiction, a lot of fantasy, and a little bit of tall tale.
Leona, a little Choctaw girl, discovers she can use the sky as a canvas and the clouds as paint. Once she discovers the gift, she must decide how she wants to use it.
As an educator Maret knows teachers and librarians are busy, so she created multiple follow-up activities that are available on her website, www.sherrimaret.com. Parents who home school their children may also find these helpful.
Publisher: The RoadRunner Press of Oklahoma City
Date of release: Sept. 26, 2017
How many books have you written/released: I have written over 30 books but only three books have been published. “The Cloud Artist” is my first book with The RoadRunner Press.
