This author becomes one with subjects
Wearing a snorkel mask and jumping into a pond, local children's book writer Rick Chrustowski gets face-to-face with the animals that dot the pages of his children's books.
The author and illustrator of five books, including: "Big Brown Bat," "Turtle Crossing," "Blue Sky Bluebird," "Hop Frog" and "Bright Beetle" visited Westside Elementary Feb. 27-28.
During his visit, Chrustowski said his books start with one little idea. He then does research and writes a story.
