Writing is a second career for Sarah Glenn Fortson.

“I was an educator for a long time and probably still am, in a sense. I love my new life as a writer. I’ve enjoyed summers at Iowa’s Writing Festival and one summer at Northwestern University’s Talent Development Center where I taught creative writing to gifted elementary and middle schoolers.”

No two ways about it, this town ain’t big enough for a two-quart diaper. Readers seeking a tot with poor self-esteem shouldn’t look at cowgirl A.K. She is comfortable with who she is and will adroitly circumnavigate anyone’s insistence that she wear underwear instead of her trusty Bronco Buster diapers… Peppy art adds a touch of humor, whether in the form of a saddled and bridled pet cat or the horseshoe-patterned undies our heroine eventually adopts. A.K. and Wilma both present white while her teacher has brown skin. Yippee-ki-yi-yay, git along little diapers! (Picture book. 3-5)
