A Grateful Heart

Book 2: Kristy continues to discover the magical world of Clohverville, a village existing right underneath her bed, where those wonderful Villager Dust Bunnies, the Ohmadillapicklearoos, live. When Kristy wishes she could live as fancy as her friend lives, she becomes very troubled and starts to speak ungrateful words to her mother. Along comes Mr. Ohmadillapicklearoo – Mr. Oh for short – to show Kristy a different way of thinking. And off they go to the Village of Clohverville where, coincidentally, the dust bunnies are attending Think Not But What You Got Day. It s a thanksgiving celebration over the smallest of things things that we might take for granted everyday. And with Mr. Oh s help, Kristy learns what it means to check your heart. And it all happens. . . right UNDERneath YOUR BED!

About the author: Janice Stitziel Bloom created the Ohmadillapicklearoos Those Villager Dust Bunnies Under My Bed in 1994 as the result of having to work the intellectual side of her brain much too hard. Thus, the creative side rebelled and ran amuck! Along life s journey, Ms. Bloom has earned three degrees, including one in law. After having served as general counsel for a national nonprofit organization for several years, she resigned to devote more time to work on the Ohmadillapicklearoos. But no matter the project, her greatest rewards and moments have always come from her family life. She is a devoted wife and mother – to some very creative minds – and committed to family values.
