About The World’s Crummiest Umbrella
Wandering in the Words Press is thrilled to announce the release of The World’s Crummiest Umbrella by illustrator and author, Alex Schumacher. This delightful work of children’s fiction will please kids, and adults who are still kids at heart. It’s now available on Amazon.
Once there was a boy who received the world’s crummiest umbrella. It was a gift from his mother, and he couldn’t believe she would do this to him. The umbrella was huge, multicolored and had a heart on a spring that popped out of the top. Ugh! The boy knows he’ll be the laughing stock of the entire school.But the boy soon learns that some gifts, even crummy ones, are not what they seem to be.
