Guest author Leela Hope



My name is Walter Wolf,
And I am only 4 years old,
Today I get to pick my Spring season own clothes,
But we have to go soon, I was told

The first thing I need to do,
Is pick out underwear,
Then I grab some socks,
But which the red or the blue pair.

With blue socks on,
And underwear with pictures of ants,
I open the bottom drawer,
And pick out my favorite pants.

One leg goes in just fine,
But it is hard to do while standing,
I cannot get my leg high enough,
I jump and miss and I have a rough landing.

I yell to Mom, "This is too hard,
I am going to quit,"
She yells back, "don't give up,
I know that you can do it!"

From the floor it's easier as I turn to sit,
I get the leg in place,
I pull them up and do the button,
It was hard and there is sweat on my face.

I pick out a red plaid shirt,
To go with my green and blue stripped pant,
I try to put it on out in the hall,
And I knock over a potted plant.


Mom comes to see what's happened,
Because she heard a sound,
But when she sees how good I look,
Her jaw almost hits the ground.

"Wow!" Mom says, she's very excited,
"My dear you look so good,
But you might need to change,
I really think you should."

She helped me pick out a shirt,
And a new pair of pants,
Then she left the room,
While I did my clothes off dance.

I wrestled my shirt over my head,
My pants were there to trip me,
I slipped on the new shirt,
It had a picture of a bee.

My Mom was happy,
And she tussle up my hair,
She called, "Time to go."
But no answer came there.

We found my older brother Willy,
In his socks and underwear,
He still wasn't wearing clothes,
Mom gave him an angry stare.

Finally we were ready to go,
And we went through the door,
Now I know I can get dressed,
And I am ready to do more.

 PUYB Meet the Author
Leela Hope is a writer with over 22 years of experience in writing endearing children’s fiction. Her lively characters have entranced and captivated her audience, and she has taken great joy in writing the three series of books, each beautifully illustrated with love and care. Her stories concentrate on the adventures of floppy eared bunnies and wide-eyed children learning lessons in life, before returning home wiser and eager for sleep. leela hope writes her stories to entertain the very young, but also to educate. Her vision is always of a parent sitting on a child’s bed, reciting the stories each night, while the young one drifts off to sleep, lulled into a dream world full of fun and adventure.

From her very earliest years of childhood, Leela made up stories in her head, telling them to her younger brother and sister. The stories flowed easily from her mind, and it wasn’t long before she realized she had a gift for writing. By the age of 14, she had already written a small book of short stories for her own entertainment, and by the age of 22, she had published her first full-fledged children’s fiction in several magazines. Leela hope was destined to be an author and she knew exactly what genre of fiction she wanted to dedicate her life too.

Born in San Diego, California, and still residing in the area, Leela studied English Literature at Berkeley, earning a degree in 1989. Her writing covers a span of several genres, but she always returns to her first love, children’s fiction. She enjoys scuba diving and visiting wildlife parks, seeking new inspiration for cuddly characters for her stories. leela hope lives in an urban area of San Diego and is presently at work on a new book.
