She spent 30 years in the corporate sector and since then she has devoted her time to writing and illustrating children’s stories.

I create children’s picture books as much for the parents, teachers and care-givers as I do for the children.  Parents typically enjoy the stories and illustrations as much as the children do, which I feel encourages and promotes reading to children on a regular basis.  My fond memories of being read to as a child by my mother and teachers have strongly influenced the style of the books I create, which tend to be simple, happy, light-hearted and fun. My books are designed to promote kindness and compassion among children, and to remind adults of the joy to be had in connecting with children through picture books.” … Linda Margulis Yant

Once the Mayor shows up with Officer Robin to investigate, the animals who live in the woods gather to perform an investigation of their own.  Most suspect Barrett the Blue Jay, but he has an alibi.  Or does he? No one can seem to find Barrett to ask him.  The animals pay a visit to Mr. Jenkins, the cockatiel who lives inside a nearby house and watches all of the happenings in the woods through his binoculars. Will they find Barrett? Will the Mayor and Officer Robin find Mrs. Cardinal’s ribbon? Will they ever learn who took the ribbon, and why?
