Tristan's Travels

What would St. Francis of Assisi say about a seagull that is too afraid to fly?

Tristan's Travels tells the story of a frightened seagull that is afraid of almost everything around him—including flying.

This story will take you through the life of Tristan the seagull, Nipper the dull-witted squirrel and Furdock the rabbit, and their dangerous rescue mission.

Will they, with the help of some animal friends, God and Saint Francis, conquer their fears as they take on this adventurous journey?

And what exactly would make a seagull sound like a rooster?

Toupée Mice

It has always been Ian’s dream to praise in the church choir.

But there’s only one problem. He is a mouse and not a human, and the choir members are neither delighted to see or hear him.

In this second children’s’ book by author Karl Bjorn Erickson and illustrator team Kimberly Erickson, Ian, Pierre and Fred—their larger-than-average dwarf-hamster friend—disguise themselves in order to evade Ludwig, the house cat afraid of dust bunnies.

Through it all, they will discover St. Cecilia and the significance of singing praises to God.

Will Ian eventually join the choir?
