Author offers sweet spin on Hodag story

Jill Kuczmarski

"Never judge a book by its cover. That doubly goes for author and designer Jill Kuczmarski's hodag Happy — an all-teeth-and-no-bite take on a local legend.  In fact, Kuczmarski has spent the last decade using Happy to re-spin a dark and scary urban legend into a picture book character young children would love. It's all a part of the Rhinelander native's effort to challenge how we think about nature and community." READ THE FULL STORY
