‘Cozmo’s Wish’ on Boardwalk

Stay Toon’d Publishing has published Janet Tlachac-Toonen’s 10th work: Cozmo’s Wish. This time the Dyckesville children’s book author and illustrator has created a rhyming tale about a unicorn and his dream to be more colorful.

Cozmo’s dream is not magically realized after wishing on a star, so he and his firefly friends embark on a mission to find a forest artist’s studio. This book is a prequel that explains how the fireflies of the author’s Firefly Cave series became colorful.

Cozmo’s Wish will be the featured story along the Crescent Beach Boardwalk during Algoma’s Art of Water III event starting May 3, and it will be on display during May along the boardwalk.

Books will be available at the Yardstick Bookshop and Gallery, 317 Steele St. in Algoma; and at Wienke’s Market, 292 Cty S in Algoma. Tlachac-Toonen will do a book reading and signing on May 26, 1-2 pm, at Yardstick Bookshop. To purchase books online, visit
