Book Description

Mish The Mushroom Man is story for young children about self worth and what we think of ourselves, regardless of what others may think of us. Mish tries to be accepted by the other mushroom men in the forest, with the help of his loyal side kick Sidley the snail. His efforts are unsuccessful. It takes a forest catastrophe to make the other mushroom men see Mish for who he really is, a very brave and wonderful friend to all.

About the Author

Cheryl Johnson, both author and illustrator of Mish The Mushroom Man has been interested in art all her life. She started drawing at an early age and continued throughout her school years. Her art career took a back seat to raising a family for many years. Then, in her late thirties, she decided to go to a local art college and finally got a degree in Fine Arts. She currently works as a puzzle designer for a hand cut wooden jig saw company. Recently she has discovered the world of digital art and in the past year has illustrated several children's books, and is now exploring the possibilities of publishing her own works. Some of the stories that she is working on now were ones she created for her own children when they were young, including Mish. She hopes that you will enjoy Mish as much as her four children and their friends did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mish is mushroomwonderful! December 5, 2013
W.W. Whether you like mushrooms to eat or not, You will Love Mish the Mushroom man. Cute story that presents a problem most of us have to deal with at one time or another. Love the ending. I read this to two little girls ages 5 and 6. They were so impressed they drew pictures and still ask about Mish.

5.0 out of 5 stars A story that stays with you! April 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Having known the Mish the Mushroom Man story for most of my life, it is wonderful to finally have such a beautifully illustrated and expanded book to hold in my hands, and share with others! I had always told the story from memory, but children will love to look at the bright, colorful pictures to go alone with it! Truly a classic, and must-have for any home with children. The story has a lesson in acceptance and loyalty, and readers can relate to the feeling of being left out or ridiculed for being different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh art, fun story, old-fashioned values July 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The story has old-fashioned values of friendship and working together with a fun telling and brilliant illustrations. The characters are endearing (who knew snails and mushrooms could be so kid friendly- besides kids?!) I enjoy this author/illustrator's WHOLE series, it's quite a kaleidoscoped world through her character's eyes!
