Meet a few animals who call Door County home in this charming board book featuring
whimsical illustrations and gentle rhymes. The book also features iconic Door Peninsula
settings and scenery. Created for the 0–4 year old, DOOR COUNTY ANIMALS is a perfect gift for our littlest locals and visitors.
Since 2008, Sally Collins has written hundreds of pieces for Door County Living and Peninsula Pulse. She’s had the privilege to write about an array of local visual artists – from potters to painters to jewelry-makers; musicians – from Pat Macdonald to Emmylou Harris; and writers – from Michael Perry to Barbara Larsen. She also has written about Door County food, events, nature, curiosities, and more. Her fiction has appeared in the pages of both publications throughout the years – “Cherryland Chapters” was a series she penned in the mid-2010s and “Telling Isabella” was inspired by a painting done by local artist Jan Comstock.
