Kroon, an artist, woodworker, gardener, avid reader, poet, devoted writer and author, has completed his new book “Sittin' in My Garden (Waitin' for the Jellybeans to Grow)”: a vibrant, expressive compilation of both poem and prose. This work depicts the fun and beauty of words and the imagination.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Kroon’s entertaining book is the perfect read for children and adults alike!

In the world that is of Kroon, readers will meet characters like Billy the Squid (and his seahorse sidekick Sid). They will be introduced to “Be on Time, Bill” and even take a boat ride through a bowl of vegetable soup. Pass the carrots, potatoes, and peas, but hold the onions, please!

And when Kroon is in his poetry and prose phase, the reader will find him picking his “knows.” He knows how to make a boa constrictor cake, and he knows never to stand under a blue galoo, for goodness sake!

Kroon expounds, “Some may ask, ‘Kroon, how do you think of such things?’ Easy, a little gnome lives in my head. He tells me when it is time for bed. He reminds me to tie my shoes and think goofy things when I am writing too. He tries to catch me when I fall down, and for my birthday, he became a clown. But when my head aches, yes, alas, I put my gnome out on the grass. So if you don’t like prose or poem, don’t blame me; blame the gnome. He probably wrote them because I wasn’t home. So now you know.”

But why the title of the book Sittin’ in My Garden (Waitin’ for the Jelly Beans to Grow)? Well, mostly because not only are jelly beans the author’s all-time favorite candy, but they are also a fair and favorable representation of the prose and poems herein. Like the jelly beans, his writings are colorful, varied, and capable of either bringing a sweet and new memory or reminding the reader of an old one. Perhaps something from the reader’s childhood or maybe their children’s or grandchildren’s childhood. That’s why these poems and prose were written for the young and not so young. For all ages.

Kroon concludes by saying, “And not to worry, there is no mentioned politics, religion, nothing sexual or any curse words, just goofy G-rated fun for all. Enjoy.”

Readers who wish to experience this amusing work can purchase “Sittin' in My Garden (Waitin' for the Jellybeans to Grow)” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
