- ALICE & HERMAN: The Adventures Begin
- The bedtime stories of Alice and Herman began when our daughters were little girls. I created the adventures about Alice, a lonely 4 yr. old that needed a friend and a magical bedbug named Herman. He befriended Alice and took her on adventures she could never have imagined. After Alice magically shrunk to Herman’s size, they flew off atop Buddha Bird all over town with Gracie Grasshopper and Adam Ant. As new adventures unfold, Herman will bring along more friends for those magical trips. My girls looked forward to these adventures, and years later our four grandchildren were caught up in them just as their Moms were. So, come along and enjoy the fun and friendship that develops between these most unusual characters.
