Dr. Huff releases first children’s book

Clown front CoverWhy the Clown Wouldn’t Smile—celebrating the power of being different.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. – The circus is not succeeding. No wonder the clown won’t smile! But a boy on crutches, wearing a funny hat with a green feather in it, has a solution to the problem. Fortunately the circus master listens.

Why the Clown Wouldn’t Smile was published by Asheville’s nonprofit, traditional publisher Grateful Steps. The book is illustrated by a teacher and student at the former Asheville-Buncombe County Orthopedic School, founded to provide for the educational needs of children who faced lengthy hospitalizations due to their developmental handicaps—before the public schools were able to accommodate them.

The Book is available at www.gratefulsteps.org and www.amazon.com. Dr. Huff will have many area book signings. Three are scheduled thus far: Montreat Moore Center, December 4, 2012, 4-6 p.m.; White Horse, Black Mountain, December 9, 2012, 2-5 p.m.; and Accent on Books (Asheville, NC), December 14, 2012, 6 p.m.
