The third product of my collaboration with former Rosemount High School teacher Chuck Brooks, The Little School that Could: Celebrating 100 Years of Students in Rosemount! tells the now 100-year long story of RHS. It’s a keepsake like no other for any graduate of the school and any member of the Rosemount community.
To those who are just hearing about our four-year collaboration on three books, Chuck Brooks and I are offering all three at a discount. ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas in Rosemount (2013) tells the sentimental tale of a community touched by the Christmas spirit on Christmas Eve. The 12 Days BEFORE Christmas in Rosemount (2014)takes the humor route, following an unlucky character who receives wacky gifts from a mysterious stranger leading up to the big day. Finally, The Little School that Could: Celebrating 100 Years of Students in Rosemount (2016) commemorates the 100th graduating class of Rosemount High School by recounting the history of the school and all the trials it has endured. “100 years later, we are strong. We are one with our community. We ARE the Irish.”
Written by Chuck Brooks and illustrated by André Nelson, this charming twist on the classic “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” story captures the spirit of Christmas in the town of Rosemount, Minnesota.
Chuck Brooks’ and André Nelson’s second book, The 12 Days BEFORE Christmas in Rosemount tells the humorous tale of a Charlie Brown-like character whose life is turned upside down as he receives increasingly chaotic gifts from a mysterious “stranger” on the 12 days leading up to Christmas.
