One day Andy Way, musician, composer, and financial advisor was talking to a friend on the phone, and he said (with nary a nod to the Bard) that he had a great title for a children's book: The Six Lives of Henry the Ape. Andy went on to say that, in his mind, Henry was an ape and would always be an ape. This immediately brought mental pictures to the friend on the other end of the line who happened to be Carol Biederman, retired teacher, musician, writer, and storyteller. She asked Andy if he would mind if she ran with this idea, to which he replied, "Be my guest." So Carol sat down with her computer and developed six lives for Henry, keeping in mind Henry would always be an ape, and periodically checking in with Andy for wisdom and approval. Then Carol met Patricia Cherry, former CEO of a staffing corporation in San Francisco, host of Foothill Forum, a Sierra Foothill interview show on radio KAAD, and, most importantly, artist. One day, while chatting with Carol, Patti casually said, "I've always wanted to illustrate a children's book," to which Carol smiled and handed the manuscript to Patti who brought Henry to life with her drawings.
