More About How to Catch a Frog by Heather Ross
 
 
 
Overview
Much of Heather Ross s creative work has been inspired by her being born into an eccentric family of artists and idealists in a rural corner of Vermont during the 1970s. According to Heather, that environment was defined by stunning natural beauty, creative and innovative living, and daily lessons in self-reliance. It also included equal parts of general dysfunction, a self-imposed but nearly inescapable poverty, and little exposure to basic life skills.
When, as a twenty-something, Heather complained to her mother about a long list of things she had missed out on and that had compromised her chance of ever leading a normal life (immunizations, a healthy respect for authority), her mother waved a hand and replied, Well, you should thank me, because you have a lot of good stories instead. How to Catch a Frog is a collection of those stories, plus others that show Ross's eventual route to success as an artist, entrepreneur, and mother, all animated by Ross s delightful illustrations and how-to instructions."
