Janelle Condra is the author and self-publisher of Torii's Adventures, a four-book series of children's picture books. An elementary school teacher for 30 years, Janelle and her husband, Alan, a photographer, have combined their talents to create this entertaining series of books. Living in the small town of Rhinelander in the Northwoods of Wisconsin has given Janelle the perfect setting for writing about her Golden Retriever dogs, Torii and Marli. The engaging text and unique illustrations that blend real photos with computer graphic backgrounds make these books a joy to read and look at. The series starts with Torii's Summer Adventure, about Torii's fun at the lake. In Torii's Fall Adventure, Marli, the puppy, is introduced. In the next two books in the series, Torii's Winter Adventure and Torii's Spring Adventure, Marli is all grown up and joins in the fun of going on adventures with Torii. Children, parents and teachers love the stories and photos.
