Written and illustrated by Pat Welsh with photos by Betsy Schulz, published in 2005 by the Friends of the Del Mar Library, ($14.95)
Tells the story of the Del Mar Library Multi-Media Mural, a 92-foot-long creation covering a formerly bare 4-foot-tall concrete wall in front of the library on Old 101. Since completion of the mural in 2002 many visitors to Del Mar have asked about it, so Pat wrote this book to tell the story and explain how it was made. When she sat down to write, however, the book unaccountable turned into a children’s story with several positive messages hidden in it. Adults who read it aloud will learn the step-by-step process of making a multi-media mural for their garden or community. Children will enjoy the pictures and imaginative aspects of the tale. Exudes local color and has already inspired fund-raising projects by other communities.
