Virginia Neil was born in Tucson, Arizona and then moved to Portland, Oregon in 1980. Her inspiration for Coconut Jack came from her own true life adventures with her little Manx cat named Jack and two twin little girls named Annie and Lizzie whom she lovingly took care of for years. Those experiences led to her deep appreciation and love for children and animals. She continues to dedicate her time and effort in order to improve the lives of both.Review:
"What a wonderful story for young children; beautifully illustrated and a true delight! Being a teacher I know how important it is for young children to read and learn from their reading. This book does just that! It's an easy read and I would highly recommend it for primary teachers. Their students would benefit from not only hearing the story but from the expressive illustrations. I will gladly purchase the book for our school's library!" - Mrs. Becky Feagan, 4th grade teacher, St. Mary's School, Bellevue, NE
"I enjoyed the book. I think that highlighting the color words is a good idea and would make the book a good teaching tool. I love the illustrations of the animals -their facial expressions are wonderful." - Mary Ellen Reckmeyer, librarian, St. Mary's School, Bellevue, NE
