Welcome to WillGoPress.com, a family owned, written and illustrated children’s
book website. The author, Gloria Dunshee and her daughter Karne McGary,
illustrator, takes the reader on adventures to fun places like St. Paul Minnesota,
New York City, New York museums, and much more.
The inspiration for the children’s book is a little boy called Will, Gloria’s grandson.
In one book, Will and The Red Ball, the family travels to New York City where Will’s
imagination of a red ball and his curiosity gets the best of him. The book ends
with an educational and happy ending. He learns the importance of parental instructions
while traveling. In another book, Will takes an adventure with a Snowman and has
fun playing around the cold and snow. He sees ice sculptures and snow sculptures
as part of the St. Paul Winter Carnival. Both children’s books are illustrated in
full watercolor and are fun playful rhyming for kids and the whole family.
Those who know me, know I am a 'closet' lover of snow. One of my favorite things
in the whole world is watching the snow fall on a cold day. It mesmerizes me. That’s
why this book was so dear to me. I was imagining how I feel when the snow is delayed
or later than usual in appearing. Little Will is really a lot like me. And the St.
Paul Winter Carnival with the ice sculptures and snow statues is amazing. Who wouldn’t
want to be here? Come along on an amazing adventure with our hero, William, and
enjoy the wonders of winter.
When Will moved to South Carolina, with his parents, I was sad to think he wouldn’t
have the opportunity to enjoy winter and snow and snowmen. And then this winter,
it actually snowed a couple of times for him. It must have had something to do with
the creation of the book. He was delighted to be able to play in the snow, if only
briefly. As you read the book, I hope you, too, will enjoy the wonders of winter,
As you read the story to your children, you get caught up in the excitement as William
and his parents travel to the biggest and most exciting city ever, New York City.
The sights and sounds astound and amaze little William. Clutching his trusty red
ball, William is captivated by all there is to see and do in New York City. Huge
buildings, gigantic statues and sounds unlike anything he has ever heard before
surround the awestruck little boy as he journeys with his family through the many
places there are to see.
Curiosity takes over as William wonders what could happen if he only bounces his
ball just once or twice. His bouncing red ball takes them on a detour that separates
him from his parents despite their warnings to him to stay close by their side.
Wandering on a path led by his favorite toy as it bounces through the streets and
even subways, William is soon hopelessly lost and alone. Can he and his red ball
find their way back to his mom and dad in this giant city? In case you're wondering,
yes, it does have a happy ending.
