Fred Wiginton

Fred Wiginton’s first book was about space creatures living on the moon.    It was ‘published’ by his mom when he was seven years old.

Then, life happened—school, college, a wonderful wife, and four great children.   A career as a quality control manager.    All along the way, Fred drew and painted country landscapes in his spare time and doodled whenever he could.


His latest collection of doodles is now before you, and he is proud to illustrate this wonderful story that will surely delight young hearts and minds.


Fred and his wife live in Whitesboro, NY.
