The book, Nikki Durant and the Terrible Can't is about one little girl who decides to take off for THERE (.... "it maybe tough, but she didn't care"). Along her journey she meets some fantastical monsters including some talking trees, a stomping Moeleet, and, of course, the Terrible Can't. In the end, little Nikki finds the strength and determination to prevail.
David Yeager wrote this story, along with many others, shortly after his daughter was born. The story was inspired by values he wanted to instill in his own child - a sense of confidence, bravery and the ability to overcome any obstacles that got in her way. 30 years later, she grew up and illustrated the book herself so kids everywhere could learn those same lessons she was taught as a little girl.
