About the Book

What if you could photograph
a large wild animal up close...

...and a children’s storybook
unfolded right before your eyes?

As a published photographer, Roxanne Lutgen seized the opportunity to bring the antics of My Backyard Buddies to the minds of young readers. Using an interactive and easy-to-read style, the young reader can study Knobby the Deer at close range as he grows from a curious fawn into an adolescent buck.

With vivid, colorful photographs, this story will captivate toddlers to beginning readers by drawing parallels between animal and human childhood, and by illustrating Knobby’s survival through all four seasons.

Roxanne is a CPA and a freelance photographer, selling greeting cards and photographic prints.

About the Author

Roxanne Lutgen makes her home with her husband and children in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, where the abundance of Northwoods water and wildlife creates a natural photo studio. Proud to be lifelong resident of the “Dairy State”, she credits her love of the outdoors to her farm girl upbringing. By capturing humorous behavior of animals in their natural habitats, Roxanne makes reading fun and educational for children and adults of all ages. All photographs presented in this book are Roxanne’s original work. Reprints are permitted only with permission from the author.
