Dear Reader,

Anne and I wanted to create a story about a naive owl, and illustrations with lots of details to be discovered. I happen to know someone who collects so much stuff that no one may ever come to visit. As a storyteller, that was inspiring to me. We saddled Owl with this hoarding problem and enlarged it; Owl no longer fits in his own house, and he must even sleep outside. No wonder the other animals think he's weird.

Anne and I worked hard to put every word in the scale, and the illustrations show a lot of details that were all designed with patience, care and love. Enjoy THINGS TO REMEMBER and may you and your readers become befriended with Owl and Squirrel too.
