I Am Tama, Lucky CatNew author Wendy Henrichs had two children’s Wendy Hendrichsbooks released in 2011.  With pictures by award-winning illustrator Yoshiko Jaeggi, "I Am Tama, Lucky Cat" (Peachtree) retells the 17th-century Japanese legend behind the beckoning cat figurines commonly displayed in Japanese shops and restaurants.  Illustrated by accomplished artist John Butler, "When Anju Loved Being an Elephant" (Sleeping Bear Press) reveals how a lonely elephant no longer young enough to work in a circus or reside in a zoo finds friendship at last.  Always an animal lover, Wendy lives in Iowa City with her husband, two sons, two cats, one dog, and whatever stray wildlife manages to slip into their 88-year-old home.
