Childress and team worked with Dianne Lindsey Reeves and Cherry Lake Publishing to conceptualize and contribute to the three-part career-based nonfiction series.
The latest picture book produced by the Childress Ink team, "The Legend of the Fairy Stones," by Kelly Anne White (Morgan James Kids, 2019) is a Barnes & Noble Bookseller Favorite, a Purple Dragonfly Book Award recipient, and a 2020 excellence-in-Craft Award Second-Place Winner from the Virginia Outdoor Writers Association.
