Once again Ann Ramsey creates her own distinctive brand of magical realism through digital imaging in Just Be You. Honey the Cocker Spaniel is the star of this quest for self esteem. She is surrounded by ducks. So naturally she tries very hard to be a duck. One day she looks in the mirror and sees someone very different. She begins to explore what makes her unique.

Ramsey weaves the story into the enchanting illustrations with her trademark poetic charm and grace. The result is a timeless fable for all ages. 

Readers young and old alike will delight as Honey leaps off the page and grabs hold of their hearts. What a face! What a range of emotions! What an actress! Honey definitely has a future on the big screen. Join in this adorable pup’s crusade. Prepare to fall in love. I hope this is the start of many more Honey adventures to come.
