Lynda Bulla is the author of seven children’s books: “The Old Clock on the Wall”, “Katydid”, “The Churkendoose”, “Freedom Rings”, “The Little Drop of Water”, “Tony is a Hero” and “Under the Big Yellow Leaf”. Her desire for children to learn through story telling is driving her passion to write “Books with Character”. Story telling is a lost art that is missing from the fabric of many busy families today. In simpler times, children learned how to cope with life from the stories told at dinner tables and around the campfires. Now those hours are filled with TV and video games, without the interaction of children and adults exploring the unknown together. Lynda hopes that these books will be used as dialog starters to help children cope with the many problems that they encounter as they move through this world. Lynda resides in a small farming community in Fresno County. She lives with her husband on a ranch where the open fields have inspired many of the settings for her stories.
Tony is the smallest tractor on the farm. He does his job every day but dreams of being a bright shiny sports car, having fun and going places. Then one fateful day when Tony was working the fields he finds out the being a tractor is the best thing ever.

The old cabin looked odd at first glance, as if it had been constructed by accident. The area surrounding it held far more promise for adventure. Tall pines, winding trails, huge rocks, and flowing creeks spoke to Braydon of unlimited opportunity to explore. He still had his doubts about this vacation. His dad was deployed, and it was just his mom and younger brother, Jace. Two whole weeks without video games. Moms don’t know about exploring and adventure? Here, Braydon would learn to fish, explore, imagine, be self-reliant, and the difference between real adventure and virtual. He would solve a mystery, have fun with his brother, and learn his mom was way cooler than he knew.
“Serve and protect” is the motto most police live by. And the geese, police on Harrow’s farm, are no exception – catching thieves, finding the lost, responding to emergencies, controlling unruly mobs, and solving mysteries.
