From the author: Flock of Gerrys- Gerry Loves Tacos. The lyrical comical tale of my real pet seagull’s discovery of tacos & helpful journey of friendship. Gerry the Seagull & his musical animal friends (Tuskadero Slim, Crabirita, DJ LlamaRama, Mr Big on Bass & Salty Raven) try new foods, form a band, make a new friend & sing “The Taco Song” to help Octo & his Octo’s Taco truck. Through my original colorful illustrations and rhythmic storytelling Gerry visits multiple locations around Tillamook, county Oregon including the Cape Meares lighthouse & Tillamook Forestry Center, all places the real Gerry the Seagull would fly.
Flock of Gerrys Gerry Loves Tacos began thanks to the real Gerry the Seagull, a clever & highly charming seagull who visits our home in Tillamook, Oregon on a daily basis & eats his snacks right from my hand. Gerry was such a character, he became my muse & one day I decided to draw him. It was the first time I had tried this style of art & I loved it. I drew him some friends, and some more friends. It was so much fun imagining Gerry's adventures around Tillamook on his daily flights, somewhere along the way their story emerged.
