The first book to be independently published by MoJo InkWorksTM about an adorable golden yellow “ankle-high” French bulldog named Carlos and his adventures in and around New York City.
Brimming with crisp verse and the singing bright colors of Alison’s paintings, it’s no wonder “Ankle Soup” captured the 2009 IPPY Gold Medal for Best Children’s Book.
Features Thanksgiving Day at Grand Central Terminal.

Since my visit last year with Alison, at the 2010 Westminster Kennel Club dog show, I have been thrilled to discover all the joy her super bright and luscious paintings have brought to young and old alike.
Her original oil paintings become the captivating and endearing illustrations for this series of children’s picture books that we are delighted to add to our inventory of works by our customers.
We hope you will find inspiration for your art, in these pages, as well. The real “Carlos” is pictured at the 2011 Christmas Feet charity fundraiser in Bryant Park, NYC, as is Alison reading to her fans at the Three Tarts Bakery, Chelsea.
