The making of the book
A Book Two Years in the Making
What you see today started as a feeling in our hearts. That feeling became a story, then some rough sketches, and then Pink and all her gummy friends started to come to life.
There's a Little Pink in All of Us
We all find ourselves in strange, scary places sometimes. People we’ve never met, journeys we’ve never taken. What Pink reminds us is that, in those moments, maybe it’s only scary until we let ourselves get to know what’s all around us.
Stuck has got to be one of the most adorable and heartfelt stories I’ve ever seen! The story of little Pink and her journey to self-love, acceptance and belonging appeals to all of us…young, old, and everyone in between! I love, love, love this little tale of a gum wall in SLO that has more meaning than one could ever imagine!

This charming story will help you see Bubblegum Alley in a whole new light, and its hopeful message makes us believe that downtown is for everyone — and there is a place for everyone downtown.

"I read this book to my boys. They were sooo focused on it and never interrupted (which is rare!).
I think the storyline and characters were super unique and unlike anything they had seen/read! Bonus: they knew where SLO and Morro Bay were. Perfect gift for tourists/locals!!!"
