CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 28 - May 4, 2000.27 Sussex woman collaborates on new (:hildJ'en's book, 'Corneel' By Trish Vernon Looking for an original, color- ful and playful children's book this spring that an adult, especially dog lovers, can appreciate as well? An ideal selection would be "Corneel the Cavalier," the story of a precious puppy dog as told by Corneel to Janet York, with origi- nal photography by Rosemary Carroll of New York City and Bethany Beach, who also operates Studio 8 by the Sea. This is the first in what will be a series of books about the adven- tures of Corneel, presently the number one Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in the American Kennel Club and owned by York. "'Corneel the Cavalier' is a country dog with kind neighbors, a windmill for a home and excit- ing dreams of fun and friendship," the book jacket explains. "But un- expected changes are in the wind for Corneel. Join this lively pup- py in the first of a series of stories as he faces turmoil to discover his destiny in the big city." Carroll, who specializes in fam- ily and individual portrait photog- raphy took photographs of Corneel in New York City and in Holland, transforming them into vibrant watercolors thanks to computer technology. Carroll's young son Michael is featured in a number of the scenes, as is York, dressed in Dutch garb, and there's even a scene where a Dutch goat is shown riding a pony, a real life situation. The idea for the book stemmed from Carroll's work taking profes- sional photographs of show dogs, with York giving the gift of speech to her precious pup. A respected A.K.C. judge, Annie Rogers Clark termed the book "beguiling...the pictures are superb!" Allan Reznik, editor in chief of "Dogs in Canada," believes Corneei the Cavalier will become a sought after collectible and that the watercolor effect of the illus- trations gives the book "a very Sussex League of Voters meeting draws crowd The April 11 meeting of the Sussex County League of Women Voters, held at Delaware Technical & Community College in Georgetown, drew a crowd of over 50 people to hear a talk by Professor Mark Miller of the University of Delaware. Miller spoke on changing patterns in im- migration as they affect the Delmarva Peninsula and Georgetown in particular. County administration, the clergy and members of the His- panic community were represented and joined in the discussion and question and answer session. The Delaware Humanities Forum spon- sored the" program. On May 9, the League will present Judy Adams of the Adams Fishing Fleet with a talk on and discussion of the lives and problems of commercial and sport fishermen in the area. There is al- ways a tug-of-war between the commercial and sport fishing interests, and the Adams family represents both. The May meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m., at All Saints Church Parish Hall, Olive Avenue, Rehoboth Beach. Meetings are open to the public and there is no admission charge.For details on this or any other League activity, call 856-2199.

Canine Health Foundation. Also enthralled was Bo Bengston, editor of "Dogs in Re- view," who noted that the photo- graphs and painting effect "cre- ate a wonderful, fairy tale atmos- phere. That the book also encour- ages children to like dogs and ed- ucate the more mature reader about responsible dog ownership doesn't hurt!" Carroll and York are now col- laborating on Corneel's next ad- ventures, where he will reside at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City which they hope to publish in time for the Christmas season. In later editions, Corneel will travel to Paris, London and other far-flung places, even along the Yatzee River, as York enters Cavalier championship competi- tions and Carroll will travel with him to capture the scenes. When not busy in this endeav- or, Carroll commutes between magazine shoots in New York City and Bethany Beach, where she spends her summers shooting beach-oriented portrait photogra- phy.
