Childrens' Book on Quassy Amusement Park History

There was the Loch Ness Monster, then Champ in Lake Champlain; now there is Quassilla of Lake Quassapaug in Middlebury Connecticut. A book produced by husband and wife team Janis Hogan (writer) and by Don Farrell (illustrator), former Southbury residents, recounts the tale of a plesiosaurus from Mesozoic era rescued by Middle McFee of Quassmorrah Bay from the icy shores of northern Europe. Their journey takes them through a secret cave beneath Manhattan to a tiny spring-fed lake in CT.
