Dar Bagby of Brimley is a literary illustrator. Her sister, Janet Beasley of Astatula, Florida, is the author of a 6-volume series of fantasy books for young readers calledHidden Earth, with Volume 1, MAYCLY containing more than 70 of Dar’s illustrations in black and white. On Thursday (5-17) Dar did a presentation in the Brimley School library at the invitation of librarian, Esther Waters. Dar read aloud one chapter of MAYCLY, which was released this past February, along with a companion book (The Chukkons Say, “Ye Need ta Be a-Seein’ Maycly”) containing all of Dar’s illustrations and maps, full-sized and in full color, some of which were presented via a slide show for the students.

The books, which are being sold internationally, may be purchased on, and they are also available at the Four Seasons IGA Market in Brimley and The Berry Patch Bakery & Restaurant in Paradise. In addition, they are for sale on the following web site: along with all sorts of paraphernalia (clothing, tech accessories, drink ware, pet T-shirts, jewelry, blankets, clocks, tote bags, etc) all displaying your favorite characters, both Good and Evil.

Dar has a standing invitation at Brimley Elementary School to promote her and her sister’s books as the volumes are released. She and her sister will be doing three local area book signings (Bayliss Public Library, Four Seasons IGA Market, and The Berry Patch Bakery & Restaurant—details will be available at a later date) when the author visits Brimley in late August/early September. Books will be for sale at the signings, and books that have been purchased previously will gladly be signed if brought to the events.
