The Fairy Alphabet by F. Y. Cory

The Fairy Alphabet by F.Y. Cory is one of Sunnyshore Studio’s most popular items. It is a charming example of early 20th children’s book illustration. Three decades after her career opened, Fanny Y. Cory began these watercolors and rhymes in the late 1920’s for her own pleasure. Archived by her family, the mischievous creatures of her imagination now stand revealed in all their magic.  F.Y. Cory is the grandmother of Ann Cory, great grandmother of Jason Dorsey and great great grandmother of Jacqueline Dorsey.

I Remember Fishing with Dad is a children’s picture book written by Jason Dorsey and illustrated by Jason and his dad, Jack Dorsey. It tells the story of a boy who goes fishing with his dad and discovers that the most important thing is not winning the salmon derby or even catching a fish but just being with his dad.

  1. Joyce Linn

    I loved the video!! You have the best parents ever and I’m proud to call them friends. I want to order 2 books for my grandchildren. Being raised on Camano Island was a wonderful experience and living on the island was great fun!!!

    1. Thanks Joyce. I completely agree with you about having the best parents ever and that being raised on Camano was an incredible experience. I’ve got you down for 2 book orders. Thanks so much for supporting us in this way.

  2. Rebecca Anderson Coufal

    Jason Dorsey – Your mother with whom I went to school, sent me an email about your book. I would like to order a copy of the book. I am Richard Anderson’s daughter. Your comments and pictures of fishing with your father are wonderful. Just incidentally, I have a good sized watercolor my mother purchased from your father in 1965 or 1966. I look forward to hearing from you, Rebecca Coufal

    1. Rebecca, So cool to hear from you. I didn’t know our family had a connection to THE Richard Anderson who had won the Derby the time dad came in second place. That only makes the story that much richer. Your dad has a fun and special role in the story. About 1 and 1/2 years ago I was working on the story-line of the book. A good friend who knows how to tell a story said that the book needed just a little more tension. So we added the part in the story about (1) our motor not working at the beginning of the derby, and my (the boys) envy of the other people’s good boats, including the “Trophy” which we made up to be the name of your dad’s boat, (2) after our catching the big salmon, our motor not working and your dad rescuing us by towing us into shore. So while these things were added to bring more tension to the story, the wonderful facts remain that your dad did win the Derby, we came in second. And now, wonderful to know that there is this deeper connection of family and art. I had no idea! Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Jason: Marilyn and I would like to reserve and pick up three copies (Beaches) at your open house at the studio on December 3rd, if that would be possible. Marilyn was one of your Moms classmates and friends.
    We really enjoyed the video this morning, it was fun to watch it and remember the times we have had here too. We live on the beach at Madrona and love it here on Camano Island as well.
