Union Hill Elementary School first graders had the time of their lives when they got to meet Fezziwig, the inspiration for the children’s book “The Amazing Fezziiwig” by Doug Bratt Tuesday afternoon at Pioneer Park in Nevada City. The story follows the life of the 11-year-old golden retriever and his adventures throughout Nevada City.
