Ever since Tina Turbin, the multi-award-winning children’s author, released Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy, the first book of her illustrated kids book series, she has been recipient of critical praise, numerous awards and honors, and media attention. The release of her book was followed by that of a Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy iPad and iPhone app, the first one for the hearing impaired, featuring a reading of the author’s acclaimed book with sign language interpretation. Now the author is generating even more media attention with her app than with the debut of her book, as coverage of the groundbreaking product is appearing in some of the leading news blogs in the publishing world, specifically Alice Pope’s SCBWI Children’s Market Blog and MediaBistro.com, the global web resource for media professionals.

As if Tina Turbin, the multi-award-winning children’s author, wasn’t already overwhelmed with praise for the first book in her Danny the Dragon children’s series, Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy, she decided to release it as the first-ever children’s book app for the iPad and iPhone to have sign language interpretation. The author and her publicity team are now working hard to manage the soaring sales and intense interest the iPad app release has stirred up. Despite her busy schedule, Turbin was able to set aside some time to meet with the Hartford Books Examiner for a Q&A interview to talk about the latest Danny the Dragon news.
The multi-award-winning children’s author Tina Turbin has been recognized again for the first book of her children’s book series, Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy. The illustrated children’s book, which is already the recipient of a number of awards, has been awarded in the Purple Dragon Book Awards.
I’m happy to report that Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy, the first book in my Danny the Dragon children’s book series, has been recognized by the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards. The Annual Purple Dragonfly Awards is a contest that seeks to award authors of books that appeal to children in all age groups. On their website, they say that they search for books that “inspire, inform, teach or entertain.” I’m honored that they have found those qualities in the story of Danny the Dragon and Jimmy.
