Danny the Dragon – A Judge’s Commentary

Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy was entered in the 17th Annual International Self-Published Book Awards.  Below I am sharing with you a wonderful, professional judge’s commentary on the book:

“What a terrific cover illustration!  Danny the Dragon is wonderfully drawn and is sure to appeal to kid readers; Skipper and Jimmy are wonderfully drawn, too.  The interior illustrations are as wonderful: bold, bright, comical, full of amazing detail, quirkily fun – wonderful for the story and wonderful on their own.  The story itself is delightful.  What child wouldn’t be intrigued by a talking shell – that turns out to house a talking dragon?  Kids will love that the mother very calmly and casually invites Danny and Skipper to stay for dinner and even agrees to let the dragon spend the night.  (They’ll wish their own moms would be so accommodating.)  Danny is loveable and polite (a nice, subtle lesson in manners for the kids reading this book); Jimmy and Sally’s reactions to his appearance in their household ring true (it’s also nice that they’re shown, without comment, cleaning up after themselves – a nice lesson for kid readers that is done subtly enough to not seem like a lesson).  The story sets up itself for a series of future adventures.  Children will enjoy reading about Danny again and again.”

Tina Turbin on the Radio Again!……For You Single Parents Too!

I will have a live interview with the wonderful Joanie Winberg on her radio show the evening of Wednesday August 5th at 6PM. We will be covering some interesting statistics regarding kids, reading and the family. The approach in which Joanie interviews is delightful and I know you will want to listen, especially you moms. The title of her show is “Single Again, Now What?” Do not be misled as this show is for EVERYONE and the subjects we are covering are for anyone who cares about family, motherhood and our children. You do not have to listen but if you could care less about any of those topics, well I am dearly sorry for you.
