This is another picture storybook written by my friend, Shannon Mercer, who also wrote The Duck Who Lost Her Quack.
Sammy the cat is sensitive, and when a new animal on the playground does not say hello back to him, his sadness overwhelms him. Will Sammy be able to get over his sadness and see what is in front of him?
Check out Sammy's Rainy Day - And How It Went Away and get ready for Shannon's next book, Every Bunny's Different, which I will post about soon!
Took some pics of Raxie in her dress featuring NZ birds, and decided to include her friend, a plush Kiwi!
Here's a better shot of her dress, made by her grammie. ;)
I've booked a booth in the (new) indoor KidStreet area of the Word on the Street literary festival! Copies of my soon-to-be-published picture storybook, "Beverlee Beaz the Brown Burmese" will be available for purchase -- signed by me, the author, Alex Zgud, the illustrator, and Beverlee, too! Check out our web listing in Word on the Street!
All you have to do is download a story during March and send a short review of the story (approx 30 - 50 words) to Alfie Dog.
One lucky reviewer will then receive £100 and two runners up will each win one of the short story collection books available from Alfie Dog as either a paperback or ebook. The winning entries will be the best constructed reviews, not necessarily the most favourable. Aim for honesty, not flattery!
You may enter as many times as you would like during the month - each download and review will count as a separate entry.
Send your reviews to firstname.lastname@example.org including in your email the date you downloaded the story and the purchase number on your purchase receipt.
If you would like to review one of my stories, you can download and read either The Kiss (fantasy/modern fairytale) and/or Jason and Jake (a story for young children, plus an illustration by Kevin Risk!)
Any reviews entered may be published on the Alfie Dog Limited website and posted to the Facebook page.
