X is for Xtras!

Hi Everyone,

Adana here. We’re going to cheat a little today. Debbie couldn’t find any books that began with the letter X so instead she told me to introduce a couple of X-tras.

First up is an awesome book that Debbie edited, AND THAT’S WHY SHE’S MY MAMA written and illustrated by Tiarra Nazario.

finalcoverfile-2

What is a Mama? A mama is someone who is always there for you. She makes you your favorite food, takes you to the park, and kisses your boo-boos better. Some mamas didn’t hold you in their belly, but they will forever hold you in their hearts. Mamas come in all different shapes, colors, and ages, but they all have one thing in common.

They love you!

Pick up a paperback copy directly from Tiarra’s website.

Next up is a little story from Debbie Manber Kupfer from the world of P.A.W.S.

The Great Bobbert has…

Hi Everyone,

Adana here! Debbie informs me that today’s theme is VERY small creatures – that is to say we are going to meet two little mice.

The first is Mario: the Mouse who loved Spaghetti. I’m not really sure what spaghetti is (we don’t have it in Dragon Land), but it sounds yummy! Anyhow you can read about Mario in this book by John Geraci, illustrated by Shelby Lynne.

Pick up this story of a cute mouse named Mario whose love for spaghetti gets him straight into trouble on Amazon in Kindle or paperback.

Hi everyone! I’m here! Today’s the day that my book ADANA THE EARTH DRAGON finally is released into the world. Want to read a sample? Sure you do:

Once upon a time there was a small brown dragon called Adana. Adana was an earth dragon and Adana was very sad. She longed to play with the other dragons, but none of them would accept her as a friend. “It’s because I’m small and brown and boring” she said. “No one wants to be friends with an earth dragon.”

The air dragons would soar through the sky, their wings outstretched. Adana wished she could join them up in their playground of clouds, but she had no wings.

The water dragons would glide effortlessly through the lagoon, playing tag and Marco Polo. Adana yearned to join in their games, but sadly she could not swim.
