Thelma and Ziggy

My latest ebook for children is now out, and is titled “Thelma and Ziggy”. The sub-title is “The butterfly who couldn’t keep her mouth shut.”

Thelma and Ziggy is an entertaining and educational color picture book with lots of large black and white pictures for children to color. Thelma Sludge is a rather plain-looking butterfly with a bit of an attitude problem. Thelma’s greatest desires are to be famous, and to have everyone notice her. She leaves home to become famous, but instead meets Ziggy Plopp. Ziggy is a fairy, who can have a bit of an attitude himself at times. Thelma tells Ziggy to make her famous, which he does, but later Thelma wished she’d kept her mouth shut. A short fantasy story for children 2 to 7 years old, and those young at heart.
