On Sunday, December 2, at 1:00 p.m., Byrd’s Books will host the talented Bethel author Karen Romano Young! She will be hosting a children’s event about her recent book, Doodlebug: A Novel in Doodles, that will include drawing and art for anyone Grade 3 to adult.
This fantastic kids’ book is written (and doodled!) by Karen Romano Young and has received most recently the 2012 Connecticut Book Award for Children’s Literature.
About the book:
Moving is tough. Being the new kid in school is even tougher. But the hardest thing of all about the move that Doreen “Dodo” Bussey’s family is making is that she suspects it might be because of her. She got into trouble at her last school.
On the drive to their new home, her mother gives Dodo a blank notebook, which she uses to chronicle the move, the first days in a new city, and the ups and downs of starting a new school and making new friends. In the process, she reinvents herself as the Doodlebug. Her little sister seems to adjust to everything so easily—why is it so hard for Dodo?
