On this week’s episode of the Lu and Bean Read podcast, children’s book author Debbie Roppolo reads us two chapters of her early reader book Amelia Frump and her Peanut Butter Loving, Overactive Imagination.
Debbie has been published in national and regional magazines, newspapers, and the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Amelia Frump and her Peanut Butter Loving, Overactive Imagination is her first children’s book. She patterned the character Amelia after her own childhood. She is the editor-in-chief of Dancing With Bear Publishing, a field editor for Taste of Home magazine, and an award-winning writer and baker. Married for more than twenty-two years, she has two sons and lives in the Texas Hill Country. Debbie’s favorite children’s books are Beverly Cleary’s novels.
Curious, what happens in chapter 6? You can purchase the book at Amazon.com. The girls laughed out loud many times while we read. They especially loved when the monster stuck the crayons up her nose, of course.
