If you're looking for something to do with the kids this cold weekend, check out the program the FRIENDS of the Doylestown Library are offering on Saturday, Jan. 26, at 1 p.m. in the Pearl Buck Room of the Doylestown Library.
Debbie Dadey, author of numerous children's books, will be there to introduce her new book, Danger in the Deep Blue Sea.
Ms. Dadey was a first grade teacher, then a librarian. While teaching, she realized she wanted to write a book for reluctant readers.
Her first book, Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots, was written with a fellow teacher, Marcia Thornton Jones. Since then, these two women have collaborated on more than 125 books, with sales of over 47 million copies. Debbie has sold 154 books. She lives in Bucks County with her husband, three dogs, and three children.
Danger in the Deep Blue Sea is part of her Mermaid Tales series.
Here's the blurb from Amazon: "Late-breaking news from the Trident City Tide: There have been shark sightings in Trident City! No swimming alone! Pearl's father even hires a Shark Guard to escort her to school.
Pearl starts stirring up lots of trouble with anything that has to do with sharks, even denouncing the skeleton Kiki has in her room. And then, to make matters worse, Pearl accuses Kiki of stealing her precious pearl necklace! And though the undersea waters are indeed filled with danger, Pearl just might discover that true friends can provide a sense of safety!"
Warning: "Beware! We'll be making sharks!"
The program is free and there will be light refreshments.
