PIPPY'S WISH CHILDREN'S BOOK


FIVE MINUTES WITH:  Maddie Ryan, local children's author of PIPPY'S WISH

 
WHAT IS PIPPY'S WISH ABOUT?

Pippy is an Angel-in-Training in Junior High. She can’t wait to graduate to High School, so she can earn her wings, fly on her own and be considered a cool teen angel.

Pippy is quirky, mischievous, lovable and enchanting, and those are all great traits to have, except she’s also impulsive and her initiative and inventions can get her into trouble. Most times her quick thinking and humor gets her out of trouble.

Except in her Pippy’s Wish adventure, it's gotten her INTO trouble.

Big trouble.


WHICH AGE GROUP IS IT GEARED TOWARD?
Pippy’s Wish is cross generational, as I have heard from readers of all ages. Adults as well as children enjoy this book. Children ages 8 and over can read this chapter book on their own. For the younger children, I think it’s best for an adult to read with them.

 
ANY HIDDEN MESSAGE IN THE STORY?

Be careful what you wish for is the main message. Readers have communicated to me that they felt there were many other messages. The main one readers have come away with were; that it was okay to be different, and that wherever you are in your life and whatever you do, there is always someone who will have your back and be your cheerleader. Friendship is also a strong theme.


IS IT BETTER FOR GROUP READING ALOUD OR INDIVIDUAL READ?

I think it works well for both. As a group, it is fun to hear the different points of view from the children as to what they think Pippy should do to get out of her predicament(s). As an individual read, it allows the reader to escape into Pippy’s world with laughter and also edge of their seat suspense, to find out if Pippy will get herself out of trouble.



WHERE CAN PARENTS GET A COPY?
Pippy is sold on Amazon worldwide at a very affordable price of $0.99. Parents can purchase an e-book version at any Amazon site. For example if in Canada, they would go to Amazon.ca, or they can purchase through Amazon.com.


Paperback versions of Pippy’s Wish are available at Amazon.com only.
