Latest Review for Sully's Topsy Tale - Star Search in the Jungle!

Sully's Topsy TaleNew Review for Sully's Topsy Tale!

What’s worse than a giraffe with a sore neck? A singing snake with a sore throat! Meet Sully, the sensational star of Donna Shepherd’s new Topsy Tale. You name it, Sully sings it--solos, arias, and even scats. But what happens when the bane of all serious singers, a sore throat, silences Sully’s beautiful music? Lemon tea, honey…Sully’s well-meaning (and familiar) friends, Chizzy and Dotty, offer up home remedies. Sully’s sure the rest cure will work, but wait! The show must go on, so it’s Star Search in the jungle. Who can stand in for Sully? Will he ever sing again?

There’s a nice message on patience tucked away in this story, and also true friendship. Need to brush up on your musical terms? See the glossary on the back cover, along with a recommendation from a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist. Seems Sully can help children say their ‘s’ sounds! If you’re looking for a warm, bright book that kids will love, Sully’s waiting patiently for a new home.

-- Stephanie Reed, author of The Light Across the River

Sully's Topsy Tale - Reviews

Charmed by a Snake!, June 14, 2010

Donna Shepherd has created another delightful character! Sully the snake is full of personality -- and musical talent! Unfortunately, he must give up singing when he develops a sore throat. It's a good thing he had lots of cute animal friends to help him through his difficulties. By the time he's ready to sing again, he's learned a wonderful lesson about friendship.

Children will love this charming character and relate to his rhyming story. The colorful and lively illustrations add to the fun. They even include hidden hearts for kids to search out! - Diana R. Jenkins, children's author

Sore Throat Silences Snake!, June 10, 2010

Sully's Topsy Tale is a wonderful rhyming story about a solo singing snake with laryngitis. Children will be thrilled as Sully's friends all try to help him with his problem. In the end Sully recovers and discovers in the process that it is good to have friends as they make beautiful music together.

Donna J. Shepherd's rhymes are delightful and have a wonderful message about friendship. Kevin Collier's illustrations are colorful and humorous, and will definitely make children giggle. Donna and Kevin are a winning partnership. I received the book free for review, but it doesn't affect my opinion of the book. I don't recommend books that I don't like.

The back cover includes definitions of musical terms used in the book. I always love a book with an educational element. - Shari Lyle-Soffe, children's author

Helping Haiti - Poodle and Doodle

I received an email from Jack Foster who illustrated Poode and Doodle. He has found a way to help the people of Haiti where ALL the proceeds will go to charity. He and I are donating a copy of the book signed by both of us along with original sketches done while working on the book. The website is http://heroes4haiti.com/ if you'd like to check it out.

Would you take a moment to look over the auctions? By bidding on our book, you'll even get free shipping, so it's a win-win for all concerned and a small way in which we can help the thousands of people hurting in Haiti.
