“The Rumble with Grumble: The Epic Adventures of a Turtle…and Some Bees” – Written by Kelsey Wagner - “And so it came that a turtle and some bees set out on a mission to find, if a monster was asked politely a question, would he, could he be kind?”
I have the pleasure of being dear friends with the author of this adorable and unique children’s book. I took the boys to her book signing and was so excited to read it, but I honestly didn’t have a chance to do so for a couple of days, due to our constantly busy schedule. When we finally did get a quiet moment to sit on the couch and crack it open, I was absolutely blown away by the book.
“The Rumble with Grumble: The Epic Adventures of a Turtle…and Some Bees” is so unique! It certainly is not your average children’s book. Engaging and challenging words with more than two syllables are used to beautifully tell the story. – “Then the turtle looked up with grout and conviction…” The illustrations are soft and delicate and the animals of the Forest of Sweven are so adorable. I must admit, I’m quite partial to the “deer who came forth with a decent idea”.
Author, Kelsey Wagner, stated, “What I want to address… plays only a small part in the book, and yet such a major part in the lives of so many. I want to talk about allergies.” She donated all of “The Rumble with Grumble” autographing proceeds to The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. If you are interested in having her read her book at your school or event please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She would be happy to talk about allergy awareness with staff, students or just have a fun reading with your little kids.
