DOG BONE SOUP

by Bette A. Stevens

“A compelling family drama set in 1950s and 60s rural New England.” DOG BONE SOUP (Historical Fiction/Ages 11-Adult) is not only the title of Bette A. Stevens’s debut novel; it ranks high among the paltry meals that the book’s protagonist, Shawn Daniels, wants to forget. Plodding through mounting snow and battling howling winds, Shawn is ready to leave it all behind—living in poverty, Dad’s drinking, life in foster care, the divorce, the bullies…. Travel with Shawn Daniels through the guts and the glories of life. You’ll find them all in DOG BONE SOUP, a baby boomer’s coming-of-age saga.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hartland, Maine (January 28, 2013)

GOOD NEWS: There’s a new book out that will inspire kids to meet challenges with patience and persistence.

“I can say without hesitation that [AMAZING MATILDA] is a well written book filled with excitement and adventure.” (dwgodby) Read the full review at http://dwgodby.blogspot.com/2012/07/amazing-matilda-monarchs-tale.html

Matilda becomes discouraged when she is unable to fly during the early stages of her metamorphosis. But, this ‘Amazing Monarch’ never gives up on her dream. Unlike her friends, Matilda doesn’t want to leap onto ledges or bound across fields, she only wants to fly. Matilda’s friends laugh at her because she doesn’t have any wings. They wonder: How can a creature without wings ever hope to fly? While Matilda progresses from egg to butterfly, her friends recall how they felt before they were able to do all of the things they had dreamed of doing. Encouraged by her friends, Matilda learns that if she keeps trying, she can do anything that she really wants to do.

Stevens says, “Matilda’s story is everyone’s story. Meeting the everyday challenges of life at every stage of life is no easy task. Matilda and her friends encourage readers and listeners to meet those challenges. Whether we read this children’s book ourselves or listen to it while sitting on a loved one’s lap, AMAZING MATILDA is a story that never grows old or gets outgrown.”
