Parenting: 2nd children's book from NJ author
June 21, 2012 (WPVI) -- Just in time for your youngster's summer reading, here's a new children's book, "The Unhappy Spud," from Turnersville native Evelyn Arena Galson. It's her second effort in this genre.
The book makes use of the sort of rhyme schemes young kids usually enjoy. The story centers around a potato with a secret who needs some advice.
Before his pal the cornstalk can lend an ear (sorry, I had to!), that know-it-all cucumber decides that he has the answer to the spud's difficulties, but then spills the beans (okay, this time, I really do apologize!). Before long, all sorts of vegetables are onto the story.
Will the garden ever be the same? Can vegetables who learn a potato's secret still look him straight in the eye (yep, now I'm really out of control!)? And what about the pesky cucumber - does he get his comeuppance? <p For the answers to these and other tasty questions, you'll have to plunk down $8.99 and get yourself a copy of" The Unhappy Spud." It's 24 pages in paperback, from Tate Publishing, a Christian-based outfit that specializes in family-oriented literature.
Here's the Uhhappy Spud link if you'd like to explore. The book is pretty new and I haven't been able to find any reviews online.
Galson's first book, "The Window to Aunt Evie's World: Funny Poetry for Children," is available on Amazon. Galson is a past winner of the Golden Poet Award from World of Poetry and two Silver Poet Awards.
