Children’ s Writer Shares
Nanoose Bay author Mary Laudien is having a blast writing humorous, contemporary novels for anyone who loves their pet.
She shares that enthusiasm with young readers at the Wellington Library’s Summer Reading Club Thursday(July 5 ) at 2 p.m.
Laudien, a retired principal from West Vancouver, is writing the third book in her Frenchie series, aimed at nine to 12-year-olds, ages that she believes engage in reading through humorous books they relate to personally.
In the first book, Ethan enlists the aid of his quirky grandmother, and a following of bloggers, to realize his dream of owning a French bulldog. Misadventures ensue, including a bargain dogwash business in his mother’s laundry room, all shared nightly on his blog.
The sequel sees Ethan and his mom with not just one, but two puppies to train .
The books are available at CHAPTERS as well as Nanaimo Maps and Charts.
To register for the summer reading program, please contact the library at 250-758-5544. The Wellington branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library is located at 3032 Barons Rd.
