Ellie McDoodle Author Coming to Ann Arbor!

Ruth McNally Barshaw, author of Ellie McDoodle: Have Pen Will Travel and Ellie McDoodle: New Kid in School will be at the Pittsfield Branch on Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. Ellie is an eleven-year-old girl who keeps a sketch journal about her family, her school, and her life. Reading these books is like getting into Ellie's personal diary. Her whole life is laid out in sketches and words. Come hear the author tell about how Ellie came to be and how these books are made; maybe you'll want to start telling your own life's story in words and pictures.

This program is for kids K - 5 and their adults. Books will be on sale at the program and the author will be available for signing.


How cool! A friend of mine said this is a great series, and perhaps a Diary of a Wimpy Kid for girls. And perhaps even better!
