Wendi Richards, of Fairfield, is a national finalist in the ABCs Children's Book Competition! Her story, A Little Monster Day, is about a precocious preschooler with an out-of-control imagination. Tanya's pretend play gets her into all sorts of hilarious trouble. But all will be well, because we parents love our little monsters, anyway. You can read A Little Monster Day, along with the nine other finalists at www.abcbookcompetition.org. Each story is posted along with a sample illustration, to give you an idea of how it will look once it is a published picture book. To win this competition and get Wendi's book published, she needs to gather the most on-line votes. Voting runs from Sunday September 21 to Sunday October 5. You can vote once everyday from your home computer. This is an incredible opportunity and I hope you will help Wendi win.
