New Release: Too-Clever VIII: Kacie's Chicken and Dumplings



I'm so excited to announce the release of the 8th book in the Too-Clever series, Kacie’ Chicken & Dumplings. Early reviews have been awesome - I'm told the love the chapter book format and readers love how the character grew and developed from when she was first introduced. Here's a bit about the book:

http://www.amazon.com/Too-Clever-VIII-Chicken-Dumplings/dp/0991187954/ref=sr_1_11?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1425974320&sr=1-11&keywords=julia+e+antoine

Ten, almost eleven, year old Kacie went on a no dinner strike when her parents refused to prepare her favorite meal, Chicken and Dumplings. She had tried tears, tantrums, being a goody two-shoes, but nothing worked. So now, she has resorted to this hunger strike.
After two days on the strike, she would have given up already had it not been for the time she spends on the telephone with her best friend, Holly. Holly gave her encouragement which kept her going. She didn’t know what she would have done without Holly. She shared everything with her. They were inseparable, that is until a new boy, Paul, moved into the neighborhood and began attending their school. Now Holly had no time for her, she was more interested in talking with Paul. Unfortunately, Paul was interested in talking with Kacie, what a dilemma. All Kacie wanted was to have chicken and dumplings for dinner and have her best friend back. Why do things have to be so difficult?
In this eighth installment in the Too-Clever series, young readers will once again relate to Kacie’s growing pains as she copes with everything, from learning to make do, to almost losing her best friend to secret crushes.
 
You can pick up a copy at, Too-Clever.com, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and ENVISION School Publishing.

Too Clever VI: Jason's Eagle

 

The sixth installment in my Too Clever Series is finally out.



Read a brief description here:





On the shores of Long Island Sound, near the Connecticut River, lived a young boy who was so fascinated with the American Bald Eagles that fished in the waters near his home, he spent every free moment he had watching them. Everything about the bald eagles fascinated Jason, from the way they flew in the sky to the way they hunted for food. Even the way they built such huge nests grabbed his attention. No other bird flew like the bald eagles. To ten year old Jason, the bald eagle was awe-inspiring. No other bird species commanded such respect when in flight mode. The eagle’s every movement was graceful and regal, even to the way it turned its head to look at him, and it did look at him as he gazed at it through his binoculars.

Too Clever V: Timothy and The Man In The Moon

After months of waiting, Too Clever V: Timothy and The Man In The Moon is finally out:



Seven-year-old Timothy Peppin was excited about his upcoming birthday. He’d been waiting for this day it seemed like forever. He was turning eight in a couple of days, and ever since he was five, he had been asking his parents to take him to the Moon. They had repeatedly told him he was too young, but now that he was turning eight, he believed he was old enough to make the trip. He had no knowledge of what was involved, but his parents were able to do 'most anything, so he was counting the minutes until the great day—the day he turned eight—the day he may finally get to go to the Moon.
