Local author and illustrator Eddie Price has just released a new illustrated children’s book titled, “Little Miss Grubby Toes Steps on a Bee!” The book is illustrated and published by former Disney cartoonist Mark Wayne Adams.
“I met Mark in Miami, Fla. at the 2013 Readers Favorite Awards,” said Price. “We both received gold medals in our specific genres – me for best historical fiction and he for illustrated children’s book.” “Little Miss Grubby Toes Steps on a Bee!” is the first of eight books in a “misadventure series.” The story is about a lovable little girl who does not always listen to her parents, and this always gets her into trouble. Each book comes with a clue to Little Miss Grubby Toes’ real name, some discussion questions for parents and teachers, and later, additional activities and coloring sheets on Adams’ website.
Price offers educational programs in the schools, which include reading and discussion, singing, a puppet show with funny and informative dialogue and a program about bees and the good they do. Price will have his books available Aug. 5 through 8, at the Schweizer Fest. Little Miss Grubby Toes herself will be there to meet the boys and girls.
