Matilda Turnip Coming Soon!

Beth's book, Matilda Turnip's Endless Belly Button is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com.

Congratulations Beth!

It follows the story of a little girl

(with an odd medical condition)



and her dalmatian mouse.


I just wished she'd gone with the original title I suggested:

BEYOND LINT!

I love that in the book there is a mouse that is her friend... after watching all those videos of her freaking out at the rat in your house!

I've already preordered this little goodie. I am excited to read it to my little monst..er/uh..munchkins.

Cute! Congrats on a book Beth! Will your next one be about cute little mice running through the house?

Great illustrations! The littel girl reminds me of Lilo & Stich for some reason - especially that last pic.

Nice of her to include your new house rat in her book. Although I didn't see spots on your rat. Hmm... maybe the one in her book has the plague?

A dalmatian mouse? Are you sure it's not a rat?!!

Petra said...

So THAT is where the island disappeared to! LOL

The book looks awesome! Beth, I see from the link that it is not your first children's book. I am heading to Amazon to check out what else you've got!

Very cool! Congrats, Beth! I'll be looking out for it, so I can share it with my kindergartners. :)

It looks great. I've got it on my Amazon WishList for now, not yet pre-ordered. Just adding what I can to my WishList in the hopes of winning the $25,000 shopping spree (which ends in two days, so I will pre-order after that!).
Congrats!

I have a niece or six who would love this.. one is obsessed with stuff in her toes. I mean she PUTS stuff in her toes..and then tells us why. Great kid. Should be a Fox broadcaster when she grows up.
