Renowned Children’s Author Sheila Duncan, President of Larkin LTD., will present a reading for kids of all ages that will share the adventures of its popular children’s character, Trouble The Dog. The reading and book signing will take place at Wit & Whimsy Children’s Bookstore, 60 Atlantic Avenue in Marblehead, on Wednesday August 28th at 4:00PM. Moms, families and nannies looking for something fun to do with the kids before heading back to school are encouraged to attend.
Sheila Duncan will entertain families with a lively narrative of “Here’s Trouble”, a children’s book that takes young listeners through the magical adventures of this adorable, quizzical little puppy. Attendees will also have a chance to win a free Trouble The Dog house.
According to Ms. Duncan, "Instead of simply creating a children's character, we created a character with a mission. The book helps kids learn how to deal with the bumps that life brings - gently and with humor."
The company has received hundreds of letters from families sharing how Trouble The Dog has become an instant friend and trusted confidante that children gravitate toward....helping them to express their feelings openly and making them feel safe.
Trouble The Dog plush toys and books will be on display and available for sale after the reading. Trouble is one of the few plush toys available in the U.S. that is 100% created and handcrafted in the USA.
