These sets would make great gifts for young readers. If only there was a holiday coming up that encourages gift giving. Hey, wait a minute. Christmas is in less than two months! Now we’re cooking! If you don’t win the contest you can buy the books online at Barnes and Noble and several other book retailers. Ready to meet author Debbie Wideroe?
The Author – Debbie Wideroe
Debbie Wideroe has always been a writer. She started writing at the age of six but this is just one of her many talents. She also founded and runs her own marketing company, is a Visiting Professor at Pepperdine University, holds a Master’s Degree from Harvard, has written and produced nationwide children’s TV specials, and even worked for Warner Bros. Anyone involved in promoting Looney Tunes is alright with us! Debbie studied under Dr. Gerry Lesser who is best known as one of the co-creators of Sesame Street. It seems like writing children’s books was always in the cards for Debbie.
Born in Connecticut, Debbie currently lives in California with her husband, son, and two dogs. She credits her father for inspiring her interest in taking care of the environment and protecting wildlife. Famous scientist Jane Goodall also inspired her studies while in college. The Adventures of Camellia N. series started as a dream that Debbie brought into reality for everyone to share in. She plans to release the third book in the series next year.
Illustrator Daniela Frongia brings Camellia’s adventures to life. Like Debbie, Daniela’s passion started at an early age. She showed talent for drawing when she was just four years old. This talent lead her to a degree from the Art School in Italy. Daniela lives in Europe and operates her own art studio.
The Books – The Adventures of Camellia N.
The Adventures of Camellia N. book series circles the globe visiting each continent, the sea, and even outer space. Each book explores the environment and wildlife of a specific region. Bright landscapes and adorable cartoon animals add a stimulating visual aspect to the fact and fun filled adventures. The books’ appropriate reading level is early to mid grade school. The lessons and facts in the books are useful for all ages. This is a perfect combination for bedtime reading. The goal of the series is to educate children and inspire them to become global ambassadors for conservation. We’re giving away the first two books in the series, The Arctic and Under the Sea. Everyone is highly encouraged to seek out Camellia N. on Facebook or Instagram to keep up with future releases.
Camellia N., a pint-sized explorer, travels the world in her dreams. Her first adventure takes her to the Arctic where she meets a ship captain. Captain Lars serves as Camellia’s guide as she encounters the wildlife in the region and experiences a very magical natural event. Camellia is full of questions for Captain Lars who readily answers her with fun information about the Arctic’s inhabitants. Readers will learn about polar bears, beluga whales, caribou, and several other polar animals. Camellia learns that caribou are also known as Arctic reindeer. Then she learns that they definitely don’t fly. Captain Lars says Rudolph was a very unique reindeer. Grab your parka and get ready for an exciting Arctic adventure!
Under the Sea
The Adventures of Camellia N. Under the Sea finds Camellia with her head in a fish bowl! The fish bowl allows her to breath underwater, of course. She also gets to ride a very cool sea scooter which is great daydream fodder. A polka-dot fish named Oscar is Camellia’s guide on this underwater adventure. The sea creatures we meet include a hammerhead shark, dolphins, manatees, and many others. After exploring with Oscar, Camellia N. boards a research submarine. She then travels to the darkest corners of the sea and learns about some incredibly unique sea life. Have you ever heard of spookfish? Camellia N. can tell you all about them! The deep, dark seas make Camellia sleepy. Finally she is back in bed, eager to share her experiences with the world.
The Buddies – Puffy, Bear-Bear, Flippy, & Kiwi
Camellia N. takes her favorite stuffed animals on her adventures. This one of our favorite aspects of the series. Of course, we admit to a little bias. Puffy the puffin and Bear-Bear the polar bear join Camellia on her Arctic expedition. Then, in The Adventure’s of Camellia N. Under the Sea, a dolphin and a sea turtle travel along. After some consideration we chose four Aurora Mini Flopsies to represent Camellia’s travel companions.
Mini Flopsies are only $4.99 each. They come in many kinds of animals and most can be personalized with bandanas at Stuffed Safari. If you choose to purchase these books and stuffed animals for a gift set then adding personalization is a great idea. Now on to the contest!
