A few months back, I wrote about The Secret Story of Shy Shelly. I thoroughly enjoyed it and let my 8 year old son read it too. He was able to identify with the main character as he is quite shy himself and was encouraged to know that there are other shy people like him out there.
I was informed by OMF Literature recently that the second book in the Shy Shelly series by Justine Hail, illustrated by Elbert Or, entitled Shy Shelly vs the Bully is already available!
Shy Shelly vs the Bully
“In the second book of the Shy Shelly series, author Justine Hail takes her readers even deeper into Shelly’s world. Get to know more of her friends and classmates— from Shelly’s best friend Vanna, the Secret Squad’s decisive leader Patty to the ever-ready for action twins Ryder and Dash— and the class bully Jake. Here, we also find out the secret location of the the Secret Squad’s meeting place in the big Claustro Field Academy Campus. Illustrator Elbert Or has also included a must-try recipe for chocolate cake into the mix, a handy guide on how to fix a hole in your pants, and the best advice from Patty on keeping secrets.” Summary from OMF Lit webpage http://omflit.com/shyshellyvsthebully/”
And as a treat to the readers of this blog… I was able to interview the author of this series, Ms. Justine Hail.
I asked Ms. Justine Hail to share a bit of information about herself…
