Published by Second Story Press
Written by Anna Morgan & Dr. Rachael Turkienicz
Illustrated by Heather Castles

It was fun seeing on Chapters.Indigo.ca today that my 10th children’s book, “My Worst Best Sleepover Party,” is printed and in the shops in Canada! It is a pretty cute story and was fun to illustrate, I’m happy to see the finished product online.

Here’s what the Chapters.Indigo.ca writeup says about the story :

“Rose decides to have a sleepover party for her birthday. What she thought was a great idea turns into a nightmare when the two most popular girls in the class declare they won'’t attend if Rose insists on inviting her best friend, Stacey. To make matters worse, they convince the other invitees to stay away too. Rose tries to work through the problem herself before confessing her distress to her mother. Rose’’s mother suggests a meeting with the teacher, but — just as Rose suspected — this only makes the situation worse. Young readers will empathize with Rose and identify with this all-too-common problem as Rose tries to find a way through the tangle of conflicting emotions she feels — loyalty to her best friend, but wanting to have all her friends to the party. Authors Anna Morgan and Dr. Rachael Turkienicz deal with bullying head-on in this illustrated easy-to-read chapter book that helps children deal with this pervasive schoolyardproblem.” Second Story Press
