Good day! Thursday is blog day, and today I’m going to tell you all about Rose’s new book ‘Where the Sugar Bugs Are’. It was released to her readers earlier this week, and the response has been wonderful!
As you know, Rose created a wonderful character known as Banjo. He’s a young orangutan who is learning about the importance of keeping his teeth clean and what to expect at dental visits. You can read all about the first book in ‘The Tales of Banjo and the Superhero Dentist’ series – ‘Excited Banjo Meets the Superhero Dentist’ in an earlier blog here on Rose’s website.
Of course, all children love to believe in heroes, and what better way to depict dentists than to give them Superhero status! Enter the Superhero Dentist who saves Banjo each time from the dreaded Sugar Bugs!
In this story, Banjo becomes very sleepy at the end of his day. He tells Mama that he feels too tired to brush his teeth. As he drifts-off, standing in the bathroom, he begins to dream about an awesome place known as Mouth Valley. The Tooth Mountains are tall and white, and the landscape is made of all the sweet things one can eat. But, what Banjo doesn’t know is that this paradise is home to some very nasty bugs – the Sugar Bugs. Not to worry; the Superhero Dentist arrives just in time to remind Banjo how to stop these bugs from causing any more damage to Mouth Valley.
With fantastical imagery and a strong message to children about the importance of brushing and flossing before going to bed, this tale is a must-read for all little ones.
In order to help others to get to know about this series, Rose is giving away two ‘Where the Sugar Bugs Are’ eBooks to two lucky winners! To stand a chance to be one of these winners, all you’ll need to do is share the post about this blog on Facebook and tag one of your friends. We’ll announce the winners toward the end of next week.
By the way, did you know that I love to write to children? I have a few pen-pals already; if you think your child would like to meet and receive weekly letters from me, just drop me a line via my page on Rose’s website. I’d reeeally love to hear from them!
Until next time, keep smiling,
Where The Sugar Bugs Are
