Join us for a fun event with Bainbridge Island author Laurie B. Arnold! Her middle reader book, Hello There, We've Been Waiting for You, is a great addition to any young readers shelf!
When Madison McGee is orphaned and
forced to live with her wacky grandmother in boring old
Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, she’s pretty sure
nothing will ever be right again. Her grandmother is
addicted to TV shopping shows. Her only neighbors are a
crazy lady and a vicious junkyard mutt. And she misses her
old life something fierce. Could it get any worse?
jeans and T-shirt kind of girl, Madison refuses to be seen
in the “cupcake dresses” her grandmother tries to get her
to wear. Everything changes when a MegaPix 6000 TV
mysteriously shows up on her doorstep. With the accidental
push of a button on the remote control, Madison teleports
into a dizzying world of lights, cameras, action, and
peril. But with the help of a little magic, she discovers
that things aren’t always what they appear to be, and that
life can actually get better in a brand new way.
Arnold lives on a rocky beach on
Bainbridge Island. In addition to “Hello There, We’ve Been
Waiting for You!” she’s
written and designed over 50 children's interactive computer
original characters such as Putt-Putt and Fatty Bear for
Entertainment and Huggly for Scholastic, as well as classic
Madeline, Little Bear, Harry Potter, Clifford the Big Red
Dog, SpongeBob, and
Mr. Potato Head. She’s also written scripts for animated
children’s television shows
including DRAGON TALES for PBS.
