Share Article

Meet author Doreen Cronin and children's book illustrator Betsy Lewin and discuss how to get kids geared up for learning as summer draws to a close. Their new book "Dooby Dooby Moo" is to be published August 8th by major publishing house, Simon and Schuster.

Doreen Cronin, "Dooby Dooby Moo" author and Betsy Lewin, "Dooby Dooby Moo" illustrator are available to talk to new parents about all they'll need to know about reading to their children. In addition, this successful publishing duo can talk about what it takes to make it as a kids book author and illustrator.

What? You say you're not familiar with these two? Well, if you've got kids between the ages of 3 and 7 you've most likely read a book that these two worked on. The characters include Duck, a bunch of cows and a harried farmer named Farmer Brown.

The scenario of the latest book is a scene out of reality TV. Duck and his barnyard chums compete in a talent show so that they can win a coveted prize, a trampoline. Imagine barnyard animals on a trampoline!

Here's what Publisher's Weeky had to say about "Dooby Dooby Moo!"

"While children will enjoy the pure silliness of singing animals alone, older readers will appreciate Cronin's tongue-in-cheek asides, such as the footnote about the trampoline being "slightly used," along with a legal disclaimer. Lewin's expansive brush strokes pay further tribute to this tall tale of animals that sing and dance behind closed barn doors. By story's end, the animals have returned to their regular routines, except for the extra "boing" in their song-whose source comes clear in Lewin's closing image of the animals enjoying the well-earned prize. Fans will hope for many more farmyard adventures from this dynamic duo. Ages 3-7."

Doreen and Betsy are available for radio interviews on August 8 and by special request later that week.
