Moline, Illinois (PressExposure) April 22, 2008 -- The wind and waves rage violently across the ocean. Everyone is terrified. The news people are perplexed as there was no prediction of a tropical storm. It turns out it's not a storm after all, it's just Twirly Shirley, the girl with the wacky braids that spin every time she gets excited.
A new book, Twirly Shirley In Hurricane Shirley, is soon to be released by Artistic Creations Book Publishing. The book, written by Donna Beserra and Illustrated by Melody Karnes Trone, tells of Twirly Shirley's encounter with a great white shark.
This book is a new version of the author's original, which used actual photographs of Donna Beserra's own children. The new version contains artwork by Melody Karns Trone, who bases many of her illustrations on the actual living stars in the original book.
The book will be available at Borders, Barnes & Noble, (barnesandnoble.com) Amazon.com, through Midwest Writing Center, 225 E. 2nd Street, Suite 303, Davenport, Iowa, and also though other Internet Sources, including twirlyshirleystore.com.
