From Picture Book to Chapter Book

So anyway, I published a picture book back in 2010. It was about a young, mischievous boy named Rudy, who wasn't very kind to his little brother and sister. He met up with a creature named Cirrus, and in short, experienced a new perspective on his relationship with his siblings. Well, I've taken that story and adapted it to an early readers chapter book entitled, Reckless Rudy and the Green Vase. Much of the story is the same, but many elements have changed due to the free-flowing chapter book format. If you're interested it's available in Kindle and Print format.

Description: He kicks toys about. He knocks lamps over. He forgets to do his homework. But it doesn’t stop there. He also steals food from his little sister. He makes his little brother do his chores. He doesn’t care one way or the other what anyone thinks. He’ll step on your toes if you get in his way. He’s just reckless, and he gets away with all of it. When his mom brings home a beautiful, old green vase to keep for their aunt, Rudy just can't keep his hands off the priceless antique. He will soon step into a weird and wacky, afternoon adventure of chases and flight. Ages 5-8.
