About this product
- DescriptionIt's Fonna's twelfth birthday, and her family has just moved to a new neighborhood. Unfortunately for Fonna, she never approved. I'm so far from my friends, and these street names are strange, she'd sadly complain. Not even the celebration of her birthday can cheer Fonna up. That is, until she receives a rather curious, yet potentially rewarding, gift form her mother that challenges Fonna to make as many new friends as she can at her new school. Will Fonna's attempt at making friends ultimately pay-off, or will she find all of her efforts dashed to pieces? In this third children's book by Doc Colour, Fonna's Change Mantel is an impassioned and devious story with a wonderful rhyming style that is witty and fun to read. Illustrated for the first time in color, Fonna and her friends brilliantly come alive on the pages as their free-spirited personalities uniquely interact, leaving Fonna to calculate the true value of friendship.
- Author BiographyDoc Colour was born on Halloween and grew up in the town of Sunnyvale, California. As far back as age four, he can recall finger-painting huge faces and fat trees, knowing then that he would be creating art for the rest of his life. Doc graduated from San Jose State University with a B.A. in Graphic Design: emphasizing in Illustration. During this time, he created his unique, signature style of illustrating bold, black and white images, which he called ZOPS (visit Doc's website at: www.zops.com). These illustrations soon became a self-titled comic panel published in his school newspaper. The panel combined Doc's illustrations and quirky rhymes with an enlightening moral at the end. As his interest for rhyming and illustrating grew, so did his passion for writing children's books, which perfectly combine his love for words, rhyming, illustrating, graphic design, and telling unusual stories. You can look forward to many more stories to come by Doc Colour!
