Get to know children's author Emma Wunsch as she shares the first two books in her Miranda and Maude series, as two young girls who are COMPLETE OPPOSITES meet each other and get into mischief. This hilarious, heartfelt chapter-book series teaches empathy, and reminds us that your very best friend could be one desk away.
About the author: On a scale of 1-10, Emma is about a 6.5 on her enjoyment of hardboiled eggs. She is an 11 about the awesomeness of chickens. Unfortunately, she doesn’t own any. Yet. She does own a dog named Ruby who lives with her in New Hampshire along with her husband, Nick, and two daughters.
Emma got the idea for Miranda and Maude when she was trying to get her then-three old to brush her teeth. Since the three-year old LOVED princesses, but didn’t love brushing her teeth, Emma made up a story about a princess named Miranda Rose who LOVED pink and lived in an enormous castle. To Emma’s amazement, her daughter brushed her teeth and got into bed! Emma told Princess Miranda stories for about a week, but then Emma got bored. Even stories that are simply a way to get a child to brush her teeth need plot! So, Emma told her daughter about a girl named Maude who lived close to Miranda’s castle. But unlike Miranda, Maude HATED pink and really liked. . . HARDBOILED eggs.
After several years of telling her two daughters Miranda and Maude stories, Emma thought she’d write it down. The rest, as they say, is history. Well, actually it’s a book! And soon to be a 2nd book! And hopefully you like the book even more than you like hardboiled eggs!
