Masterfully crafted by Vera I. Roberts when she was aged just nine, ‘Perky Girl: The Amazing Life of Bienna Molo’ takes young readers deep into the life of Bienna – from preschool to old age; a life story told through the eyes of a child. Roberts’ creation is one of the few books that speaks directly to the hearts of young children, containing a wholesomeness that no adult author could ever capture.
Camden, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/20/2015 -- While nobody will deny the timeless appeal of children's literature, there's a natural disconnect in books written by adults, intended for an age they can barely remember. But – of course – there's an obvious lack of children coming home from school and moonlighting as authors.
That's far from the case for Vera I. Roberts. Now eleven years-old, Roberts has finally published a compelling children's book she penned two years previously. What better way to captivate and inspire children than with an adventure written by one of their peers?
It's all wrapped up in 'Perky Girl: The Amazing Life of Bienna Molo', the first in a new series of books that creates a true bond with its young audience.
The book follows the main character, a girl named Bienna, from preschool through college and into old age. Bienna is bright, talented, and always sticking up for doing the right things. Bienna goes through typical struggles, changes and high achievements during elementary school and early high school to emerge as a basketball star, Teen Club President, and overall extremely popular young woman. Her life winds down in sequels 1 and 2, where Bienna attends and graduates college, gets married, and lives out her life on the delightful pages of this most extraordinarily crafted novella. Written by a child for other children, this book has a quality of innocence that can only be described as fascinating. Enter the realm of Perky Girl Bienna Molo, and you will find a most enjoyable world indeed!
"The great thing about Vera's work is that it can be enjoyed by anyone aged from five to fourteen, and can be utilized as everything from a simple bedtime story to a powerful educational tool in the classroom," explains Debra Roberts, the author's mother. "It has a certain innocence and wholesomeness to it that books written by adults can't match, giving children what they really and truly want in a story."
Continuing, "More children are making time to read, ironically at a time when there's a severe lack of relevant good quality books out there for them. Vera wanted to fill this gap with something for children, by a child. She sees the world and humanity in a very unique and special way; it's sure to resonate with every other child out there."
Roberts is busily at work writing books two and three, with the next volume due for imminent release.
