Oakmonte Village, Lake Mary, FL 5/12/11. Oakmonte resident Lillian Brunetti is shown as she purchased the first pre-publication copy of Magical Shoes of Santa's Elves, written and illustrated by author Dorothy Dubel.
Lillian's granddaughter Rachel will be the lucky recipient of the keepsake children's Christmas story book which will be available to booksellers, Amazon and retail outlets world wide in September 2011. The special edition copy will be hand delivered by the author to Ms. Brunetti in June.
The story, written for children from 4 to 11 years, is about Ms. Sally, the neighborhood nanny who arrives at the home of three small children to find it a mess with scattered toys.
She convincingly tells them a BIG secret: a simple finger snap by an Elf can magically turn his curled-toe shoes into skis! Back and forth they ski in the sky - to North Pole and back - before Christmas carrying Naughty and Nice Lists to Santa!
Once again children are reminded of the value of good behavior. "It's a story children will remember" added Ms. Dubel, a Heathrow resident.
Ms. Brunetti also purchased a copy of Ms. Dubel's adventure five-star award winning novel, Escaping Danger, for her daughter in law.
