Author Debbie Roppoloabout this book: Blurb: Amelia Frump has a problem: an overactive imagination that sometimes gets her into trouble. One night, as the winds howl through the treetops, Amelia sees a spooky, bony finger tapping on the glass outside her bedroom window. Can her wild imagination save her in time, or will she be the final ingredient in a Grubby Sock Casserole? (ages 4 -11 years old)

"Why did you write your story? " is a question I'm asked the most about my children's book, Amelia Frump and her Peanut Butter Loving, Overactive Imagination. My reason is simple. I wanted children to realize hours spent in front of a computer or television isn't necessary to have a good time. New friends are made, adventures are everywhere, great new masterpieces are created, just by using their imagination.

But like the main character, Amelia Frump, I too had an overactive imagination that sometimes caused trouble, especially at bedtime.Monsters lived under my bed, just waiting to yank me behind the dust ruffle and turn me into cold, rancid oatmeal.

One night, after seeing me leap into the middle of my bed and bounce onto the floor (for what seemed to be the 1,000th time) my mother began helping me (probably to save her sanity and avoid an emergency room bill) use my imagination to beat my fears.

That is my second reason for writing the book. During their childhood, kids might experience a fear of the dark, nightmares, or both. I want my readers to realize in addition to using it for creativity, the imagination can be used to empower themselves and change the outcome of nightmares to their advantage.

 Amelia is Anything but Frumpy

So much of the time, children have fears that trouble their sleep, whether it be a recent move, new school, or, as in the book, unidentifiable noises in the dark. The author did a wonderful job of helping the reader understand the importance of imagination, and how to implement it. [by Tara]
