The Straw That Broke the Camel's Backpack
Archway Publishing, Mar 10, 2015 - 28 pages
Charley is a camel with a heart of gold. He loves balancing Zanna the Zebra's xylophone on his back when she has a recital, acting as a hurdle for Robby the Roadrunner during gym class, and carrying books for Poppy the Porcupine. Because he is so strong and kindhearted, Charley's friends always look to him for help. Charley doesn't mind. He just wants to fit in with others.
In this colorful and charming children's tale, a little camel with a big heart learns a valuable lesson about the power of give and take, and what happens when he takes on more than he can handle. Be sure to watch for Amelia's upcoming book, Robby the Roadrunner's Ridiculous Race.
