About the Author:

Barbie McConnell is an independent self-published author. Marsipity has won a modest independent publishers award. Marsipity is Barbie's first title. The book was dedicated to her daughter, Meredith, who along with her lifelong friend J.K. were models for gifted artist/illustrator Rusty Gregory. Barbie is a student of political science, she loves law, art, music, physics, botany and a good thunderstorm. She is story teller with a passion for children's literature. Marsipiy was inspired by a sweet kindergarten friendship her daughter enjoyed, and Barbie's own experiences with incurable illness, her loyal husband and her love of gift giving.

Review:

In their picture book for readers aged 4 to 8, first-time author McConnell and artist-illustrator Gregory put the treat in trick-or-treat with a sweet Halloween tale that takes an unexpected turn as a little boy discovers his best friend s bewitching secret. McConnell s first children s book is, at its kind heart, a tale of friendship between a caring little boy and a mysterious little girl. Friends for life after Marlin dives to the rescue when Marsipity s chair tips over in class, the pair can't wait for Halloween to roll around. They missed out the year before due to the unfortunate Marsipity, who tucked in tight in bed that night / missed Halloween in all its fright / with chicken pox, a stuffy nose / an achy tummy, and stubby toes / all together in illness throes. This year, to Marlin s surprise, Marsipity delays their much anticipated trick-or-treat adventure after a fortifying dinner of soup and bread by insisting on dessert. Not just any dessert as it happens, but a slice of Halloween pumpkin pie that transforms Marsipity into a little green witch her eyes they twinkle as her nose a wrinkle / begins to crease the end. / Wobbly and wimbly her legs go quite spindly. The transformation complete, the pair sets out on a broom-flying, moonlit romp through the neighborhood, much to Marlin s delight. , McConnell offers a Halloween picture-book adventure to stir the imagination, enhanced by Gregory s beautifully rendered illustrations. --Kirkus
