Clayborn Press is pleased to announce the addition of Celine Mariotti to our publishing family.
Celine has been contracted for two youth-fiction books aimed at a grade school audience. Both books are slated to release during 2017.
The first book, I’m too young to be president! is a whimsical story about a teenager who enters the election as a joke. Due to a clerical error, he’s allowed to run in the election, and he actually wins. The book is a good way to introduce younger children to the political concepts of democratic elections and the US Presidential Election in particular.
The second book, Alexander, My Angel is the story of a young boy who struggles with the loss of a parent. He begins to contemplate suicide so that he can be with the parent again. He sees a young boy – a ghost of a civil war soldier – who teaches him how to cope with the grief and the loss. It’s a compelling and useful tale for children who may be suffering from the loss of a parent or who are dealing with suicidal thoughts.
