Product Description:

Ego was the winning book of our 2015 Super Summer Book Writing Contest. Authored by Avery Batson, then age 13, Ego is the story of a boastful cat who learns the value of friendship over his many trophies. Friends Sandy (a Labrador) and Iris (a bluebird) help Ego see the light after a narrow escape. Ego becomes a hero, but more importantly, he gains a new perspective on his accomplishments and appreciates achieving goals with the help of his friends rather than alone. Avery wrote the story and did the illustrations in this hard cover, full-color book which she dedicated to her friends. I loved the expressions on the characters' faces and how they reflect the emotions in the story. When Avery isn't writing, she likes reading, playing video games and hanging out with her friend from Beep Patrol, who inspired this book. When I spoke to Avery to tell her she had won the contest, I was so impressed with her accomplishments and humility. I hope she will continue her writing and we will see many more stories from this special girl. ~ Sara 15pp, hc
