Children's reading: The Spill by Jacqueline Leigh

  • The Honeysuckle Tea House 8871 Pickards Meadow Road Chapel Hill, NC, 27516 United States (map)

Jacqueline Leigh turns everyday words into spunky stories for children. The Spill is her second picture book. The Children’s Writers Guild described her previous book, Time For Bed With Ford And Red as ‘charming and imaginative.’ Jacqueline and her husband have planted roots in The South where they are raising their two children and two dogs.

The Spill is a silly tale geared towards preschool and school-aged children. The story follows a steadfast young girl and her journey for the perfect cup of milk.

One morning, Faye wakes with an unpleasant feeling of thirst. She is filled with determination for a full cup of milk, one that will surely send the dryness out of her mouth. The trouble really begins as she races to her favorite sipping spot. Can she hold tight to her beloved cup of milk as she comes across many obstacles?
