Dudley's Solo

Dudley's Solo
Tiffany Alexander (Author)
Jeremiah Carstarphen (Illustrator)
Whether you were the lanky redheaded, freckled face girl with glasses or the chubby, big-eared boy with braces, we've all been teased for being different. In fact, as many as half of all children are bullied at some point during their school years, and at least 10 percent are bullied on a regular basis, according to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP).
However, children's author Tiffany Alexander believes it is possible to teach children to embrace the qualities that make them different. In her new children's book, "Dudley's Solo" (Alexander Vision LLC, March 2009), Alexander reveals how positive attitudes can change the way we tackle obstacles in our lives. She speaks to kids and parents alike on embracing our differences, being thankful for our God-given talents and realizing the importance of helping others. "Growing up visually impaired had a tremendous impact on my life," says Alexander, who was legally blind until middle school. "I could do what most of the kids could do, but I always had limitations. As hard as it was to be different, I gained inner-strength and the desire to persevere no matter what."
This great children's book teaches some invaluable life lessons. "Dudley's Solo" encourages kids to have self-confidence and to believe in themselves, embrace their differences, never give up on something you really want, and to find the positive lesson in every challenge they are handed.
I love the special message behind this touching story. It's a great read with a very positive message that anyone would enjoy. We highly recommend this great read!
Alexander is currently working on the next book in the Children's Band series called "Ebenezer Opens a Savings Account." For more information, please visit
