Author Ilene Dudek Launches the Fifth Book in Her Little Ant Series
Presenting the next big adventure in the Little Ant series--Little Ant & the Shadow Bully. This colorful picture book features the lovable little ant and his naughty shadow. When the ant discovers his shadow is a bully, he does everything in his power to end the friendship. But nothing seems to work until he stops running and starts listening. In the end, they choose kindness and decide to work together to make things better for everyone. Ilene Dudek first introduced her Little Ant character in June 2017 through her book Little Ant on the Go. Since then, she has developed a Little Ant series--including five books that tout the zany adventures of one little ant. Each whimsical tale features colorful pictures, bold images, and easy-to-read rhyming words for early readers. Ilene's new book Little Ant & the Shadow Bully continues the little ant's wild journey. In this story, the ant must learn to confront a bully; not with muscle, but with kindness. It is a lighthearted tale of friendship, tolerance, and understanding. Jodi of Nutley states, "My son loved this book as he does all of The Little Ant books. It was such a cute story with a good lesson." Ilene Dudek is a local author with a background in advertising. She enjoyed many years as a copywriter, but when the opportunity presented itself to change her path and follow her dreams, she took it. She now writes and illustrates a Little Ant children's series, inspired by her sons who are always on the go and looking for the next big adventure. Ilene has participated in over 30 local author events, including a book signing at Barnes & Noble, and has been featured on "Spotlight New Jersey" -- News 12 New Jersey. She plans to continue writing her Little Ant series and sharing her books with the local community. Ilene's next event will be at the Nutley Public Library on April 22, 2020 from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm. She will be doing an Author Visit Story Time--featuring a reading of her new book, interactive games, Earth Day activities, and book signing.
