Florence author shows consequences of revenge through new children’s book
FLORENCE, S.C. — Author Abigail Graham teaches an important lesson about revenge in her new children’s book, “Baboon and Bad Revenge.” This values-centered read will be released nationwide this week.
In “Baboon and Bad Revenge” a mischievous young baboon named Jeffrey has a history of being bullied by his classmate, Kat. He goes against his best friend’s advice and seeks revenge against Kat, a feline with plenty of attitude. Then, Jeffrey learns a hard lesson when revenge bites in the behind, literally.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Graham is currently a high school student residing in South Carolina with her parents. This endeavor is dear to her because she was able to share the experience with her aunt, Dona Locklair — someone that the author has always looked up to. This book begins as a fable written for a school assignment in the sixth grade. Reading the story inspired her aunt to create characters, turning this clever story into a book for children. Locklair is a local artist who has been painting for over 40 years. Graham and Locklair are excited to share this sweet story of forgiveness with their readers.
