SEATTLE, Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle author Maribeth Stephens and local illustrator Nina Seven will showcase their holiday book, Theodore the Tree, Saturday, December 18, at 10:30 a.m., at Santoro's Books, 7405 Greenwood Ave. N, Seattle, Wash.
Theodore the Tree, published by Big Think Media, Inc., is a full-color, 32-page picture book featuring a squat Christmas tree, an ill-tempered holiday ornament and a benevolent star. It's a story about the desire to be accepted, about the sting of rejection, and finally about the discovery of one's unique strengths. Though he is initially shunned because of his many shortcomings, Theodore is soon cherished because of his imperfections.
"The books we publish focus on topics of personal growth," said publisher Arushi Sinha. "We were captivated by this story from the very first. Theodore the Tree carries an undertone of healing, hope and inspiration that speaks to all ages."
Ms. Seven's bold illustrations vividly bring the words to life to turn Theodore into a lovable character who expresses his own kind of holiday magic.
Ms. Stephens and Ms. Seven will sign copies of Theodore the Tree following the reading. Learn more about the book at http://www.theodorethetree.com. For additional details about Santoro's Books, visit http://www.santorosbooks.com or call 206-784-2113.
