Melinda Braun - Luella
by Melinda Braun
When two sisters find an orphan duckling in an abandoned nest, they take it home, name it Luella. The girls introduce her to the dog, Pancake the pug. Luella imprints on Pancake and grows up thinking she is a dog, so the sisters do their best to teach Luella how to be a duck, namely by trying to teach her to swim. But Luella has her own ideas, and does not take like a "duck to water". In the end, it takes a special teacher to show her who she really is.
Melinda Braun has been doodling ever since she could first hold a crayon. Her first picture book, Luella, was published by Savage Press in 2007. Currently, she has finished the first book of her YA novel series, and is actively searching for literary representation. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband, two spoiled cats, and eagerly awaiting the birth of her first child. She can be contacted through her blog to do any book readings/signings at schools, libraries, and/or bookstores.
