Rudy O'Tooty - Stacy Waibel

Rudy O'Tooty

by Stacy Raye Waibel

The latest offering in the Rudy's Little World series finds our little friend at an Irish Fair.  This beautifully illustrated book features the sights and sounds of a grand celebration!  It includes a song written just for Rudy.

Stacy Raye Waibel is the creator of Rudy’s Little World.  Type I diabetes caused her to go blind.  She has experienced kidney dialysis and three transplants (1 pancreas - 2 kidney).  The pancreas transplant cured her diabetes.  On July 16, 2009, Stacy received a life saving kidney from her husband Wayne.

She started writing about Rudy and his little world in 2005.  Stacy shares her stories with groups, mainly children.  Using her books, subjects are more understandable and less scary.


Author page:


"As a children’s librarian and storyteller, I’m always on the lookout for picture books which tell well for my preschool storytimes.  I was so pleased with Stacy Raye Waibel’s newest book, Rudy O’Tooty.  The story sprightly tells of little poodle Rudy’s trip with his “parents” to the local Irish Fair, and his jolly time with all the dancing and celebration of Irish heritage.  Michelle Gruebele’s lively and festive artwork matches little Rudy’s exuberant tale of this memorable day.  It fit perfectly with a green-themed storytime, invoking the merry mood of St. Patrick’s Day.  Needless to say, it comes highly recommended!"
