Piddle Diddle, the Widdle Penguin, calling out to readers with new adventure

December 12, 2017

"Piddle Diddle, the Widdle Penguin, and the Texas Longhorns," by East Tennessee native authors, Wayne and Ralphine Major, is out by Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc., of Johnson City, Tennessee.

Wayne, along with his sister, Ralphine, created the character Piddle Diddle and set out to write a children's book after the inspiration came to them during a Sunday church choir. Having both grown up on a dairy farm, Wayne and Ralphine have always loved being around and reading about animals. A passion for cowgirls and cowboys led the two to add a wild west adventure to their growing Adventures of Piddle Diddle, the Widdle Penguin series.

Piddle Diddle, the Widdle Penguin, and the Texas Longhorns follows Piddle Diddle and family on a trip to Dude Ranch. At the ranch, Piddle Diddle rides along on a real cattle drive and experiences all the excitement that comes with being a cowgirl.

Wayne and Ralphine have this to say about their beloved Adventures of Piddle Diddle, the Widdle Penguin, "What animal can hold a child's attention better than a mischievous, cunning penguin? Despite her small size, Piddle Diddle, the Widdle Penguin, can be an example to children. Size is an obstacle only if you let it be."

Also in Adventures of Piddle Diddle, the Widdle Penguin are "Piddle Diddle's Lost Hat," and "Piddle Diddle, the Widdle Penguin, Goes to Hawaii."

"Piddle Diddle, the Widdle Penguin, and the Texas Longhorns" can be purchased through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, through Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc., and through the Major's website, majorbooksofjoy.com.
