Local professional writer Judith Wolf Mandell has recently written Sammy’s Broken Leg (Oh, No!) and the Amazing Cast That Fixed It. It’s a whimsical book for glum, grumpy kids in a clunky cast…for children curious about life in a cast…and for kiddos who aren’t real happy about a prolonged recovery from any condition.
The book was inspired by her granddaughter’s mostly miserable month in a chest-to-ankle cast to heal a broken femur when she was two years old. Mandell “vowed to create a book that’s entertaining, encouraging and educational”. So she did and it’s been a best seller.
Filled with bright, quirky illustrations, the book has earned endorsements from pediatricians, psychologists and educators. Author Judith Wolf Mandell and illustrator Lise C. Brown live in Nashville; graphic designer Gwyn Snyder lives in Murfreesboro.
