Description: Oolala for the magic of light and shadows! When Peppy chases the shadow of her tail into a shadow box and saves Pepito, the shadow puppet from the Big Bad Wolf, Peppy discovers that chasing and gnawing and chewing and barking and pulling are positive talents, in the right place and at the right time. And now she proudly walks in her own shadow. Positive self image building and the good feeling of walking in your own shadow are for everyone! You can take pride is being yourself. Like Peppy.
Children can create a shadow puppet show with the puppet patterns and directions for making a shadow puppet stage.

About the author: Marcia Trimble is a former childhood reading specialist who began a career as a children’s book writer and publisher in 1998. Inspired by a family pet who loved to play with light and shadows, Trimble adds Peppy to her growing repertoire of characters in the Trimble Tots collection.
About the illustrator: A recent graduate of UCLA, and currently working through the UCLA outreach theater program as a drama coach at a Los Angeles high school, Will Pellegrini debuts as a children’s book illustrator. With his delightful cartoon like illustrations in PEPPY’S SHADOW, Will captures the humor of Peppy’s life in the theater. "Having Will combine his experience in theater and his artistic talent is wonderful for our team," says Trimble. "It is always fun to welcome a fresh new talent."From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-This confusing attempt at theatrical humor falls completely flat. Peppy the dog enters the magical world of backstage at a shadow-puppet theater. Her enthusiasm for running and chasing upsets everyone and everything until she hears a familiar tune sung by the Diva and is transformed into a good dog. Then she sees her shadow on the wall and spins herself right into the performance. When a wolf appears in the middle of the action, Peppy gnaws at him until the miscreant admits that he is in the wrong story, for there are no little pigs or Red Riding Hood about. However, the shadow puppet whom Peppy saves from the wolf is thrilled, Peppy's owner is thrilled, and the puppetmaster is thrilled. The story is trite, and the cartoon illustrations are unattractive and crowded. Bring down the curtain on this show.
