WICKED LOCAL – The sixth annual International Beverly Hills Book Awards recently recognized “Tabitha Fink Ninja at Night” by Rick Felty, of Natick, as the 2017 winner of the “Picture Book for 4-8 year old” category.
Experts from all book industry disciplines — including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters — judge the competition. They selected award winners and finalists based on overall excellence.
“Tabitha Fink Ninja at Night” is the latest in the “Tabitha Fink” children’s picture book series, written and illustrated for early readers. Tabitha Fink is a cat with one eye who loves to explore. Her adventures teach children about self-esteem as well as self-confidence when confronting new and unfamiliar situations.
“This particular Tabitha Fink book was written to help give kids confidence when dealing with a fear of the dark and the unknown,” said Felty. ”‘Tabitha’ is a fun series to write, and I’m excited to say that there is another on the way very soon.”
