Pelican Release

Wondering what author Bonnie J. Doerr is up to on her trip to the Florida Keys? She'll soon be doing author visits (check out the schedule below for more information), but in her spare time, Bonnie's doing what she loves best--working to save the environment.

Today she assisted with a pelican release. She sent us a picture of the release, part of the mission of the Key West Wildlife Center. And guess what Book 3 will be in Bonnie's series? That's right. A pelican rescue.

If you haven't read Book 1, about the Key deer, you'll want to start with that. Book 2 will be about turtles. And now you know what you'll have to look forward to in Book 3. One of the reasons Bonnie's books are so much fun is that she does hands-on research. So her books take you right to the scene. It doesn't get any better than that.

Or wait, maybe it does... Stop by the Key West Wildlife Center on Sunday, February 7 for the Family Fun Day Fund Raiser from 1-4 pm. Proceeds from the book sales will be donated to the wildlife center, so you can meet Bonnie in person, get an autographed copy of Island Sting, and help endangered species at the same time.

Oh, and don't forget to ask about the pelican release.


  1. Love turtle, but would love to know more about the pelicans. Still haven't received my won copy of Island Sting and I just can't wait to get it signed when Bonnie gets here.

  2. Hi, Lili, glad you're looking forward to the next books. If your copy of Island Sting doesn't arrive by the end of next week, let Cathleen Cartwright in Public Relations know, so she can track down the shipment. You can reach her at marketing@leapbks com.
