Introducing Kudos Kid, Kate Dellett!
Today we are so excited to feature an amazing Kudos Kid and child author, Kate Dellett!
13 year-old Kate Dellett wrote a book called “Ally the Brave” an anti-bullying novel at age 11 while in fifth grade. The book follows the lives of Ally, Jane and Lulu, three best of friends who are navigating their way through the craziness of fifth grade. Most people have friends that they can lean on for support and look to in the darkest moments. Most people, that is, except Billy. Billy is alone in the world and has no friends. He bullies kids and shuts people out of his life. Ally and her friends stumble upon this boy and try to learn why he is like this. But will this quest jeopardize their friendship or will they expose Billy’s true heart? Ally the Brave is available on Amazon.
As part of the book concept, Kate also created Bullying Busters a group that invites kids to help put an end to bullying. A Bullying Buster follows The Bully Busting Three C's. They are…
