Author Biography

Award-winning children’s author, Cindy L. Shirley grew up in a small town in Cherokee County Georgia. She is a wife, mother of two, and grandmother of one amazing granddaughter. She loves working with children and has tons of hilarious stories to share. Cindy says, “So many heartfelt conversations, and silly experiences took place during my time working as an Cobb County elementary school ASP teacher. Kids just want to feel acknowledged and share their day with someone.” It was during this time that she decided to pursue a business in entertaining children. Mrs. Shirley founded Let’s Pretend Parties in 2006 and Let’s Pretend Publishing in 2017. She continues to work with children of all ages as a party planner and hostess. Ms. Shirley is also involved with annual community and family events throughout Cobb and Cherokee Counties. This adventure, along with personal experiences, would be the basis for her heartwarming children's books: "Diesel the Body Guard; No Bullies Allowed! Doodle and the Magic Christmas Float, and her new series, The Fabulous life of Minnie the Sassy Chick." These stories are based on real characters from her family, as well as her childhood experiences. Her creative and fun filled story lines were written to bring a smile to children’s faces. She says, “I will consider this new adventure as an author to be a huge success if I can make children laugh.”

The Fabulous Life of Minnie the Sassy Chick: The Egg-Straordinary Egg by Cindy L. Shirley was a fun read. Two young sisters find a rather distinctive egg. They decide to care for it until it hatches. They each take turns babysitting the egg in their own unique ways. Much to their surprise, the egg decides to hatch!

I chose to read The Fabulous Life of Minnie the Sassy Chick: The Egg-Straordinary Egg with my six-year-old daughter simply because the bird on the cover looked like a flamingo. She is obsessed with flamingos and enjoys any story that has a bird in it, especially a pink one. Shirley did not disappoint her! My daughter liked the story very much and was asking what would happen next at the end. She also now wants an egg of her own to hatch.

My thoughts on the story are that I thought it was cute. The two sisters have totally opposite styles. My daughter identified with them both; Carly because she wore glasses and Riley because she liked eating donuts. However, I did have to explain to my daughter that it is better not to touch an egg if she happens to find one in a nest. I loved the artwork in the book. The illustrations are very cute and colorful, and were what first caught my eye. I can see many Sassy Chick stories in the future. My daughter and I enjoyed this story. We cannot wait to see what kind of adventures Minnie will have next. I look forward to reading more of this series.
