ourney to the exotic Galapagos Islands,
where the native animals just cannot stop talking about Buddy, a newly hatched, red-footed booby bird, born with a birthmark.
Because Buddy is different, he and his mother Isabela, are not exactly welcomed with open arms.
However, that does not stop Buddy from being himself and, in the process, teaching the elders some valuable lessons about
tolerance, friendship, self-acceptance, and what really matters in life!
When a mysterious
Galapagos sea hawk offers to grant Buddy a wish, everyone is sure he will decide to have his birthmark removed. But will he?
This imaginative, heart-warming fable has something for everyone.
Kids of all ages will love the rhythm and rhyme of the verses; the bold, expressive illustrations; and learning about
the unique creature inhabitants of the Galapagos Islands.
Adults and educators will welcome the
timeless messages of tolerance, self-esteem, and the importance of a strong parent/child bond.
Meet Evan Ducker. He has a port-wine stain on his face. Statistics show he is
in good company--One in ten babies is born each year in the U.S. with a birthmark of some kind. The incidence is estimated
to be the same in other countries.
as common as the marks are, Evan asked (at the age of 4) why none of the characters in his story books had a birthmark like
his. That one question became the inspiration for Buddy Booby's Birthmark.
Evan developed the concept of the setting, plot, and characters
by drawing on his imagination and relentless interest in animals. Together, with his mother Donna, they created the story
based on their personal experiences.
guess I just wanted kids with birthmarks, like me, to have a book with a character they could relate to," says Evan.
"I think people who read it will get a better idea of what we (kids with birthmarks) go through every day."
