Jody Feldman Plays Games!



The Class of 2k8 is delighted to introduce this week’s debut author, Jody Feldman. Jody’s book, The Gollywhopper Games is now available and we simply cannot be prouder.

First, meet Jody:


Jody always found writing to be a chore. Hard. Boring. But at some point between the day she entered the University of Missouri as a psychology major and the day she graduated from their Journalism School, she’d turned into a writer.

During her advertising career she’s written about shoes, movies, fluid fertilizer, books, sewing machines, beer, leather cleaner, street banners, rodeos ... even words for a giant fortune cookie. She’s worked in a department store, a factory, a pre-school and spent one day training to sell products door to door but decided she’d rather eat a door.

Jody might have liked to become a treasure hunter, a codebreaker, a movie director, an artist and an inventor. But the most exciting part about writing is, she can explore all those occupations and adventures with the characters in her books.

Jody Feldman lives and plays with her family in St. Louis, Missouri.

Next, check out Jodi’s fabulous book, The Gollywhopper Games:



Gil Goodson's future happiness depends on winning Golly Toy and Game Company's ultimate competition. If Gil wins, his dad has promised the family can move out of Orchard Heights -- away from all the gossip, the false friends, and bad press that has plagued the Goodsons ever since The Incident.

Gil has been studying for months. He thinks he knows everything about Golly's history and merchandise. But does he know enough to answer the trivia? Solve the puzzles? Complete the stunts? Will it be more than all the other kids know? Gil's formidable opponents have their own special talents. He must be quicker and smarter than all of them.

The ride of Gil's life is about to begin.


Thanks for celebrating the release of Jody’s book with us. Don’t forget we are celebrating The Gollywhopper Games all week, so stop back by to give our latest debut author some love.

Let the Games Begin!
