LOCAL AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATOR
A Waukee, Iowa school teacher teamed up with her student to write a book during the pandemic. Natalie Elliott is the author and Naomi Nicole Davis is the illustrator. Half of the proceeds from this book go toward a non-profit that provides books to low income students in Iowa. The other half will go toward Naomi's college fund.
About the book: Peny, the penny-saver, has a passion for protecting endangered animals. When she learns that some of her favorite creatures are going extinct, she struggles to figure out a way to help them. But at 80 years old, what could she do? Peny's age leads her to embark on a journey where her new black purse turns her into local and national hero.
