New Children’s Book ‘Stripe N Strong’: A Lonely Zebra Makes Unlikely Friend While Traveling to Georgia

Debra-Dee Shelton and Sharon Thompson, a dynamic mother-daughter duo, have completed their new book, “Stripe N Strong”:  a heartwarming children’s tale of loneliness and inclusion.

Thompson shares, “Stripe N Strong is a zebra that was in the circus who was unsure of what life was going to be after the circus closed.

Things appeared more hopeless for him when he found himself in a gray trailer hitched to the back of a Chevy Colorado heading for the state of Georgia.

Stripe N Strong’s journey from New York to Georgia was familiar but somewhat lonesome.

On the other hand, Nia felt like she was the luckiest girl in the world to have Stripe N Strong to be one of their family pets.

The first night Stripe N Strong got home, Nia had a dream about all the pets going through the woods.

While they were in the woods, Stripe N Strong rescued a teenager named George from the Clayton County Shamrock Dam. Stripe N Strong ended up a favorite. He not only rescued George from the dam but gave George’s autistic brother Derrick a zebra-back ride on the day the town had a fun day called the Pirate Extravaganza.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Debra-Dee Shelton and Sharon Thompson’s new book is a brilliantly illustrated, imaginative tale that follows a lonely circus zebra on his journey to friendship, fun and inclusion.

Readers can purchase “Stripe N Strong” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
