Goodnight Selfie

By Scott Menchin
Illustrated by Pierre Collet-Derby

Smile! Here comes one of the most memorable (and share-able) selfies of a generation.

“There I am! My first selfie!” After the star of this story gets her brother’s hand-me-down camera-phone and a quick lesson in the “selfie,” there is no stopping her! Anything can be turned into a selfie, and a host of adventures and misadventures caught on camera prove her point. Turning the camera-phone on herself becomes a part of her every day, all day long. Until, that is, it’s time to call it a day. Turns out, camera-phones and kids alike need to recharge their batteries!

  • The timeliest of timely topics, the "Selfie" is now starring in a hilarious picture book that doesn't offer judgment, only entertainment.
  • Sure to get a lot of press given the prevalence of "Selfie" topics in the entertainment journals as well as in more serious news outlets.
  • If it hasn't already been added to the lexicon and to dictionaries, it's just a matter of time before the ubiquitous "Selfie" appears in Merriam-Webster, American Heritage Dictionary, etc.
