Author Brings Book Series To Life At Tiger Shark Cove

Author Karina Frederiks with characters Mitchie and Grumbalina.

Author Karina Frederiks hosted a party Saturday, March 25 at Tiger Shark Cove Park in Wellington to introduce children to her book series, Grumbalina. Frederiks got her start in the U.K. before moving to Florida. She owns a farm not too far from Tiger Shark Cove. “I want to encourage children’s creativity and imagination,” she said. “I also want to give back to the community.” Grumbalina is meant for children ages 5 to 9, and it’s also great for parents reading to their children. The series is about a fairy in her hometown of Pufftown learning spells and how to make the best of situations instead of being grumpy about it. The event included a coloring competition with prizes. There were also mocktail drinks and ice cream. Kids got to meet Grumbalina and Mitchie from the book series. Learn more at PHOTOS BY ERIN DAVISSON
