Little Troublemaker Sponsorship Train

What happens when a BIG heart gets you in BIG trouble?

Meet Little Luvvie, a girl who loves her mom and her sister. She also loves doing kind things for other people. But those kind things don’t always have the best results… In this story, Little Luvvie finds out what happens when your big heart causes you to break some big rules—and what to ask yourself before you act. Readers will find the story funny, charming and relatable.

“I am so excited for kiddies everywhere to get their hands on this book. I wrote this book, featuring a little brown girl, with short hair, who is over-confident, thoughtful and funny, because I was that girl. And I want kids like her to feel seen. You know the kid who has great intentions but got in trouble when they didn’t always translate to the actions they take?” said Luvvie Ajayi Jones.

Perfect for children ages 4–8, Little Troublemaker shows kids that it’s okay to make mistakes, and delivers messages of empowerment and forgiveness – all lessons that are important to share with kids and the adults who love them. The charming and meaningful text is set alongside beautiful illustrations from Joey Spiotto.

“This adorable tale will resonate with children who recognize feelings of impatience, being too small, and wanting to be helpful. The playful and brightly colored illustrations match the book’s cheerful mood. Ideal for storytime, this one will also help kids develop social-emotional skills.”Kirkus Reviews
