Author Amy Neeren’s chapter book Nellie in Knots: Talent Show Trouble, illustrated by Annia Leon, was published recently by Bushel & Peck Books (October 4, 2022). The book features an adorable and quirky girl who loves all things sparkly and gets through life with her adoring pet parrot, Larry; her beloved psychologist, Dr. Neederburger; her family; and her quick-witted best friend, Emmie. Nellie Paparelli has an anxiety disorder. She worries about thunderstorms, car accidents, fires, and thieves. When her teacher, Ms. Rubinflaker, announces that there will be a talent show, it’s officially too much! Nellie’s anxiety explodes like a volcano. Will Nellie be able to cope with her anxiety? Or will it be the biggest disaster of the year?
