Would you take advice from elementary school students?
Simon & Schuster will publish Isabelle & Isabella’s Little Book of Rules in October, written by Isabelle Busath (age 10) and Isabella Thordsen (age 8). This book contains Busath and Thordsen’s rules of life such as “recycle,” ”don’t bite the dentist,” and “protect this rule book.”
The girls originally caught media attention when their lost handwritten manual was returned to them by good samaritan Raymond Flores.
In an interview with Publishers Weekly, Simon & Schuster editor Lisa Rao explained that the project began after a Good Morning America segment on the girls.
The publisher plans to release this manual, with recreations of the girls’ original handwriting and doodles, in October 2013. According to The Huffington Post, artist Priscilla Burris will illustrate.
