About the Author

Dolly Dozier figured out early in life that having a good book meant never being bored. As a result, her fanciful mind, along with her love of storytelling, have given her wings to do, well ... anything. Before she started writing books for young readers, she had a very interesting career in advertising and the performing arts. She is a big community volunteer and a firm believer that the world is what you make it. Dolly lives in the wilds of central North Carolina with her husband and son, and Magnolia May the beagle. When she's not writing or telling stories, she likes to spend time outdoors hiking, kayaking, gardening, and riding bikes with her boys.
Monica Wyrick has a fine arts degree from the University of Dayton and has worked in advertising, as a muralist, and as an art instructor.She is the illustrator of Crabbing, Dreaming with Animals, The H. L. Hunley Submarine, and Art Smart, Science Detective, all published by the University of South Carolina Press.
Peyton Sickles is a photographer specializing in portraiture, landscape and architecture. His work is a fine balance between digital and film (with a focus on 4x5 and Full Frame). He was a 2018 National Geographic Travel Photographer of The Year Finalist. He is a visual storyteller focusing on finding elements that connect people.


"Peggy Noodle is a fun read. Peggy's dilemma of 'awkwardness' is put to rest as she meets the challenge of conquering a new sport shown to her by Clara, an elderly neighbor. This easy reader encourages self esteem, and depicts competition and friendships." - Carol Crane, author

"This book was delightful; the lesson it imparted was a good one for any youngster who feels out of place or different for any reason. Very well written, and the pictures are charming." - Gazebra, Amazon reader

"I loved this book. It was fun to read and my 5 year old son thought the hula hoop was such a cool idea we bought him one. Now we just need Peggy to show him how it works. I like the lesson that it teaches that it is ok to be different. You needd to find your own activity that makes you happy not what everyone else thinks you should be doing. It is great for children of all ages." - Cathy Howard, Amazon reader

"From the moment I opened Peggy Noodle, Hula Hoop Queen I was hooked. It's a feel good book that teaches a number of important childhood lessons like making friends, finding out what you're good at, and how to be yourself...and proud of it! The illustrations in the book are beautifully done in black and white by Monica Wyrick. Your kids or students can work together to connect the struggles of Peggy's first year in Peak City to the troubles they sometimes find with friends."
- Arielle, A Carton of Milk (NYC)
