Maggie McNair Wears Stinky Underwear

Sheila Booth-Alberstadt

Maggie McNair, like many other children, is not fond of taking baths. In fact, she thinks they're rather boring. She avoids taking a proper bath until a humiliating event spurs Maggie to learn yet another essential lesson in life.

Sheila Booth-Alberstadt tells Maggie's story with a sense of humor that will keep both Children and adults entertained to the very last page. Norris Hall provides the imaginative illustrations. Maggie McNair Wears Stinky Underwear is a charming, humorous companion to Maggie McNair Has Spiders in Her Hair. It explores issues of body hygiene through entertaining rhymes and a likable protagonist.

Sheila Booth-Alberstadt has a calling to write children's books with purpose--books that deliver a message to both the adult and the child. With the Maggie McNair series, the author carries on this goal to touch on topics that are common, everyday occurrences in life, including hygiene issues and manners--lessons best learned early in life. Inspired by her own children's aversion to baths, brushing teeth, cleaning their rooms, and more, Sheila Booth-Alberstadt crafted the character of Maggie McNair.

Norris Hall has been creating colorful, whimsical clocks, murals, office signs, decorative accessories, and illustrations since 1987, when he left his full-time job as an art director to pursue a career as an independent artist and illustrator. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
