Author Deborah Elum will read her new book at The Woodlands Children’s Museum Friday, Nov. 8.

Miss McDoogle has the Giggles is the story of a school teacher who enjoys a bit of silly time each night before going to bed. 

The reading will begin at 11:00 a.m., followed by a meet-and-greet until 12:30 p.m., when Elum will sign and sell copies of her book ($10.95 including tax).

“Deborah Elum is a very gifted writer who certainly understands the importance of not taking things too seriously and making time to be silly,” Executive Director Angela Colton said. “Giving children time to play and be silly is tremendously beneficial and contributes to the development of children’s minds, their social skills, their health and their overall well-being. We are excited to share a story about a teacher—a role model—who makes time to be silly.”




Elum, an Atascosita resident, has written several comedic books to engage and inspire adults and children, along with books about searching for one’s purpose and the power of worship.

As a screenwriter, she has launched two sitcoms and produced several drama productions. She also has edited more than 25 book projects for other authors and written for several magazines.

Elum’s visit is included in The Woodlands Children’s Museum’s regular $7 admission price for visitors age 1 and older. All activities will take place at 4775 W. Panther Creek Drive, The Woodlands, TX 77381.
