Mel & The MooDoggies

After 23+ years as an educator, Mel has traded in his red pen and gradebook to dedicate time to his drawing pen and guitar. Mel and his roving children’s entertainment group Mel + Moodoggies are hitting the road at festivals, libraries, summer camps, and some places that even the Terrible Turtle hasn’t been yet.

Before his latest adventure — T-Boy and the Terrible Turtle — turned into a page-turner, Mel LeCompte hit the shelves with two other books, The Ice Cream Cow and Sharpened Iron.

The Ice Cream Cow is a bedtime reader for little ones, which deals with an ornery cow that just will not moo! The Ind magazine called the Ice Cream Cow a tale “that reads with the cadence of Good Night Moon and the whimsy of Dr. Seuss.”

Mel and the MooDoggies will be visiting the Vermilion Parish Library on the following days:
