Love and Accept Yourself with Disco Lance!

Disco Lance is a funky disco donkey duck who loves to dance the Funk-A-Duck everywhere he goes. When Disco Lance brings his 70's style and disco moves to school, he gets made fun of by all the other kids who think he's different and strange. Although sad and lonely at times, Disco Lance loves who he is and doesn't let the other kids persuade him to change his disco ways. Not only does he stand up for himself, but he teaches the other kids to love and accept themselves for who they are too. Everybody wins in this happy and victorious disco-dancing story.


Book Excerpt

"But kids at school do not agree. They point and joke and laugh at me. They say, 'Hey Lance, dude, don't you know, That disco was so long ago? Disco Lance, you’re really strange! It’s time for you to finally change, Those funky moves and funked-out hair. We DO NOT like those clothes you wear!"


About the Author

Lori Kristen Kelly

Lori Kristen Kelly's Donkey Ducks were brought to life when her then-5 year old daughter, Sienna, asked her to draw a duck. Lori drew something which Sienna thought was a donkey, to which Lori answered "It's a donkey duck!". And then, Donkey Ducks were born! Just like Disco Lance, Lori always felt like she was unique from the other kids growing up in elementary school. Always being tall and lanky, Lori got called names and was laughed at, just like Disco Lance. Lori turned what she thought was a disadvantage into an advantage when she worked as a fashion model in New York City and Italy. She wants to teach other children to use their uniqueness to their advantage, and also appreciate and learn from others' uniqueness as well.
