Imelda Keeps a Promise - The Adventures of Imelda Lucille and Armand Francis is a wonderfully crafted first chapter children's book for young readers. This story is written by Charlene M. Campanella and beautifully illustrated by Sierra Frantz. The adventure begins when Armand invites Imelda to camp out at their favorite spot in the woods, she is faced with a tough decision.

Authors's Note

There are only a few things that really get into your blood and guide the course of your life. Flight has been one of those things for me. The sensation that tickles deep in the belly when leaving the ground for the very first time is the same magical sensation that fills the heart with dreams and ambitions. One of my fondest desires is to open up a world of possibilities to every young reader. If this book ignites a spark of wonder in even one child, it will have accomplished its purpose.    – Charlene M. Campanella


"A lovely book. Gentle and wise."

About the Author

Charlene M. Campanella

At the tender age of six weeks, Charlene experienced her first flight with her father at the controls of a Cessna 170. It wasn’t until kindergarten that she realized not every family owned an airplane! Today she is a wife, mother, grandmother, writer, and private pilot living in Northeast Ohio, with her husband Stephen and of course their faithful canine companions, Mia Sophia and Cooper Sebastian. Beyond flying for the pure joy, Charlene is excited to share her passions for writing and flying with the next generation. Through tales of adventure and friendship designed to capture the imagination, she hopes to inspire her young audience to explore the opportunities of aviation – to the clouds and beyond.
