TV’s Punky Brewster, Soleil Moon Frye, will be signing copies of “Happy Chaos: From Punky to Parenting and My Perfectly Imperfect Adventures in Between.”
Punky Brewster is all grown up, in fact she’s 34 and a mother of two. Her daughters with husband television producer Jason Goldberg have just as unusual names — Poet Sienna Rose Goldberg and Jagger Joseph Blue Goldberg. Soleil Moon Frye played the title role of Punky Brewster from 1984 to 1986 and reprised the role for the animated TV series It’s Punky Brewster. During the 1990s she made guest appearances on The Wonder Years, Saved by the Bell, and Friends. She also appeared in the 90s films The Liars’ Club and Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings. “Happy Chaos” will be released on August 23, 2011.

From the Publisher
From Punky to parenting, Soleil Moon Frye shares insightful, realistic, in-the-trenches parenting advice, inspiration, and fun.
Enthusiastic, spunky, and positive, Punky Brewster was the quintessential eighties kid. Nearly thirty years later, Soleil Moon Frye-the adorable girl who played her on TV-is all grown up. Now she’s a married mom of two, an entrepreneur who parlayed her successful kids’ clothing line into a partnership with Target, and a social media whiz with millions of followers. Many of the same girls who watched Soleil on television are now grown up with children of their own, too, and they look to her as a go-to source for realistic, in-the-trenches parenting advice, inspiration, and fun. Happy Chaos invites those women into Soleil’s world, and makes them revel in the chaos of their own lives, too.
Soleil believes that “happy chaos” is the sign of a family operating at its best-when parents accept that they’ll make mistakes, that there will be messes, tears and skinned knees. She learned to love a jumbled life during her own childhood, when her own mom created an atmosphere that was thoroughly unconventional. Their house in Los Angeles was a haven for many young stars of Soleil’s generation, often far from home and looking for a safe place to hang out. In this book, she shows how her happy but chaotic childhood informed her parenting: Each chapter begins with a telling reminiscence before moving into insightful advice and fun stories about life with her husband and two adorable daughters.
