Sometimes, he would get upset. But never once did I did fret. You see, uncle Jay wasn’t always this way. But somehow, in some way, something made him sick. And for that, people would freak. And while I wonder and get confused, uncle Jay would always make my day. He brings me sweets and tells me stories. He always gives me a big smile and huggies. I love my uncle Jay. And for that, beside him I’ll stay. “Uncle Jay Has a Booboo” is a heartwarming story between a little girl and her uncle Jay who has schizophrenia.

This book seeks to change that by teaching kids kindness, empathy, resilience, and love despite what their parents or other caregivers are going through. At the end of the day, this book is meant to become a communication tool to help ease children’s confusion and help them create positive coping skills when dealing with loved ones who are suddenly behaving oddly. If you’re looking to reduce the stigma associated with a difficult mental condition that may create threatening and challenging situations for your child, then this book is for you.

Islanders: The Pacific Chronicles

“I loved the combination of history, lore, education, entertainment…and I absolutely loved Eleu and Molawa.” -Tara Lewis, former Director, Disney Publishing Worldwide
“Islanders comes steeped in Hawaiian culture, mythology, and legends.” -D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer for Midwest Book Review
“Enormously entertaining, [the] tale deeply respects the myths that have inspired it.” -Reviewed by Vincent Dublado for Readers’ Favorite
“Islanders is clearly a product of love… love of nature, love of Hawaii, and love of good storytelling.” -Reviewed by Jake Vander Ark, author of Put the Cat In the Oven Before You Describe the Kitchen: A Concise, No-Bull Guide To Writing Fiction

When eleven-year-old Kilikina and her brother, fourteen-year-old Kaimana, are unknowingly given access to a hidden and legendary world in their native O’ahu in the Hawaiian islands, they are also gifted with an unexpected set of magical abilities. Soon, they find themselves on an adventure, one in which they experience the interconnectedness of the world around them and begin to learn firsthand about the islands’ vast history and traditions.

Guided by a quirky and silly duo from a mythical race of tiny people, the siblings soon learn they have been chosen to help protect their island and way of life from a great evil. Are they up to the challenge?


Meet James Eldridge

Children’s book author James Eldridge and his illustrator brother Richard Eldridge were raised in Hawaii and were inspired to bring the beauty and mythology of their homeland to young readers with their middle-grade fantasy novel, Islanders, the first installment in The Pacific Chronicles series. James is married to the lovely, real-life Kilikina and together they have four children. Richard is married to his childhood friend, and together they have their own island girl.

After a near-fatal experience with COVID in 2021, including forty-five days on a ventilator in the ICU, multiple blood transfusions, being in an induced coma and having several live-saving surgeries, James’s road to recovery was both mentally and physically challenging. He and his brother worked together to bring this story to life, using their home as a background, as a way to focus on something creative and inspiring to help James put the nightmare of COVID behind him.

James and Richard explain that there is a fascinating concept of duality in the animal world in Hawaii: there are native species and invasive species, yet many people (especially visitors) cannot tell the difference. For their series, they enjoy using the idea that these species are secretly at war with each other for control of the island and nearly no humans are aware of it except for a chosen few.

The brothers hope their young readers come away from their stories having tasted a small part of the beautiful Hawaiian language, the soft strength and humor of its culture, a respect for its history, and a desire to visit. James now lives in Bentonville, Arkansas, while Richard lives in Honolulu, Hawaii. Islanders, book one in The Pacific Chronicles series, is their debut novel.
