The Raccoons: Cry Wolf!

“Why Schaeffer, what big teeth you have! Why Bert, what big fibs you tell…” There’s been a tornado in the Evergreen Forest! Schaeffer the sheepdog has gone wild! And there are gangsters at Cyril Sneer’s mansion! Or maybe Bert Raccoon’s imagination is getting the better of him. Perhaps his quest to become the best (and only) news reporter in the forest means fiction sounds better than fact. It’s certainly not Sneer’s three Pig henchmen making the young Raccoon cry wolf. Nope, no one will believe Bert’s crazy tales anymore. But Bert really does have a story: the biggest thing to ever hit the Evergreen Forest. Cyril intends to pave paradise and put up a parking lot. For children who grew up in the mid-’80s, early ’90s The Raccoons was required viewing. Mixing anarchic humour with great storytelling, this classic Canadian animation TV series focused on the exploits of Bert Raccoon, his best friend Cedric Sneer, Melissa and Ralph, Schaeffer the dog, and, of course, the dastardly pink aardvark, Cyril Sneer.

Meet John Peel

I was born in Nottingham, the home of Robin Hood, so I grew up hearing and reading stories. Inevitably, I began to also write them.

I’ve also created several series of my own, including “Diadem”, “2099” and “Dragonhome”. I currently live in New York.

Meet Laura Pruett

Laura Pruett began her writing career at the ripe age of approximately three years old by signing her name in her books. She soon advanced to writing random words on doors and, eventually, kindergarten stories about a Santa Claus she had never been taught existed (this time, on normal notebook paper). By the time she finally entered college classes, she would answer the introductory “If you could do any career that you wanted, what would it be?” question with, “I would like to edit dictionaries.” That said, although she minored in English, she majored in psychology, a degree which she obtained in 2003. Years later, in 2011, she began working as a freelance writer and editor on a site once called Elance (now Upwork). Because she preferred editing to writing, she soon eliminated the writing portion from her offered services and focused on editing–including GoFundMe pages, personal memoirs, fiction stories, self-help books, scientific reports, financial reports, and so much more. After years of editing others’ works and encouraging her husband, Michael C. Sahd, to publish his, Laura decided to finally contribute some of her own to the reading world. As of 2023, she has published two children’s picture books, The Dwarves Of Dimmerdown and My First Book Of Strangers: The People I Don’t Know. Currently, in addition to writing A World Apart, Gedra Gets a Man, and To Catch A Fish, she is working on another super-secret Kindle Vella novel, under a pen name. If you’re interested, here’s a one-word hint: Dwarves. Look around and see what you can find!

Meet Kevin Christmann

Kevin Christmann is the author behind Nervous Nolan Bison. He is a father, husband, and an IT Professional. Like many kids, his son loves animals; but what is not particularly common among kids is his son’s favorite animal…a bison. As you might imagine, there aren’t a ton of children’s books about bison. His son also loves to read, and they’ve had a lot of success reading books about many of life’s “firsts” with him. Combine that with the fact that they were having a little bit of a struggle with potty training (specifically #2), and one night he decided to write a story. After a bit of research about self-publishing and finding an illustrator etc. he was able to make his vision come to life. He hopes to write more stories about Nervous Nolan’s other experiences.

Meet Jonathan Culverhouse

Hi, I live in rural Wiltshire, not far from Stonehenge. During the pandemic I reworked an earlier version of Doomsday for the Disco Goblin and then published it along with two further books in the Underkingdom series.
As well as writing, I also enjoy knitting and knitting design. I have recently uploaded a free Disco Goblin pattern on the Ravelry website to go with book one. Further fun free patterns are planned.

A Leap into Darkness

Magic stirs and a little dog speaks: the kingdom will fall. But will humans listen?

Jake is a fluffy little dog who just happens to be one of the Sculptor’s “wise ones” . . . but nobody’s told him. He’s certain he’s ordinary, and he knows he doesn’t deserve living in a rags to riches fairy tale where he’s been rescued from his hardscrabble life by the King of Gorseland and pampered and loved by his two royal children, Janice and James.

But the good life is threatened with the arrival of the sorcerer, Beezeldorn, and his raven. Beezeldorn is a seeming charlatan: a crowd-pleaser with his sleight-of-hand and cheap spectacle. But his power from dark magic runs deep, on display in town when he heals a leper.

The queen senses the danger and pays for her instincts with her life.

Jake knows something is wrong, but what can he do? Beezeldorn is always one step ahead, moving into the castle, earning the king’s confidence, and befriending James. Even Janice is drawn to him.

Now it’s up to Jake to protect his family . . . before it’s too late . . . for the king . . . and his kingdom.

A Leap into Darkness is an unforgettable, epic fantasy that will capture the hearts and imaginations of middle grade readers, teens, young adults, and adults alike, encouraging them to embrace hope and leap into life.

The book is perfect for fans of C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia and S.D. Smith’s The Green Ember and those who love uplifting fantasy and adventure stories that celebrate courage, honor, virtue, loyalty, sacrifice, friendship, and family. Still on the fence? Well, then consider this: dogs, cats, horses, hedgehogs, house sparrows, tortoises, squirrels…a veritable parade of talking beasts…and they all have something to say. Don’t miss a word…buy the book today!

Deep Sea Diver Dave

Deep Sea Diver Dave meets lots of sealife as he dives down deep into the ocean, where each creature is both bigger and scarier than the last.

Max the Gorilla

Max the Gorilla was born in Germany in 1971, which is a very long time ago. He was a Mountain Gorilla so he was absolutely enormous and very hairy, which made some people think of him as just big and scary. But Max the Gorilla was a very special animal. He had hidden talents that people would only find out about much later.
One day, the people who were caring for Max at the zoo in Germany decided to send him to another country, where he would be very happy. So Max waved his other gorilla friends goodbye and made the big move – all the way from one continent to another.
He quickly settled into his new home at the Johannesburg Zoo in South Africa and before long, he met the love of his life, a gorgeous gorilla called Lisa. The two fell in love and got married.
One could say that Max was no stranger to adventure. He had already moved halfway across the world and had to start again and make a new life for himself in a foreign country. He was content and enjoying a peaceful married life.
However … Max the Gorilla had no idea of what lay just around the corner!
One night, he and Lisa were getting ready to go to sleep, when something terrible and totally unexpected happened. The couple found themselves in grave danger and poor sleepy Max had to think on his feet and act quickly.
What will happen next? Will soft-hearted, romantic Max be brave enough to confront the danger? Will he manage to protect his beloved wife and save the day?
Read on to discover what happens next and to learn why there is a statue of this exceptional gorilla at the Johannesburg Zoo to this very day!
Max the Gorilla is a truly inspirational story that will appeal to all young readers, particularly those with an interest in the animal kingdom. It will give hope to any children who have found themselves having to move to different countries and leave friends behind, illustrating that one can make a new and happy life anywhere in the world … as long as you have love and fresh air!
This is a story of immense courage and bravery, and its triumphant ending teaches children that whenever we come face to face with bullies in life, we are always stronger than we (and the bullies!) think we are.
