Great news! Midwest Book Review has announced that they are featuring my chapter book JEREMIAH LUCKY FINDSPUPPY LOVE on the Children's Bookwatch List. The following review will be in the March 2016 issue.
What a worry! Eight-year-old Jeremiah Lucky plays the frog prince in their third grade play and the princess wants to kiss him! Can he leap away in time? After summer begins, Jeremiah has a bigger worry-the cutest puppy ever is lost. Jeremiah's guardian angel appears. Will their plan work?
Charmingly illustrated by Eric Hammond, "Jeremiah Lucky Finds Puppy Love" is artfully written by Jane Ellen Freeman (a former language arts teacher who has been creating stories for over fifteen years), is very highly recommended for young readers ages 7-10, and would prove to be an enduringly popular addition to school and community library collections. For personal reading lists it should be noted that "Jeremiah Lucky Finds Puppy Love" is also available in a paperback edition (9781616337179, $9.95).
For my Morgantown, WV, friends I will be doing a spring book signing at the Barnes and Noble store near University Town Center on May 21 between one and four p.m. Hope to see you there. Both of my Jeremiah books will be available.
