|Ollie-Dog and his sweetheart Greta|
I started writing this blog in 2011 and have publlished quite a few posts praising the work of fellow writers whose books are intelligent, witty, and fun - books that deserve to be praised and recommended. And these same friends often reciprocate in kind. But today is Valentine's Day and it is time for me to give a huge heart-shaped shout-out to my favorite children's book author - my husband Victor!
Victor has written two wonderful children's stories - The Ollie-Dog Quartet and The Little Green Astronaut. In The Ollie-Dog Quartet you'll meet a little pug named Ollie, a poodle named Greta, circus dogs, kittens, and oh yes, a boy named Jimmy. You'll also meet a villain or two but they are no match for Ollie-Dog.

The ebook is perfect for 5 to 7 year olds and would be a wonderful surprise Valentine gift for your children or grandchildren. .
The Ollie Dog Quartet can be purchased for $0.99 at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.
The chap who accidentally wanders on to a NASA spacecraft has adventures of an intergalactic kind and although he is a little lizard he turns out to be a big hero. This imaginative and whimsical story is also perfect for 5 to 7 year olds.
|The Little Green Astronaut|
Both ebooks are wonderfully illustrated by my nephew Christopher Alfaro. You can see from the few illustrations I've posted here that they are delightful!
The Little Green Astronaut is only $0.99 and available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.
Why not treat yourself and the young children in your life to these wonderful stories that are pure fun?
Happy Valentine's Day!
