Heart-Shaped Shout-Out!

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.

Ollie-Dog at the circus

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!
