Announcing a brand new picture book by fellow author, Kelly Hashway.

"Pepe' Maurice Pierre, Poodle Extraordinaire" is the story of a poodle who does not want to be an "ordinary" poodle. He doesn't want to look like one, and he doesn't want to act like one.  But when Meg, his owner, enters him in a contest, what's a poodle to do?

Why, have fun of course!

Follow the antics of this rambunctious poodle as he skips out of the contest with two new friends on an adventure that could lead him into trouble. Will he make it back to the contest in time, or will he disappoint Meg? That's for you to find out.

Beautifully written by Kelly Hashway and illustrated by the award winning illustrator, Jack Foster, this book is sure to be a keeper on the kids' reading shelf. It is now available on Amazon. You can also check out all of Kelly's other books--picture books, Middle Grade books, and Young Adult books at her website

Note: After taking a few weeks off to get back in the swing of things as far as writing goes, I am now back to writing this blog weekly. If you have an issue facing today's kids you would like me to highlight, or a book you think they might be interested in, please send me an email at
