From the Author
I hope you like the book Jay-Pea-Eyes aka Junior Private Investigators. It was originally titled Jay-Pea-Eyes aka JPI's aka Junior Private Investigators, but that title would have left no room on the front cover for the brilliant illustration!
The book is loosely based around the area I lived in as a child; lots of fun places to play, loads of great memories of green fields, old coal mines, the Zoo and childhood freedom.
Enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
He lives with his wife in a small castle. He has children, grandchildren, fairies, hobgoblins, monsters, dinosaurs, dragons and all sorts of creatures that he and his wife look after. He is a time traveller, knight in armour and wizard. In his imagination, he visits planets and does all kinds of amazing things that he shares with you in his books!
His list of online children's books are:
The Curse of Sea Shell Cave, a mystery whodunit/detective for children. This is the second book in the series of the Junior Private Investigators.
The first in this series is a detective/whodunit called 'Jay-Pea-Eyes aka Junior Private Investigators', for ages 8-10yrs and is about a group of children who solve mysteries faster than the grown-ups can!
'Peter Challenge - Time Surfer, a fantasy/magical adventure for children reading longer 'chapter' books.
His latest book is a cuddle-up bedtime book for babies and great up to the age of 5 years as it teaches kids farmyard animal names, reading, listening and counting skills.
A writer who enjoys school and library visits (UK only - petrol tank not big enough to get to USA) to show how books are made.
As a grandmother with a seven year old granddaughter, this book caught my eye. As a retired school teacher, this is a book I definitely would have had in my classroom.
If you have a seven year old in your life, you probably already know how eager they are to start chapter books. But sometimes chapter books are also a bit daunting.
My granddaughter and I recently spent at least thirty minutes at our local bookstore while she thumbed through chapter books, only to put them back as none were the right gradient.
I knew when I saw this book that we had a winner and indeed we did.
With a good story that keeps young readers interested and also allows them to stretch their reading ability a bit farther – we were hooked.
The mystery is a good plot as children become engrossed in a story and as they read along the focus is on the story and what is happening versus the intimidation that a chapter book sometimes brings to young readers.
I was highly pleased with this book and was glad to see my granddaughter enjoying her first chapter book.

A well written mystery book, with a subtle touch of romance, that children will enjoy reading, and fantasizing about. The author was able to conjure an atmosphere of missing children, that were not really missing, of antagonists, that were rather daft in their undertakings, of a bullied family that failed to stand up for themselves, and in the end, a disaster waiting to happen.
Why did Emma not report the missing of her husband and son to the police? Why did the Cornettonie’s bullying not reported? Why was Zak allowed to terrorize his rivals with impunity, and above all, why was the police so incompetent? Of course, these could be regarded as elements that added pulse to the story, which kept the reader wondering what the outcome would be.
I like a well concocted story, especially, if the story is a mystery. Although The Boomerang Mystery had all the lapses I mentioned above, it held my interest until the end, if only to see how the author resolved those lapses. There are many ways of ending that story, and the author’s way is one of them.
