More About the Author

I began my career when I was eleven years old (under protest) on the blackboard of Miss Peterson's sixth grade class. Out in the real world, I wrote television commercials, which lead to my meeting a TV star who gave me a shot at writing TV sitcoms. Luckily, I ended up writing for two of the highest rated TV series in the history of CBS. In 2002, I co-created the animated preschool TV series, "ToddWorld," EMMY nominated three times for "Outstanding Animated Children's Program." My two picture books in the "Nathan" Series ("Nathan Saves Summer" and "Nathan and the Really Big Bully") have won "Mom's Choice" Gold Awards. My "Brave Rooney" series is now on the Kindle with the second title, "Brave Rooney and the Super-Sized Superheroes" also winning a "Mom's Choice" Gold Award along with a CEBA award and a medallion from indieBrag.

Format: Hardcover
NATHAN SAVES SUMMER is a beautifully written and illustrated picture book. Nathan's demonstrations of his lifeguard skills and lesson on sunscreen make this a fun read for kids. My favorite line in the book is when Nathan tells his friends, "Maybe it's not me who's too large. Maybe it's the pond that's too small." What a wonderful lesson for children to learn!
The illustrations are rich and full of color without being overpowering. Together, Renert and Bradshaw are a winning combination! I can't wait for their next book to hit the stores!

I think this books has some very cute illustrations but can someone explain to me exactly how Nathan saves the summer? He knocks all the water out of the pond, then it runs down hill into another area, which some penguins find. Doesn't make sense. If you ask me the penguins saved summer. What am I missing? Thanks, DB

I agree with the other reviewer who is confused by the story line. I'm not sure how Nathan saves summer. Also, the other animals are mean to him and then they're nice when it's convenient for them, not because they're sorry. Nathan deserves better. The story falls short of providing a good message for kids.

My grandson loved this book and so did his mom and dad (it was a gift from me). Most of all, it's a compelling and very funny story for young kids. My grandson laughed often but couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen to Nathan and his swimming hole. The book seamlessly blends the charming story line with valuable lessons about perseverance, determination and positive thinking. And who wouldn't want to go for a swim after this!

Bought this for my little nephew and he seemed to love the humorous characters. Also the painterly artwork was fun to browse through as an adult. But greatest appeal was the story itself with its themes of motivation, patience, perseverance and inner call-to-action paying off in a hugely (no hippo pun intended) surprising way. Well done!
