More About the Author
My stories take place in the towns I lived in while searching for my purpose: Oregon, Nevada, New England, the South and the heartland of America. They are dedicated to the angels I met along the way who showed me true love comes in all forms, unconditionally.
It wasn't that long ago that I was living in my car with my mother and pets. But whether it was being abused as a child, bullied at school or taking care of my family's illnesses, one thing kept me going: my writing.
I knew if I kept writing from the heart, people would connect and one day my dream of being an author would come true.

This sequel excels ALL expectation! I loved the first book.
The illustrations are amazing and even if your child cannot read they will get the gist of the story line just by looking at the pictures.
I actually liked this book a bit more than than the first. Maybe it was because I had an idea of who the characters were after reading the first book. So reading this sequel was like revisiting the characters.
I also love the interaction between the brother & sister. While he gets on her nerves, he is proud to brag about her. I love that. It's a great lesson for children to hear and learn.
You and your children will definitely enjoy it.
You'll love this exceptional children's book because it never talks down to its audience. So will your children and your grandchildren. It's a great book to read and share.
Jeff Rivera is proving himself to be one of the foremost children's authors. These books are the reason. If you're looking for a gift for a young reader, this is perfect.
Just watch out for the Toilet Paper King!
Like the first book, the illustrations are cute and accompany the written text well. The book is easy to read. Also, this time around there's a lot more rhyming that happens (mostly because of the Slumpies). Kids will enjoy the story for its absurdness, but adults might actually enjoy reading it with their children, too. Like the original, I wish it came in a regular format instead of just being available in ebook form.
When will Jesse learn not to tease his older sister, Falisha by calling her "Faseesha?" Well, he did it again and now Falisha finds herself going down the path, again.
As, I previously mentioned, in reading the first volume, this series has so much animated potential.
You start with a totally new perspective on young, childhood sibling rivalry and then you say something important in a new, fresh way. This is the way to really distinguish your story from amongst the hundreds and hundreds of others that're being produced every year.
I would so love to see big, expressive illustrations, more daring moments with the two kids in this new kingdom and realistic problems explored and solved, or at least, discussed.
But, all in all, a very creative storyline.
Not only does little Falisha break the mold, but so does her mother! When she suspects that Jesse has been flushed--again--down the toilet, she never loses her cool. Unlike any mother I know she barely shows any panic, and on the other hand she decidedly refrains from springing into action to save the poor victim. Instead, she says with a huff and a puff, "You get Jesse back safe from that toilet or I'm going to have to tell your daddy!" Smartly, she places the entire responsibility square on the shoulders of the culprit, Falisha, giving her the charge to bring Jesse back from the underworld. What a strange mission, never entrusted to girls in traditional children's literature, and what a yukky, yet sweeping journey it turns out to be! Armed with her raincoat, boots, a plunger, and extra toilet paper, Falisha is ready to embark on a wide-ranging exploration through the yukk kingdom, making her way amongst the fantastically-disgusting creatures slugging in its muck.
The dialog is delightful, and it is as animated in words as the art on the pages of this book, done by Danko Hererra. For every sentence uttered in the story, the pose of the character is vividly depicted, you can imagine her right here before your eyes: "She pointed her finger in my face and wagged it back and forth.Read more ›
