Exclusive: A Q&A with Jeff Rivera

Question: You write for many national outlets, you blog, you're on TV, you talk to kids all over the world and your a son and uncle of 12 nieces and nephews. How do you balance all that with your writing?

Rivera: Great question. Sometimes I wonder the same thing but here's how I look at it: We're all blessed with 24 hours a day, so if you really want to do something, you can carve the time out to do it. Sometimes when people look at their lives and they think they don't have the time, they realize that they spend a lot of time watching TV or surfing the web or playing video games or staring up at the ceiling and when you subtract all that time, you realize, "Hey, I have a lot more time than I thought I did."

Q: You've written mostly for young adults in the past. How has writing for children been different for you?

Rivera: I think it's a lot more fun because kids are so honest. They'll tell you very clearly what they like or don't like and you're able to write stories exactly the way they like them. Plus, I'm one of those adults that never has really grown up totally. I still buy toys for me to play with and I still watch cartoons and Disney and Dreamworks Animation movies. I'm a big fan of those old Disney musicals too.

Q: One of the things you've done is put together Skype tours for big authors and stars like Mark Victor Hansen (Chicken Soup for the Soul), Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook) as well as tons of Disney Channel and Nickelodeon stars and kid stars from Twilight and Hunger Games. How was that and will you do a Skype tour on your own?

Rivera: Another great question! Working with these huge authors and stars is a blast because I get to work with people I've always looked up to. The kid stars are fun to work with too because they're so talented and funny. I'd love to do a Skype tour on my own and if anyone is interested in me speaking to their class they can email me and we'll try to find a time. I normally don't charge anything to do them if I have time.

Q: Um, Mommy I Think I Flushed My Brother Down the Toilet is hilarious. It's your first children's book. Will you write a sequel or any others?

Rivera: It's funny you should ask because I just finished writing the first sequel and I'm writing the third one soon too. I also have written a handful of others that I'd like to come out very soon too. So far, the parents and kids that have read them have given them a big thumbs up so I hope everyone else likes them as well.

Q: You've said that you based your two main characters in this book on your own brother and sister. How so?

Rivera: The Falisha character is definitely like my big sister Velicia when she was little. Incredibly smart but a little bit mischievous. The Jesse character is just like my little brother Stephen when he was little too; always getting into something. It was really important to me to have characters that are of all colors and sizes because that's the world we live in today.

Jeff Rivera has done it again! This is a delightful sequel to Mommy, I think I flushed my brother down the toilet, only now Falisha has the Toilet Paper King to contend with. Jeff's ingenious rhymes are fun and remind me of Dr. Seuss. Children will love this story, and so will adults. Can't wait for the next book!

It's not easy writing a sequel to a good book. The book will automatically be compared to the first book.

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.

He is indeed in this sequel to "I Flushed My Brother Down the Toilet". So is Falisha Whiskers, her long suffering mother and the whole crew of somewhat disgusting but nonetheless lovable creatures from the world of Yuck.
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!

I read these books to my grandsons and they loved them both, but loved this book the best. The boys are 3 & 5 years old. Of course the oldest boy loves them most.

"The water flushed and slushed and mushed all over me. Down I curled and left and right I swirled. Tumbling and fumbling and jumbling away..."

***

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.

UM...MOMMMY, I THINK I FLUSHED MY BROTHER DOWN THE TOILET (AGAIN): RETURN TO YUCK KINGDOM PART 2-THE SEQUEL begins in much the same way that UM...MOMMY, I THINK I FLUSHED MY BROTEHR DOWN THE TOILET began. Falisha Whiskers has once again flushed her younger brother, Jesse, down the toilet for calling her names. Her mother orders her to go back down the drain and retrieve her brother before their Daddy gets home, otherwise Mommy is going to tell Daddy what Falisha did to Jesse. So, armed this time in a raincoat and with a backpack made of toilet paper, Falisha travels down the porcelain tube and arrives in the Yuck Kingdom. Even though things smell just as bad, there's something wrong with the Yuck Kingdom. Falisha befriends one of the cockroach people (called Slumpies) and learns that the Toilet Paper King has captured and imprisoned many of the Slumpies as well as Jesse! Can Falisha save her brother Jesse from the prison of the Toilet Paper King and return home before her Daddy arrives for dinner?

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.

Ok this is definitely not something any young children should try at home as you will get into lots and lots of trouble.

Falisha is mad at her brother Jesse and decides to send him down the toilet to the Yuck Kingdom. Once Jesse arrives he meets some of the members of the Kingdom. He sees a bug -eyed taxi driver, ghastly beast, who travels in a rather unique way.

The story has lots of rhymes liked twirled and swirled, tumbling and jumbling and will have you laughing and hoping that Falisha can find her brother before her dad gets home.

This story will definitely hold your child's attention while you are reading it to them and they are going to surely tell their friends about this adventure

Colorful illustrations and just enough to keep a child interested before they loose their attention span. Anxiously awaiting the next adventures, from Mr. Rivera.
