About the Author

Eileen Wacker’s journey to children’s book author took a circuitous route. She moved with her husband Rich and their four children, Olivia, Christian, Ethan and Natalie to Seoul, South Korea and lived there for four years. The family traveled extensively across Asia. Even after settling in Honolulu, Eileen continued to visit Asia as her husband was commuting to Seoul for his job. She is inspired by the rich cultures of Asia and loves researching the many traditions, celebrations and unique viewpoints found there. In Seoul, she ran a children’s book program. One of her children is Chinese and after researching the market and talking with friends, she noticed a shortage of quality Asian inspired children’s books and decided to develop a book series with Asian characters for the mainstream children’s book market. In 2007 she conceived of what developed into the Fujimini Island Adventure Series. The first book, Green Hamster and the Quest for Fun, was launched in 2010 in print and as an ibook (2011). There are five titles to date and the series will expand to twelve. Eileen approaches her brand with a 21st century vision. The reading trends are shifting with more and more content going towards a surging electronics market. Eileen’s strategy is to make her stories viable in the current environment of ebooks and ibooks, with eye toward interaction and social connection. Her books are available as ibooks and she developed a game app, named FujiScene. The young users create their own artwork and post in on the website gallery. She is working with an animator, Plan B Cartoons, to create enhanced ebooks. Eileen Wacker graduated from the University of Massachusetts and Harvard Business School. She worked for General Electric in several countries. She is married with four children aged 8-13 and resides in Honolulu with her family. She is in the car driving her kids around for about four hours each day. They have a feisty dog named Buster Brown who always runs away to visit the neighbor’s chihauhau, and, recently acquired six Molly fish named Blaze, Crusoe, Spike, Speedo, Wilbur and Buster (girl fish). So life stays interesting. She has extensive plans for the Fujimini Island Adventure Series and growing ONCEKids in to an established brand.

Format: Paperback
OMG! We love this book. Our children love the characters. The red penguin's adventures had the kids laughing but also asking great questions (little did they know that a fun kids book would lead to subtle moral lessons!)
Great drawings too.
Also, as parents, we appreciate that the author used some "stretch" words and unusual phrases - we felt that the young ones were learning more than they usually do with most children's books. Great use of Asian themes and customs - we learned a few things too. We will be gifting this unusual find this Christmas for sure.
Buy with confidence and enjoy!
