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.

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!

There is no reason not love books from this particular author. I have bought about five books for my son from this same author {Eileen Wacker} and I can't help but love their work. I am not a great savvy reader but my son is. I have read through the story line and I can't help admire the humor in the story. It is also a cool bed time story and does a good job in terms of cutting across children from age 3-11. Good Job

My daughter fully enjoyed seeing how the story unfolded in 'Red Penguin'. She and I both giggled while reading and felt a little sorry for Red Penguin when he discovered that the sushi he worked so hard on was missing. The author did a great job with interweaving all of the animals into the plot and how they all helped out to bring about a solution in the end. This particular story stuck with me and I thought it was very endearing how, and I just love the fun facts about Asian culture in the back of the book.

After reading the first book in this series by Eileen Wacker, my nephews and i were really excited to read the next one. And it definitely didn't disappoint us. I love dim sum and sushi (and salad too!), so it was fun to read about the prep for the moon festival. And I love that all the characters work together to have a great celebration, but always make sure to work together as a team and include everyone. Definitely a fun read for both you and your kids.

The pictures showed up great on my Kindle with no contrast issues like I've experienced with other children's e-books. I liked how the story flowed, full of entertaining jokes in between and a heartwarming conclusion. My children and I both enjoyed the read so much that we reread it the next night, it actually was better the second time because I switched up the voices, it's a great read you can get creative with so have at it and have some fun!

My kid loves red penguin from this story. Her one favorite character. We read Eileen Wacker some stories before. But we both loved more this book.Red penguin is cute and we felt sad when some hamsters stolen her favorite dish sushi. Its a bedtime story for kids. I read completely for my daughter at night she heared it completely. At the end we both loved . It have some moral lessons .
I think its as good one for all kids.

The red penguin's adventures got me laughing but also there was a subtle moral lesson in the story. I will be handing it over to my brother and i am sure he will love this. Dim, Sum and Sushi are my favorite characters. The drawings in the book is also very on point and playful. Even children that can't read will be encouraged to stare at this book.

Another wonderful book by Eileen Wacker. I read this book to my 5 year almost every night. She loves the all the different animals in the story and how they are all preparing for the Moon festival celebration. When the sushi goes missing she loves the adventure to figure out what happened to it. Such a wonderful book to bond with your kids over.
