Editorial Reviews


"With her newest story, J.E. Rogers has deftly turned her hand to crafting a timeless tale for children in the form of a gorgeously illustrated picture storybook that packs a fine message about caring for the environment." Jason J. Marchi, author of the best-selling picture storybook, The Legend of Hobbomock: The Sleeping Giant, a REVERE Awards Finalist ( J.E. Rogers' fantasy tales are brilliant reads for kids. The stories bring children into the Australian outback, teaching them about animals they don't typically see, and gives them beautifully illustrated pictures for them to enjoy throughout the books. Lisa Fender - Author of The Lorn Prophecy series. ( "This delightfully written picture book is rather sneaky. Tucked in with all the action and fun is a message kids will remember--clean up your mess! I recommend reading One Hot Mess to your child or your class. Kids see how a sneaky writer and a mob of kangaroos put responsible teamwork to the test, and were super happy with the results. Margot Finke--Magic Carpet of 15 Books J.E. Rogers' One Hot Mess, A Child's Environmental Fable is one that teaches young and old alike the importance of protecting our environment. It also teaches us about some of the wild animals that live in the Australian outback, like the kangaroos, the wedge-tailed eagles, and the dibblers. There is a glossary at the back of the book that provides interesting and valuable information on Australia and its wildlife. The message is clear: what we throw so carelessly away affects the wildlife and the wildlife is important to our entire ecosystem. This story is beautifully illustrated and compassionately told, with a child and a young kangaroo teaching us what we should already know - to work together to keep things clean, to protect the environment. READERS' FAVORITE FIVE STAR REVIEW *****

About the Author

Infused with a reverence for life, J.E. Rogers loves animals and has always been especially intrigued by the unusual creatures that can be found only in Australia. An avid student of every facet of the country, Rogers' love of all things Australian has flowed into her books. She hopes to spark an interest in young readers to the flora and fauna of Australia while engaging them in a wildly imaginative tale of adventure. She spends much of her time blogging and speaking to youngsters, at libraries, schools, and museums, about endangered and threatened animals around the globe. She wants children to understand that we are connected with all life on this planet, and that animals are our fellow creatures and we share this world with them. It is our responsibility to protect them. J.E. Rogers is a graduate of Western Connecticut State University. She lives in Connecticut with her family, which includes two dogs, and two cats.
