Have you met Thunder yet?

We have new middle grade cover art that was commissioned by Disney’s/ Dreamworks animator Lenord Robinson. We are proud of this series. Please add this children’s book to your reading collection. Our goal is to have Thunder and his friends become global ambassadors to stop poaching and have children recognize and take away the message.

Thanks for looking,

Cover

 

Janet F. Smart lives in picturesque West Virginia. She is the mother of three grown boys. She enjoys writing for children, bringing her thoughts, dreams and imagination to life. When not outside enjoying nature, she sits at her writing desk, her inner child flowing onto the paper. A flicker of a childhood memory was the inspiration for this novel.

 

After his dad dies in an accident at work, twelve-year-old Teddy Haynes and his mom come back to live with family in rural West Virginia. They hope to start over, but some people say the Russians are going to blow up the United States. How can they start over, if the world comes to an end?

He finds his life filled with talk of bomb shelters, a cat and dog that don’t get along, clinging two-year-old twin nephews and a pretty girl he’s too shy to talk to. To help cope with their fears, Teddy and his friends convert an old cave in the woods into a bomb shelter. Will they be able to work together and pull through the tense-filled months during the Cuban Missile Crisis in the fall of 1962? And will Teddy be able to overcome his grief from the loss of his dad?

Cover

 

In a world molded by commonality, the Bartleby brothers have always found themselves lost, but when a man from The Agency tests their analytical skills it becomes obvious what their function is.
Gibson “Gib” Bartleby is a fourteen-year-old kid with a genius intellect, and he’s smart enough to acknowledge that he might as well be a single-celled organism next to his autistic brother, Jack, who is literally addicted to reading. Struggling to find the place where he and his brother can thrive, or even function for that matter, Gib has become so cynical that he can barely stand himself. When a government agent walks into his brother’s classroom posing questions and riddles that no one should be able to answer, Gib takes the opportunity to show off what he and his brother can do. Whether a twist of fate or something planned from the beginning, Gib and Jack Bartleby become important liaisons to the mysterious government agency trying to stop a serial killer. This 84,000 word novel follows the first person perspective of Gib as he tries to hold the family he has left together for long enough to stop a killer who wants to challenge his brother’s abilities.
