A Different Kind of Hero

 

 

I thought it was time to develop a different kind of hero children can relate to. 

 

Too many existing heroes have a common background- an adult mourning the death of a relative. This horrific experience laid the path of the said person to become a superhero. Batman, Spiderman, and many others became heroes due to losing a relative from an act of crime.

 

I thought it would be hilarious to create a child who uses a malfunctioning gadget suit to protect his accident prone parents who were first responders. The defected gadgets is an addition to the humor. But Jeff is not a quitter. The themes of persistence and determination to attain goals is apparent. Right vs. Wrong. Good vs. Evil. All that are elements in this tight action-pack book with great illustrations by my brother Aaron Harris.

 

10 year-old Jeffrey Morgan is on a never-ending conquest to save his mother, a police officer, and his father, a firefighter from the acts of tyrants looking to compromise the quality of life in Springdale. Thus, Jeff's secret intervention makes him a protecter of the city too (Of course he eventually realizes that in the chapter-book).

 

Please check out "Jet Set Jeff: The Science Defender" on Amazon as a paperback and ebook at http://a.co/ipx06VE and http://a.co/53SJIc8 Subscribe to my FREE monthly newsletter about the history of comic strips, comic superheroes, and their creators at http://kforpartnership.wixsite.com/educ

 

You and the children won't be disappointed in the story of Jet Set Jeff: Science Defender.

 

My brother Aaron is fantastic. Check out his art gallery at http://Amiablecomics.wixsite.com/entertainment and at http://aarongharris.deviantart.com (parental advisory for some content)

HOTEL BRUCE by Ryan T. Higgins
Hotel Bruce - Ryan T. Higgins,Ryan T. Higgins

Bruce and the goslings come home from the south but find their home turned into a hotel.  Bruce takes it as long as he can then he has enough.

 

What a guest list!  Bruce tries for the goslings' sake but enough is enough and we find out what a softie Bruce is.  I loved the illustrations.  I laughed out loud again.  Just delightful!

MOTHER BRUCE by Ryan T. Higgins
Mother Bruce by Higgins, Ryan T. (November 24, 2015) Hardcover - Ryan T. Higgins

Bruce is a bear, not a nursery rhyme kind of guy, but somehow the goslings think he's their mother. He tries to teach them to fly south but the lessons never take so he must take them south.

This is one of the funniest, laugh out loud tales I have read. I loved it! Nothing like guilt to motivate one. Delightful, whimsical, fun!

HARRY'S SPOOKY SURPRISE by N. G. K.
Harry's Spooky Surprise! (Harry The Happ... Harry's Spooky Surprise! (Harry The Happy Mouse Book 3) - N K,Janelle Dimmett

Harry the Mouse is asking his friends to borrow things then invites them to his home later in the week.  It is scary walking in the dark to borrow the items.  But it all turns out alright.

 

I enjoyed this story.  It is good for the little ones with repetition and good manners.  It is not too scary but realistic about what scares Harry.
