Grampa Was A Superhero – 2023 Release

Rocket Summer

Lacey Patterson just made an exciting – and dangerous – discovery. She’s found an old crate filled with surplus military rockets. Now, she could do the right thing, like telling her dad… Or she could do the fun thing, and talk her friends Kenny and Charlie into building a rocket-powered car on the outskirts of town. Of course, they’ve got no skills for building cars, and none of them even has a license. But with enough duct tape and baling wire, and a healthy dose of not-knowing-any-better, they’re bent on making this a summer to remember… if they can just stay alive long enough to enjoy it.

Angelico Goes To The Store

Angelico is a big white kitty who lives with his person, Cindi Lyn, in a cozy house at the foot of a tall tall mountain. When Cindi Lyn is not feeling well, Angelico decides it’s up to him to find her the tea and honey she needs to feel better. But it’s a long way to the store, and Angelico can’t steer and reach the pedals at the same time, so the drive takes longer than he expects. Luckily he’s able to find what Cindi Lyn needs to get her runny nose under control, and help her feel better again.

“I read Rocket Summer in one sitting. I just couldn’t tear myself away. Wonderfully, I couldn’t predict the end, which made me want to read about it more! I would definitely recommend Rocket Summer to people my age, but I wouldn’t be surprised if an adult enjoyed it, too!”
