Open Mic Wednesday - new author for you

Every so often I want to unveil a new budding author for you to  enjoy.  Every novel author has to start somewhere and I am more than happy to lend a helping hand to feature their fresh-off-the-press books for my visitors here at Storywraps to check out.  Here is today's featured book...


Authored by Matt Newnham 
Illustrated by Richie Williams

I loved his book dedication...
"To my mother who encouraged me to read"

May all mother's, father's and caregivers be a catalyst to inspire and encourage a child to read.  - Me 

Unwrapping some illustrations...

The illustrations are simple, vibrant, and childlike, thus making the book very kid-friendly and engaging for young readers.

About the book...

"Fred Sanders was almost 7 years old, and the one thing he wanted more than anything in the world was to be an intergalactic space ranger, just like his hero Zando Centauri in his favourite comic book.  It was all Fred ever spoke about, thought about and dreamt about, and one day he knew he too, would be saving the universe, one star pulse at a time."  Thus begins an out-of-this-world adventure....

If your child is mesmerized by astronauts, space travel, super heroes and comic books well this book will send him/her to the moon and back.  

On a regular Tuesday afternoon just like all the others Fred is sitting in his bedroom with his dog Jupiter looking out the window and finding everything he sees outside boring.  He longs for Zando Centauri to come and rescue him from his tedious everyday life and take him off into space for an experience he will never forget.  

Wishful thinking right? He is dreaming the impossible dream... again...or is he?  Little does he know that something amazing is about to happen and he, Fred Sanders, will accept a space mission, will rise to the occasion and bravely go where no other earth kid has ever gone before accompanied by his comic book champion... Zando Centauri!  

Planet Jambori will be saved thanks to Fred's skill of simply being able to tie his shoelaces.  Who would have thought?  Hurray for Fred! Dreams can come true!  

This book is perfect for kids ages 6-10.  It ignites imaginations and inspires kids to follow their dreams.  "Space Ranger Fred and the Shoelace Adventure" is fun to read aloud together or solo by your child.  Check it out on Amazon today.
