A LIVE BIG TRILOGY of Mythological Fables

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”
Stephen King

Book 1: Dream Big

Have you ever wondered how that first caterpillar achieved the impossible dream of soaring with wings through the sky? Or how that first Tadpole hopped up on the bank of a stream to sing?

DREAM BIG takes readers back to the wilds of East Africa where life began and shows how different  animals achieve their dreams. Inspired by Joseph Campbell’s book, A Hero With A Thousand Faces, each animal goes on their own heroic quest and meet a moody Baboon along the way who discovers A Powerful Secret—SHHH—that helps them on their journey. You can use The—SHHH—Secret too once you read the book!

Hint:  To figure out Their Secret as you read, watch for CATCH-M, Their Magical, Mystical, Wished Upon Star who “WHOOSHES” down from the heavens when invited by their smile to “WHAM” ignite through their belief the gift of stardust in their hearts—their own personal treasure chests!

Book 2: Love Big (Release date is January 8, 2019!)

Generations later in the wilds of East Africa, the animals were hungry, miserable, and mean. They stopped believing in themselves and their dreams. The Secret—SHHH—their ancestors had discovered only worked for the few who could still believe. Until another moody Baboon discovered a second powerful Secret while watching Rhinoceros, Hare, and Lion brave their own heroic quests. In turn, they help Dung Beetle who actually saves the savannah with his poopy home.

Hint: To figure out The New—SHHH—Secret as you read, watch for CATCH-M again. This time in The Magical, Mystical, Miraculous Star-dust that surrounds them, who “WHOOSHES” into their lives when invited by their shared smiles to “WHAM” ignite the gift of stardust in all their hearts from their new found belief in each other and all their dreams.

In THINK BiG, the African Savannah is in grave danger. Animals are fighting and fleeing for their lives until a moody Baboon discovers the last known Powerful Secret—SHHH—that helps them become the hero of their own story.

Hint: To figure out The Last Known Secret as you read, watch for CATCH-M again. This time as The Magical, Mystical, Miraculous Star-dust already within each of them, who “WHOOSHES” through their body when invited by a big smile in All that is, to “WHAM” ignite the gift of stardust in their chest from a rekindled belief in oneself and ones dreams.
