Sex, drugs and rock and roll. What more does a novel need?

Be prepared to take a trip when reading When Life Was Like a Cucumber by Greg Wyss. This trip will be unlike any one you have ever taken before. That is unless you were in your 20s, living in the late 1960s and early 1970s on the East coast, more

Take your young child on a grand adventure tonight!


Tonight it is time to take your young child on grand adventure! Author M.R. Everette's Beau Bear: The Fible of the Great Red Forest, delivers an adventurous story in this whimsical journey of two close friends, Beau Bear and his side kick Wheelburro. Beau Bear, who dresses similar to Indiana Jones with the whip, takes the pair to the Great Red Forest which is now a wasteland. In search of his roots, Beau Bear begins the investigation into the mysterious disappearance of his grandfather Red Bear.

Beau Bear and Wheelburro meet several friendly chipmunks, a squirrel, a badger and some not so friendly characters such as bats, a bunch of vultures and a very mean Giant Condor along the way. They learn about a curse that was placed on the forest, about the same time his grandfather disappeared, that turned the once lush forest into stone. The mystery deepens when they find out that a dragon was banished around the same time who had proclaimed revenge on the inhabitants of the forest. Since then, Dragonia the dragon has never been seen again and the curse still stands. It is up to Beau Bear and Wheelburro to find out how to reverse the curse of the forest and find out what happened to his grandfather Red Bear with the help of the other forest animals.

Author M.R. Everette makes it a very entertaining read with quirky characters from the forest, evil villains and a great sense of humor. The illustrations are vibrant and match the story well. I was chuckling each time a new page was flipped at the character’s facial expressions. This story would be suited for young children but is fun for adults too who will be reading it again and again and again to kids. I can't wait to see what other adventurers the pair will end up getting mixed up in. I see a series in the making.

M.R. Everette Author:  M.R. Everette


M.R. Everette is the author and illustrator of the Fibles Series of children's eBooks (the Adventure Series and the Learning Series). A Fible (pronounced fib·el) is a story with an untruth. The premise of a Fible begins with a trivial or childish untruth on a topic in a fictional story. In a Fible, the character seeks to find a truth to the untruth. In the end, it's the character's act or deed that promotes a kindness or goodness. A Fable on the other hand, conveys a moral which concerns a right or wrong behavior. I hope this helps give an understanding of what a Fible is, versus a Fable.

M.R. Everette is a graduate of Arizona State University’s school of business where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Management. After completing his degree, he went on to become a marketing director, web designer, and author.

In addition, he has also created an Indie publishing company called Cookietwist Publishing LLC.

Have fun and read the Fibles Series of eBooks aloud!
