The world has had quite enough of dreadly, dysfunctional, dystopian stories. It’s time. Families are yearning for their Light… for a beautiful, beguiling, positive story that

- teaches life skills,
- brings b’jeekers of joy and surprise to children and families.

A story that begs to be read to the last page – the last word. It all awaits, resonating in the Family Classic Novel: “Becoming Jesse”.

Amid the joyful fireworks of New Years Eve, 1947, Jesse O’Neil is born. An orphan. At age six, Jesse discovers that he has a ’disappeared’ grandmother, and he springs into a quest to find her. But first, he must puzzle out the web of riddles his mysterious mother has left behind. And brillish Jesse O’Neil eats puzzles for breakfast!
