    "This is too cute!" was the first thing I said when I read and looked at the illustrations in Pixel Mouse House new eBook The HuggaSnuggas: a Cozy Calendar.  I absolutely love the illustrations and story by Ted Enik.  The story is about Little Emma who wrote a poem about each of her snugga's (stuffed animals).  The poems are really sweet such as the one about her penguin.  "For January this Penguin chick would pick a snowfall, very thick.  Did I mention how much I love the illustrations?  They are gorgeous and just so darn cute! One of my favorite poems was the one about the monkey.

Pixel Mouse House has just released a new eBook called The Four Little Pigs.  Yes, that's right - four little pigs!  Written and illustrated by Jose Maria Cardona and edited by Ted Enik, this story opens up wth three slim, springy and fast brothers jumping around. Their youngest brother is a roly-poly, pudgy fellow who has a hard time keeping up with his siblings.  For example, when he tries to cross over the wood footbridge, it isn't strong enough to hold him up so plop he goes into the river for a surprise cold bath.  He also has a hard time jumping up high to bouncve the ball on his head like his brothers can do so easily.  The illustrations are fun and Jose Maria Cardona does a good job at showing the different emotions the brothers are feeling.  You can just image how they feel when a mean, lean and hungry-lookiing wolf shows up in their yard.  The four little pigs stop what … [Read more...]

Recently I discovered the wonderful Pixel Mouse House publishing company that focuses on releasing quality eBooks .  The company is run by a group of talented illustrators who have been doing contracted work with the major players in the publishing industry for years.  They recently created Pixel Mouse House to tap into the eBook market.  Their new release The Sky is Falling by Tom La Padula reminds me of the stories our grandparents would enjoy reading.  The story is about Henny Penny who thinks that the sky is falling after being hit on the head by an acorn that fell from an old oak tree.  We join her  as she decides she must warn the King that the sky is falling and meets up with some of her friends Cocky Locky, Ducky Wucky and Goosey Loosey along the road to the King's castle.  You have to love these names! The crew head off to find the King to tell him the sky is falling and … [Read more...]
