California Author Debuts Children’s Book Celebrating the Power of the Imagination

By Jeremy C. Gredone

Herndon, VA; October 5, 2021: Mascot Books announces the release of Maxwell written by Jeremy C. Gredone with illustrations by D. Sherene Offutt.

Read along to the adventures of Maxwell, an extraordinary spider who plays in a rock band, joins the circus, and even goes to Africa!

Maxwell is a unique children’s book that celebrates the power of imagination and dreams. It’s a story about transcendence, and the extraordinary blossoming out of the ordinary. It is about the timeless and ever-expanding bond between parent and child, and the priceless lessons of love they hold for each other. While Maxwell is primarily created for children, parents will be delighted at the extras designed with them in mind. Truly something for all ages to enjoy!

– 40-page children’s book with vibrant and layered illustrations that will encourage many a reading to discover all the hidden magic within.

– Children will become part of this interactive story themselves as they are invited to take part in the “imaginative process,” creating new roles and adventures for “The Amazing Maxwell!”

– Includes a separately bound 28-page “True Story of Maxwell + Time Capsule” attached in back pocket of the book–Read the true story of Maxwell (a wild spider) as the author experienced it AND take part in your very own “Time Capsule” between you and your children–the making of a keepsake that can be handed down for generations!

Author note: I really can’t say it enough—this never should have happened. I am the accidental children’s book author. I am simply the man with enough luck to be the receiver of an amazing gift from a very unlikely source. This book, in a very organic way, demanded itself written . . . and I complied. For whatever reason, who we are in time—past, present, and future—has always fascinated me. I muse on who I’ve been and dream about who I’ll be. I’m amazed at how many lives we’re truly afforded in this one. Remembering how to look at the world with the eyes of a child is at the heart of this particular journey. As a wise man once told me, “We are all students and teachers for life.” My deepest thanks to you always, Maxwell.
