Kid's Korner: A Rainforest Adventure






A Rainforest Adventure by Sharon C. Williams
Early Middle Grade Adventure

Jasper is no ordinary parrot. He lives in the rainforest, which secrets he’s eager to explore. Jasper loves his home and his family, and he's also in charge of his younger brother Willie - a responsibility Jasper takes very seriously.

When he meets Charlie - a spider monkey with a penchant for food and a laid back attitude - he realizes he’s in for an adventure he never thought possible. Even if this means getting into danger and worrying his mother to no end.

Exploring the boundaries of the forest, Jasper understands that there is more to the world around him. Who are the strange new creatures that have come there? With Willie and Charlie by his side, he will soon find out.



Knight out of Fairy


A Rainforest Adventure is a wonderful story. Jaspar has some fun adventures in this book. Not only is it a great way to spark kid's interest in the rainforest and who lives there, it teaches a few life lessons along the way. Friendship is a constant theme, and the animals Jaspar and Willie meet along the way make for a wonderful cast. The short chapters make it perfect for early middle grade readers. Definitely recommend!

About the Author: Sharon C. Williams is a native of New England raised in Northern Maine. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and son. She is also owned by a flock of birds

Sharon has a B. S. degree in Chemistry. She loves to read, sketch, take pictures, walk, exercise, go to the movies, and listen to music. She is a budding bird watcher, and knits on the side. She is a huge sports fan of baseball, basketball, hockey, and football. She is also a shutterbug and is always looking for the next big shot.

Sharon tends to write by long hand as the flow works better for her this way. Her bookshelf consists of works written by Stephen King, Agatha Christie, Bentley Little, and James Patterson. The best advice she has ever received about writing was to write about what you know. Her first thought was, “Yeah right,” but it really is that easy. A writer just needs to know a little tidbit to turn it into a short story, and soon enough, there's a book.

Two of her short stories were published in the anthology, Cassandra's Roadhouse, and two in the Dragons in the Attic anthology, which was written by her writing group, The Wonder Chicks. Her children's chapter book, Jasper, Amazon Parrot: A Rainforest Adventure, and Jasper: Amazon Friends and Family, was released by Fountain Blue Publishing in 2013 and 2015. Volume three, "Jasper, Amazon Parrot: The Perils of The Jungle", was released in November of 2019. Her comedy novel about her war with her backyard squirrels, Squirrel Mafia, was also released in the spring of 2015. Her latest book, “Everyday Musings” which is a collection of short stories and poems was released Sept. 30th, 2016

As of 2016 Sharon has started an author'scoaching and beta reading service.
