Coming Spring of 2020

book 3 cover with watermarkIn 2016 Flinnder’s Miracle was released. It is a story about coping with loss and discovering self-worth. This year Kicker and Flinnder will go on their greatest and bravest adventure to date in a sequel to Flinnder’s Miracle, The Rescue of Meep.

Join the best buddies and their friends as they work with a “human” boy to help rescue a small sparrow in big trouble. Once again our characters will show how cooperation and working together can solve even some impossible looking challenges.

A special will be offered when the book is released that will offer these two books at a reduced price. Stay tuned for future updates as Matt Stinnett works diligently on creating the illustrations for this latest adventure.

Halloween Helpers has arrived!

loe res front cover for website

Copies of Kicker and Flinnder’s latest adventure are available now!

See how helping is just a way of life in the Golden Meadow. Young and old, friends help friends in big and small ways.

This is a light-hearted story where we meet the new character Lily the little brown bat. When she is unsure of what to be for Halloween, Kicker and Flinnder help her decide.

Each of the friends have managed to find costumes that fit their personalities perfectly. From Spike the dragonfly as a fighter jet and Terry the three-toad tree toad as a clown and Hawkeye the five-spotted hawkmoth as the famous English detective Hemlock Shores, our characters look fantastic in their costumes!

This story has considerably more verbiage than previous stories. Where our previous five books have targeted readers up to third grade, Halloween Helpers will prove a good read for fourth and fifth graders as well.

This is the first book illustrated by Matt Stinnett. Matt has stayed true to our beloved characters with a fresh new style. His illustrations practically jump off the pages.  Kicker and Flinnder are really enjoying working with him. They are already talking to him about their next adventure.

Matt and Ms. Meyer have discovered that they have much in common. As well as both being life-long Hoosiers, they share a Halloween birthday! They look forward to bringing a new adventure to you in spring of 2020!


Kicker and Flinnder are Happy to Introduce Matt Stinnett

With the retirement of Ms. Bronowski, Ms. Meyer had the daunting task of finding a new illustrator who could stay true to our characters while bringing the same level of creativity. Through the recommendations of others Ms. Meyer was blessed to find the talented Matt Stinnett.  Halloween Helpers is their first collaboration and Ms. Meyer could not be happier with the outcome. (Please read more about Matt on his Facebook page Matty’s Mayhem.) Matt and Bonnie have found that they have some very interesting things in common, particularly that they both have birthdays on Halloween. It was perfect that their first collaboration would be Halloween Helpers.

Growing up in a large family, surrounded by brothers, sisters and cousins, gave Matt a happy childhood and the fertile imagination that led him to a life in the arts. Matt is a 1986 graduate of The American Academy of Art in Chicago, IL. He has been working as a freelance illustrator and graphic artist ever since.

He also enjoys acting, song writing and music performance, when time allows. Matt is a lifelong resident of Lowell, Indiana where he and his wife Jenny raised their son Benjamin and their daughter Katie.
