About the Book:

Some people are plain and others pretty. Some born for greatness and others for catastrophe. For Julian Dickerson, it feels like his short stature may have matched his expectations for life until a kitten named Sonia leads to a comedy of errors turned riches that’s hard to dismiss. A cast of imperfectly perfect characters find love, revenge, and humanity in the family they chose – no matter what. Often unexpected. Always human. You’ll find yourself among the ordinarily extraordinary humans.


About the Author:

“It’s an exclusive club that everyone can join” is the mission and mantra of Jo Ferrone. A born rebel of eight siblings, she is best known as the co-creator of Angela Anaconda and FidoDido, her homage to the ordinary humans living extraordinary lives – heroes for everyone. Drawn to explore she found her soulmates in dingy diners, cartoon creators drawing rooms and the backwoods of Oyster Bay, Long Island NY. A failed receptionist with abysmal typing skills, she nonetheless writes novels that reveal people as perfectly imperfect as we are. Her first book, a tale of a girl who turns into a PB&J sandwich before being eaten by a horse is of course, a 2nd grade masterpiece found only in her public school library. She resides in Miami, FL on the beach with an entourage of animal companions… and wouldn’t have it any other way.
