Gregg B. Jackson is a retired university professor. He gets his ideas for stories from “anywhere, everywhere, and somewhere else.” Aimed at 4- to 7-year-olds, the stories are mostly about characters who are confronted by intimidating challenges and eventually rely on their brains and personal resolve to triumph. Jackson intends not only to engage and entertain but to provoke thought and encourage character in his young audience. A website at http://www.CoolHeadStories.com offers questions for children’s reflection, comments submitted by readers, and a means of contacting the author.

Bad Dreams Away
The Three Little Swine: A Revisionist History

Very imaginative retelling of the Three Little Pigs. One thing in common: the pigs were pretty stupid in both renditions! I am reminded of Orwell and as an adult I perceived the hidden agenda. I am not sure children will understand the author's intent, and I think they will still prefer the original version.
