Inspired by a European children’s book series, Zoltan and Rita Nemeth began writing tales that were based on their own real life ventures. When Jakey wanted to learn more about the process of making books, the parents quickly adopted a can-do attitude and decided they are going to publish the stories. The book captures the happiness and worries of being a kid, helping children relate to characters that are similar to them. The Nemeth’s love of children shines through each story, evoking the imagination and joy of childhood. These easy-to-follow plots don’t require long explanations or protection from bad dreams. The Stories of Jakey and Vicky serve as a relaxing end to the day, dissolving stress and transporting readers to a calm, familiar place.
Zoltan and Rita were born in Budapes, Hungary; in 1999 they moved to the USA where their son, Jakey was born. In 2008 the family moved to Brisbane, Australia and soon “Vicky arrived”.
The household wouldn’t be complete without their guinea pigs: Punky (featured in the book) and Super, silkworms and fish. In their free time the family loves to travel and explore their new home country.
“Don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve." - Mary Kay Ash
