Will and Arthur - Our first book without pictures!


Will and Arthur is FREE Saturday and Sunday Sept. 1st and 2nd!  Please download and tell your friends. Thanks, and Happy Labor Day to our US readers.

We love picture books, and we love Silly Poems, but sometimes you have a story you want to tell and you simply cannot fit it into those formats. That is how Will and Arthur came about. As a child I loved Arthurian books. I still enjoy them today and highly reccomend Bernard Cornwell's Winter King series for those who have not yet discovered it.

I have always wanted to create my own King Arthur story and today Jake Dog Stories is proud to present Will and Arthur. The story takes place in a sleepy town in Southern Indiana.  Will is a middle school student trying to navigate his way through daily life.  He is content, has a great family, does well in school, but he lacks a passion for life.

King Arthur, with Merlin's help of course, has discovered the science and magic behind time travel. Unfortunately some of King Arthur's foes have as well and Arthur has begun building a Round Table across time. Will doesn't feel special, but Arthur senses something special in him, and encourages him to train to become a knight.

You can see the first installment of Will and Arthur by clicking on this link.  Will and Arthur

We hope you like it.  Stay tuned to the blog for more Silly Poems and future installments of Will and Arthur.

Wobbly Wheel - A Silly Poem

   My bike has a wobbly wheel.
It happened racing down a hill.

I hit a rock and flew up higher,
Than advised for my front tire.

Now when I ride I waver and weave.
I've had to add time to when I leave.

I used to ride straight, south to north,
But now I have to go back and forth.

Good Dog!

We love to write stories and poems for little ones. Teaching kids how to count, or just making them smile is a noble pursuit. However, sometimes something happens in the news that needs no illustrations. No rhyming. No story telling at all.

Linked below is such a story. This could be the greatest dog ever, and is a great story to share with your little ones.

   Good Dog!

Rhymes With Wiggle!

We just published our first book of Silly Poems. Rhymes With Wiggle, Silly Poems to Make You Giggle! is now available on Amazon.

If you are a frequent visitor to our blog you will already know ten of the twelve poems included in this book. We did some editing and updated illustrations for some of those, but also included are two totally new poems that have never been published on our blog!

One of the new poems is about a scraped knee, and the other is a poem about a mom who is a little confused about why her little one is crying and laughing at the same time.  If you like our Silly Poems we think the two new ones will become favorites.
