Based in Portland, Oregon, The Adventurous Book of Adventure is a story that could happen to any group of brave kids, maybe! The story is told from the kids’ point of view, as a walk in the park turns into the adventure of a lifetime.

Can you share a little on your background and how you became a children’s book writer?

The Adventurous Book of Adventure: What Happens When Kids Fall in a Hole by J. Zelen is a funny and exciting novel for all ages.  It stars a girl named Lucy Green who, tired of her “boring” life, accidentally embarks on a huge adventure when she and her cousin Jessica find a hole in the ground and fall in it.  Passing through a tunnel at the bottom of the hole, they unknowingly enter a whole world separate from our own.  On the other side, the girls are kidnapped by a spooky villain and locked in a dragon’s castle.  However, they don’t wait around to be rescued, but instead set out to prove that kindness and resourcefulness go a long way.
