Author Jason Edwards
Award Winning Author Jason Edwards has developed a series of books that are at once funny, moving, scary, and useful for helping children overcome anxieties. In his Mom's Choice Award Winning series, The Chronicles of the Monster Detective Agency, Edwards created parables which subtly impart important lessons for dealing with many children’s issues. The inaugural title, Will Allen and the Great Monster Detective (ISBN: 978-0-9789512-0-7, $5.95), is the adventure of a clever but timid boy whose fears have literally come to life, and how he learns to conquer them. Written for 7-12 year old readers who may already enjoy Bailey School Kids, The Magic Tree House, and Goosebumps books, this humorous mix of Ghostbusters and Monsters Inc. adds a new tool for challenging childhood demons by metaphorically providing young readers with a model for confronting their own fears. Will, an underage, academically advanced, 5th grade boy, searches fruitlessly for help until a strange business card appears in his book bag, instructing him how to summon Bigelow Hawkins, the Great Monster Detective. With Bigelow’s help, along with the use of a very special flashlight and magnifying glass, Will must learn how to confront the monsters and uncover the secret of the dreaded Hidden Beast before it’s too late.
