Storytime for new releases on radio show.


Come and join me as I read and talk about 2 new releases on Stories From Unknown Authors. I will read the picture book What Would You Do If You Were Left At The Zoo? I will also be talking about the newest book in the Joe-Joe Nut Series, The Secret of the Missing Arch. Books can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, as well as on my website at


The elementary school at Acorn Valley holds an art fundraiser to help local animals whose homes were lost due to natural disasters. Four famous local artists--Claude Monet Mongoose, Georgia O'Giraffe, Vincent Van Goat and Pablo Picasso Peacock--have generously donated their weather-themed paintings for a charity auction. But a monkey wrench is thrown into the proceedings when distinguished Gila monster Dr. Ced E. Meant discovers, in a presentation at the Metropolitan Museum before the event, that his invaluable research has been stolen! His findings are so important that they cannot be leaked to the world at large! Meanwhile, more mysterious and fishy things are going on at the art auction, which Detectives Nut and Bill are determined to unravel. Geared for older children (and appealing enough for adults), this third entry in the series once again paints a delightful world of animal protagonists--teachers, scientists, etc.--using colorful illustrations with the lively black-and-white cartoons of Karwoski. Each of the animals--garbed like humans--has personality to spare, and they make amusing references to bills, hooves and tails. A genuinely crafty, complex mystery (including secret panels, art theft and characters who aren't as they appear) combines seamlessly with info about weather and art.


Sheldon is excited to visit the zoo with his mama and learn about all the great animals that live there. But when the zoo begins to fill with people and mama tells him to stay close so he won't get lost, Sheldon begins to wonder what it would be like to be left behind at the zoo and work there all day. As the pair explores, Sheldon tries to decide which animal he would study. Which one will he choose?
