Author Ken Skinner has been everything from a Creative Arts Director to a Producer of a reality show, but his most challenging and rewarding job he has ever had is being a dad. And while there has been many surprises to being a father, the abundance of lame children’s books was one of the most shocking. Sure, there are plenty of good books like ‘The Lorax’ or ‘Memoirs of a Goldfish’ but they seem to be the exception. His take on writing a children’s book is to do what Disney is so good at doing. Tell a joke that both parents and children can laugh at but for different reasons while moving towards the moral of the story. So he now embarks on the journey of creating super cool books that babies, children and adults will enjoy.
