    Hi, Travis Jonker. I am a second grade school teacher from New Jersey who has written a second published book, a picture book called The Jealous Adjective. It tells the story of an Adjective that no longer wants to work as a servant for King Noun. She wants to share the throne with the king, but he just laughs at her. But the adjective soon makes the king regret his actions by displaying her awesome power. A story filled with so much humor and vivid pictures kids won’t realize they’re leaning the parts of speech.

    Mr. Jonker; I would love for you to review my book. Kindly advise me regarding how I can submit the book to you. Thank you very much.
