Creators Laura and Jake Gosselin offer an empowering book series for girls and young readers that presents the challenges of childhood through the thrilling and magical world of The Pinkaboos.
About The Authors
As a child, Jake Gosselin had numerous fears, including but not limited to zombies, vampires, ghosts, demons, gelatinous cubes, goblins, large insects, small insects, biting insects, horses, geese, monkeys, grouchy adults, and Brussels sprouts. Now that Jake is an “adult,” all of his fears are crammed into a deep corner of his mind. Occasionally he lets them out to play and writes down what he sees, which apparently makes him a writer. He lives in California with his wife, Laura; daughter, Molly; bearded dragon, Dezi; cat, Mittens; hamster, Peanut; and dog, Chewbacca.
When she was little, Laura Gosselin was afraid of sharks in swimming pools and large bugs with wings. Now that she’s a grown-up, Laura is afraid of laundry, bills, and whiny children. She is also super afraid of spiders. The bigger and hairier they are, the louder she screams. After going to school in New York, living in Canada, and finally settling in Southern California, Laura has come to realize that only three things in life really matter: 1) happiness; 2) happiness; and finally, after much consideration: 3) happiness.
