Mr Z's featured Book

Kindle Cover - The Mayfly _ the Methuselah Tree.jpg
Bookfest First Place Award Winner!

"Time big. Time small. Time held dear. This fable feels as natural and eternal as any of Aesop’s, but the story allows the reader to complete its message without reducing it to a slogan. Mr. Z uses both sensibility and craft to illustrate the joy of being present in the moment."

Meet Mr. Z!

Art teacher, story teller, and brand new grandfather, Mr. Z connects with kids!
Mr. Z was born a long time ago. Well, not as long as The Methuselah Tree (who was born more than 4500 years ago), but a lot longer ago than the Mayfly, who was born today.
So far, Mr. Z has had two and half careers: art teacher, advertising copyrighter and a short time as a successful filmmaker.
Mr. Z's short comedy, called Your Were Awesome! was published in Best New Plays of 2019. He also published "Rap Notes: Shakespeare's Greatest Hits" for teens.
And now, he inspires kids and their families with his stories tenderly illustrated and voiced. Mr. Z's stories help us all get through life's ups and downs. Read more...

‘If Ted Lasso wrote children’s books, they’d probably sound like Mr. Z’s.’  - Idaho Mom

"Really, Pinky" is the perfect book for parents and grandparents to share with the young ones in their lives.  As Pinky's life bounces between happy and sad, grownups and kids will be charmed, humored, and filled with a life lesson that we need almost every day of our lives!

Really, PInky
