Press Release for my friend Olivia! I'm sure we could get a copy if anyone wants to review this and report on it...



Enchanting New Children’s Book Emphasizes Importance of Imagination

Fiscal Pear and Shimmer in the Call of River Whale by Olivia Brooks-Scrivanich is a fanciful children’s story about the adventures of organic characters

KIRKLAND, Wash. (July 1, 2008) – Fiscal Pear and Shimmer in the Call of River Whale, a new book written by Olivia Brooks-Scrivanich, is an exciting children’s story about the escapades of a little pear named Fiscal Pear and a lightning bug named Shimmer.

In the fantasy tale, Fiscal Pear and Shimmer’s annual adventure turns frightening when a diabolical bakery and her wicked henchmen try to catch the walking talking pear. When Fiscal Pear and Shimmer’s friend, SOL, disappears in mid-flight while trying to get the duo to the Council of the Wise, they find themselves cornered by Cutter and his gang in the dead of the night in the forest. Author Brooks-Scrivanich takes readers on a thrilling journey filled with anticipation, creativity and whimsical dialogue.

Brooks-Scrivanich began to let her imagination take hold on a camping trip on the Oregon Coast, jotting down the characters and scenes in her mind from her tent in the wee hours of the morning. The intended short book grew to be a series of four with this book being the first.

In Fiscal Pear and Shimmer in the Call of River Whale, Brooks-Scrivanich is able to showcase her active imagination and great love for the outdoors that she had at a very young age. Both older children and adults will enjoy the suspense as their imagination takes them to amazing places.
