John Brooks' new chapter book, illuminates children's imaginations this holiday season. Bobby Bright, a magical Christmas tree light bulb, is determined to make it to the front of the tree this year, and have the best Christmas ever.

John Brooks, semi-retired sportscaster, and owner of the high profile Sportscast Productions. Inc., shifts gears and releases the first in a five book children's holiday series. "Bobby Bright's Greatest Christmas Ever" (ISBN 9780978822705) begins the amazing adventures of a special little Christmas tree light bulb that truly makes the holidays shine.

Bobby Bright is an exceptional little light bulb. While being created in the world's largest Christmas tree light bulb factory, a conveyor belt malfunction accidentally shocked Bobby with a powerful jolt of energy, infusing him with magical powers. The mishap goes unnoticed, and the 25-strand Bright family are boxed, and eventually purchased by the elderly McGillicuddy's.

Christmas is a regimented affair in the McGillicuddy household. Every year, the tree goes up the day after Thanksgiving, and every year, Bobby and his family are placed at the very back of the tree. After nine years of being overlooked, Bobby is determined to make a change, and uses his amazing powers to land their lone strand on a tiny tree bought especially for the McGillicuddy's grandson. Remington soon discovers that there is something very different about the bulbs on his tree, especially the blue one right up front.

The fun begins as the Bright family experiences what every bulb is created for - to bring joy and happiness through their shining light. Surprise, suspense, and loads of good times are ahead as Bobby Bright's Christmas gets better and better! With an ending that alludes to next year's sequel, this is the exciting beginning to a holiday series that children will anticipate for years to come.

Brooks enlisted the help of five former Disney/Warner Bros/Hannah-Barbera animation artists to create the book's 10 illustrations. With movie credits like Toy Story, Lion King, and Beauty and the Beast, these designers have skillfully captured the essence of the story. Geared for a seven to nine year-old reading audience, Bobby Bright is highly appealing for children of all ages and a great choice for parents to read to their younger ones. With underlying messages towards the power of imagination, that persistence creates opportunity, and the value of a strong family bond, this magical story is a must for the holiday season.
