A wonderful, entertaining, and fulfilling tale filled with terrific characters will surprise everyone as author John Calleri releases through Xlibris, Angelo and the Yellow Giant. School bus drivers, parents, children, and those who have interest in what could or does happen in some pupil-carrying school bus operations will take a journey to understanding and feeling the joy and fulfillment of doing the things they really love to do.
Angelo and the Yellow Giant follows the journey and exploits of Angelo Poole from being a teenager to becoming a lawyer and later on, a school bus driver. Angelo is a handsome lad from a well-off family who, as a teenager, works in one of his father’s warehouses during the summers. It gives him a sense of enjoyment, aside from meeting new friends. Through this venture, he uncovers his interest in becoming a lawyer and subsequently achieves his goal. His creativeness, wit, high-society family connections, and their business acquaintances were most essential to aid the young attorney in building a healthy clientele. But beyond his success lies the extreme desire to become a school bus driver—which he later achieves because of a perfect opportunity. What will be his adventures with the yellow giant, and how will being a school bus driver make a difference in the life of a rich and successful attorney?
A can’t-put-it-down read, Angelo and the Yellow Giant is an authentic representation of a true-life story that puts its reader in the school bus driver’s seat—letting them feel the essence of the occupation and experience the enjoyment and reward it gives.
Angelo and the Yellow Giant will be featured at this year’s Frankfurt International Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany on October 6 to 10, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
