Esther Schonfeld and J.M. Farkas, a mother and son team, have completed their new book “The Not-So-Mean Lady Next Door”: an inspirational story about a boy named James and his friends who discover something about their neighbor that teaches them a life lesson.

According to Schonfeld, “(I am a) published author and practicing attorney, and together with (my) son, J.M. Farkas, (I) collaborated on creating a children’s book written in poetic verse. Inspired by two of his best friends, Andrew and Matthew, and his love for sports, J.M. wrote this story to inspire others to embrace meeting new people and to get to know them as individuals before forming any opinions about them. J.M. is currently in seventh grade. During his free time, he enjoys playing basketball and hockey with his friends. He is an avid fan of anything and everything Harry Potter.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Esther Schonfeld’s and J.M. Farkas’s beautifully illustrated tale centers around ten-year old James, who loves to spend his Saturdays with his best friends, Drew and Matt, playing sports and other games in the backyard.

In this ever changing modern age, James, Matt, and Drew come to understand the importance of the classic message "Don't judge a book by its cover." The message of getting to know people for who they are and not making snap judgments is an essential lesson for all young readers.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “The Not-So-Mean Lady Next Door” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
