Gophers are burrowing rodents well known for their extensive tunneling activities. In his new book, “The Gopher Keeper” (published by Trafford Publishing), Morey Johnson tells a wonderful story about the unexpected friendship between a young man and a family of gophers. Accompanied by charming, hand-drawn fully colored illustrations, this storybook will warm the hearts of readers while teaching them invaluable lessons about life and friendship.

The story introduces Jack Burns who loved visiting his parents’ farm. Before Jack’s father passed away, he made a puzzling request for Jack to look after the gophers in the fields behind their house. Unlike most people who disliked gophers, Jack’s father thought there was something special about the furry creatures. When it was time for Jack to move into the farm, he makes an astonishing discovery. Could his father be actually right about the gophers? Is there truly something special about them?

With friendship and compassion at its core, “The Gopher Keeper” is a delightful story filled with wise insights and a captivating sense of wonder. It is a great addition to any bedtime story collection.
