R. O. Jones announces his entry into the publishing scene with the release of “Perky and Camille: True Friends” (published by AuthorHouse), a children’s book about celebrating differences, accepting others and understanding other cultures.

Perky is a young pig who lives with a bunch of other pigs on a farm in Kansas. He has problems with his ears. They perk up whenever he hears noises or someone whistles. What happens when Camille the cow befriends Perky and others in the barn that are not as accepting?

An excerpt from the book reads:

The zookeeper said, “Those animals have been running around and playing with each other ever since I put them together. That sure changes the kids minds, They actually see how animals can get along with each other. They don’t have to be scared of or make fun of others. They can actually become best friends.”

“Youngsters usually like animals and stories about them. Parents and teachers like to use stories to help educate children while making the experience entertaining. I believe it is vitally important to stress to young children various elements of trust, compassion, and understanding of others,” Jones says. When asked what he wants readers to take away from the book, he answers, “Individuals can become close friends even if they are totally different and have very different backgrounds. Anyone can overcome distrust and come to understand another’s feelings and needs.” For more details about the book, please visit https://www.authorhouse.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/831768-perky-and-camille
