In “The Adventures Begin” (published by Archway Publishing), the first book by Jen Jellyfish, M.M., in the Booker T. Bear series, follows Booker and his best friend Dahlya Dragonfly as they use Booker’s magic jacket to travel the world, seeing amazing things and learning wonderful new words.

Booker T. Bear of Juneberry Square and his best friend, Dahlya Dragonfly invite readers to go on an extraordinary journey with them. Adventures at home prompt Booker to put on his magic Jet-Away jacket that transports to the two friends to a real-life destination, far across the globe. All senses are ignited when Booker and Dahlya are caught in a hot lava storm, discover an unusual life-form, and experience the sights and tastes of an ancient culture. Throughout the adventures, Dahlya shares her favorite treats: long, juicy weird words to eat. The adventures end in Dahlya’s Diner where she serves her delicious Weird Word Stew and a kid-friendly recipe.

“‘The Adventures Begin’ encourages fun in learning to read while cultivating knowledge of world geography and a foreign culture,” Jellyfish says. “The main characters, Booker T. Bear and Dahlya Dragonfly, learn to embrace differences; care for our world, communities, and one another; practice teamwork and problem solving; and expand their vocabularies and culinary experiences.”
