In the spirit of an age old sport of falconry, a young boy, Grant and his wild falcon, Kessy, enjoy hunting games together. Kessy wants to please Grant by bringing him all sorts of things. Even when Grant ignores Kessy, while he is too busy building his tree house, Kessy tries to help. He’s an obedient and loyal friend to Grant, who communicates by his action rather than words. The grand folks are introduced as a collective group of caring seniors who come in the night to finish Grant’s building project, but without Grant knowing. They bring with them their diverse knowledge and expertise of years past through their cavorting and humorous ways. Later, Kessy is stuck in their home, till he snatched a ribbon to take to Grant and escaped out of a window. As two grand folks journey out to track Kessy and retrieve the ribbon, Kessy watches from high above. With his keen eyes he can see danger lurking. He swoops down to help them. He gives the ribbon to them just in time for their escape from trouble. After the grand folks race away chattering, Kessy then continues his flight home to his lonely friend, Grant, with a new, and yummy (?) surprise.

About the Author:

Author and Illustrator: Joan Dee Wilson. After leaving a career as commercial artist serving Detroit's auto advertising, I retired. Although, I soon realized something was missing. That something is what I found with writing and illustrating my first Children's Picture Book: Kessy Ventures. I truly hope young readers will enjoy Kessy and look forward, as I do, to the next episode which I am currently working on.

Review:

Authors Reviews: "Kessy Ventures" is a delightful new book by Joan Dee Wilson. I found it unique in that it involves a rescue plot carried out by a group of seniors! The clever drawings of the characters with their charming expressions and action poses, pulled me right into the story, and by the end they felt like friends. I hope there will be more Kessy adventures to follow." Sylvia Halpert "As a dad and fellow author, and as the reader of several episodes in the Kessy series, I very much recommend this book by Joan Dee Wilson. Her snappy text and vivid illustrations, make her stories come alive and drive home their valuable moral. It's great bedtime reading for a parent to a child but especially for a grandparent to a grandchild." Tom Ulicny "It's a delightfully written and beautifully illustrated book children will enjoy reading again and again. A recommended buy." Madge Lawson "An outstanding story about connections between generations and the illustrations are beautiful! I highly recommend!" Jay Corey "What a wonderful story, filled with adventure. It's perfect for young imaginations and builds great self-confidence for our little ones. Great job!" Tina King
