About the Author:

Jarrett Mentink took to writing children's stories while attending graduate school at Washington State University, where he received his PhD in Higher Education. Following his graduate work, he started Kids In The Clouds, a children's book company, to put reading material on airplanes for kids. Jarrett's stories have been carried on Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air. His sports star books share positive, moral messages in rhyme with elementary age children via their sports heroes (Shaun Alexander, Bret Boone, Ken Griffey Jr., Kasey Keller, and Felix Hernandez). Along with operating Kids In The Clouds, Jarrett teaches at Seattle Pacific University in the Health and Human Performance Department. He resides in Snoqualmie, Washington, with his wife Angie (a sportscaster for ROOT SPORTS) and their two boys, Jaxen and Chase.

Review:

My kids brought home this short masterpiece by Jarrett Mentink.The book is a cartooned look at the early life of Felix as he came to the Mariners and eventually won the Cy Young. The artwork is great, there are several references to Dave Neihaus, and the book is a joy for young kids. Kudos to the author and great job! --Amazon Customer
