About the Author:

About the Author: Jil Ross created The Shenanigans Series™ as a result of not being able to find relevant, challenging and thought provoking books that featured African Americans, when my two children became interested in reading chapter books.  All of the stories that I write are inspired by true events, and although the stories are told with humor, they’re also grounded in moral lessons. 

 

I created The Shenanigans Series™ as a result of not being able to find 'relevant,' challenging and thought provoking books for my two children to read when they became of reading age.  I also had a difficult time finding books that featured African Americans in a positive manner. All of the stories that I write are inspired by true events, and although the stories are told with humor, they’re also grounded in moral lessons.   All of the stories that I write are inspired by true events, and although the stories are told with humor, they also grounded in a moral lessons. 

 

Big areas of concern of mine were statistics that revealed how Black children are most affected by discouragingly low reading scores, (compared to other ethnic groups).  My son was a late reader and once he became interested in reading it was difficult to find books that peaked and kept him engaged.  Ironically the ages of 9-11 are when many Black boys loose interest in reading. I believe that my series will keep them curious and motivated. It has been proven that children are often attracted to books when the images on the cover reflect their own.    

 

Each book includes a spelling guide and questions for thought and discussion, or for written responses, a tool that educators appreciate.  –I hope that you will explore and enjoy the series. -Jil
