LOS ANGELES, CA – 12/5/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Following in the footsteps of legendary children’s author Dr. Seuss, first time children’s book author, actor, filmmaker, TEDx speaker, G. Brian Benson, has published his debut illustrated children’s book “Steve The Alien” to overwhelming response. The enchanting rhyming tale of boy-meets-alien, illustrated by former Disney illustrator Paul Hernandez, became an instant #1 Best-seller the first day of its release on Amazon’s bestseller list for children’s books in the Children’s General and Other Myth Books category, and Benson said he couldn’t be happier. Bookstores caught by the surprise news are now scrambling to stock up.
Through its skillful and colorful combination of clever Suess-esque rhymes and illustrations, “Steve The Alien” tells the story of young Zeke, a schoolboy who anticipates making another routine walk to school one wintery morning when he suddenly encounters a lovable space alien named Steve — who has unexpectedly landed on Earth in the middle of a demanding galactic scavenger hunt – determined to find the perfect pair of shoes! Young readers will delight in this enchanting rhyming encounter that not only teaches them the importance of mastering new words, but the meaning of sharing possessions, and perhaps most importantly, that to make a friend, you first have to be one.
“I’ve always enjoyed writing fun, rhyming stories and decided to center this around a quirky loveable alien named Steve because it seemed to me to be the perfect way to engage young readers today, many of whom are space buffs,” said Benson who publishing the book under his own innovative company Reawaken Media. “I knew I was onto something special when my own nieces kept grabbing the book, wanting me to read it with them over and over again. Being a parent, I know how important it is to teach children about the meaning of friendship. Based on the magnitude of responses I’ve been receiving, I couldn’t be happier with how results are turning out.”
“G. Brian Benson does a superb job of bringing this short story to life, especially with the help of Paul Hernandez, whose wonderfully bright and colorful illustrations jump right off the pages. The way this story is presented, I could actually visualize a teacher, parent, or librarian reading this book to a group of children…” (awarded five of Five Stars)
