From the back cover:

Did you ever dream of traveling to an alternate universe? I actually did it. I am the Bear, high school kid.

My life-long wish has been to find my mother who disappeared when I was a baby. An Indian medicine man told me it was possible to find her, but I would have to look in the magical kingdom of my ancestors. My friends said they would go with me if I gave it a shot. So I did. Be careful what you wish for. We promptly found ourselves in a fantasy land where we met Uriah, a talking cocker spaniel. He told me my destiny was sealed by an ancient scroll that prophesied an unlikely hero who would come out of nowhere to save his homeland from destruction by an evil king. He said I was that hero. No pressure.

Life in Uriah’s world is one big twist. Nothing is what it seems. Both good and evil attempt to trick me at every turn, and I continually struggle to separate illusion from reality. My friends might not be who I think they are, and I am forced to trust my life to a lovable, but self-centered dog. I could use a little help. Join me. Together we can solve the secret of the Sceptre.

About the author:

Motivated by his son’s battle with brain cancer and experiences with his beloved dogs and cats, B.E. Boucher created the Jonster the Monster and the Bear trilogy to celebrate the people and animals who opened his eyes to infinite horizons. A vegetarian, the author is dedicated to the humane treatment of all creatures. His characters reflect his convictions as they seek to overcome callous and cruel adversaries with virtue. Hope and humor are powerful ammunition against staggering odds, and every sentient being deserves respect and compassion.

Young people facing health challenges, bullying, or just normal issues are invited to give their troubles the day off and join a band of reluctant heroes fighting to save new, but cherished friends from dark forces.

The trilogy weaves the author’s childhood experiences into adventures filled with unforgettable characters, fun, and inspiration.

Mr. Boucher also penned the Grosswords anthology of short stories for younger readers. In a light, thought-provoking way, Grosswords highlights the tug of war between kids and parents as they find themselves caught up in offbeat situations with surprising twists.
