Former Canton author Jessica Valentine said she was prompted by her own children — ages 3, 5, and 6 — to write a children’s book.

“They inspired me,” she said in an email, “as well as my little boy Beagle, Buddy. He is always getting himself into trouble going on spectacular adventures!”

Valentine, a Walsh University graduate and former St. Thomas Aquinas High School substitute teacher who now lives in England, wrote “Bud & Roo’s Spectacular Adventures — The Beach.” The book is illustrated by Suzy Jones Biggar.

The author and illustrator have self-published the book through Bugle Boy Publishing, but are looking into publishers in the United States to circulate the book in America.

The book retails for $10.99, and it can be purchased from the authors by emailing or by ordering through bookstores.

Valentine said that sales of the book are also being used as a school fund-raising program in England.

“For every book that a school sells, they receive 20 percent to use for school supplies, technology, sports equipment or whatever they wish.” she explained. “We want to remain active within our community and that is how we are giving back.”

The book is aimed at children 5 and younger, said Valentine.
