About Our Book

Our book is a family project that we worked on together. Our children came up with the story ideas. Each step of the way every family member contributed to each part. When we finished with the story we loved it so much that we wanted to share it with everyone. We decided to have it illustrated by Anna Fox and then published. We hope you enjoy the reading the book as much as we enjoyed creating it.

Join Positive Pete, Grumpy Gus, and Friendly Fred for some afternoon fun as they discover how each of them can see the same adventures a little differently.

This book is only here because of the dedication and (mostly positive) inspiration from Jacob, Jack, Max, William & Charlotte and the support of their amazingly patient (and sometimes grumpy) dad, Travis. They are the true authors!

Living life with a positive attitude changes everything for the better. The choice is yours... Is your glass half full or half empty?
