Lionel is a character to love!

Hi everyone!  I hope your Fourth was great!                                                                                                                          Paul Hewitt and son

I am happy to introduce Paul R. Hewlett.  I thought it fitting for Paul to be my guest today.  He is an Air Force vet.  Thank you so much, Paul, for your service, and for keeping us safe and free.

Paul has written a series for children called Lionel’s Grand Adventure.  A young boy named Lionel is the main character in the stories.  Lionel will steal your heart as he has mine.

All of Paul’s books are written for children.  His aim is to write books that are constructive for them.  He wants it to be a book that encourages the child to read, even if reading is not their thing.

I have to add that this is a wonderful collection of books for parents to have in the home. Grandparents, you can have the books on standby for those weekends or holidays you have the grandchildren.  I recommend these for classroom teachers and in early childhood settings as well.

Paul lives in the mid-west with his wife and a “senior” dog he rescued from a shelter.  He’s a salesman during the day and a writer at night.  At least he is when not helping raise his adorable and handsome grandson!

Read on and see what Paul has Lionel up to!


About Lionel’s Grand Adventure 

The Golden Rule

Meet Lionel, a lovable bully-magnet, as he arrives in Larrystown and discovers a magical Three-Toed-Potbellied Walbaun foot. Follow Lionel’s fun misadventures as he uses the foot’s faulty protective power and learns a valuable lesson about helping others. Lionel and the Golden Rule is the first book in the Lionel’s Grand Adventure series, perfect for young and even  reluctant readers at home or in school.


Turns the Other Cheek

Lionel’s back and his Magical Three-Toed-Potbellied Walbaun Foot is up to its old tricks. Lionel heads off to summer camp and has to room with the meanest, biggest bully there. Young Readers will love Lionel and the lesson he learns this time.

Lionel Turns the Other Cheek is the second book in the Lionel’s Grand Adventure series, great for getting kids to read at home and  for families to read aloud


True Meaning of Christmas

Have you ever wanted something you couldn’t have? Lionel desperately wants a new sled and he will do almost anything to get it. This fun Christmas story follows Lionel from Larrystown to the North Pole. Filled with great Christmas imagery, this book is perfect for young readers and school or family story time. This holiday season, be careful what you wish for, you never know what might happen!



In addition to writing the Lionel’s Grand Adventure books, Paul co-authors a middle grade/young adult blog called Sher A. Hart: My Written Art.
