"Jennifer Bouani and the gift for writing for children" said Amazon.com TOP 10 REVIEWER Grady Harp. He added, "Every so often a new writer surfaces who along with the company of the likes of Roald Dahl, E.B. White, C.S. Lewis and others has the talent to speak to children about things adult in a manner that is not only informative and correct intelligently, but at the same time keeps in mind the importance of molding the realm of fantasy and tales that still focus the attention of all of us. Jennifer Bouani has the gift and in Tyler & His Solve-a-matic Machine she bows on stage as a skilled thinker and a consummate communicator."
Tyler & His Solve-a-matic Machine (Bouje Publishing, ISBN-10: 0-9779265-0-8, ISBN-13: 9780977926503) is about an orphan boy who invents a machine to help him do his homework and creates a business to manufacture this machine. He must endure many tests set out for him by the Great Spirit of the Entrepreneurs, Soté, before he can officially become a successful business owner and realize his dream of sailing around the world. These tests are symbolic of obstacles encountered by adult entrepreneurs in the real world. They teach business concepts in a simple yet adventurous way showing them how to participate in and reap the rewards of our society.
Tyler Passes The Golden Key (Bouje Publishing, ISBN-10: 0-97792651-6, ISBN-13: 9780977926510 ) As Tyler fulfills his dream of sailing around the world, Giselle returns to Nessibus and the Solve-a-matic factory only to find a creepy man that lurks in a boat in nearby waters, an eerie (and stinky!) fog has settled in, and Tyler's customers have disappeared! The company is on the brink of bankruptcy and to complicate her worries, Tyler gets stuck out at sea with no wind to carry him back home. Giselle faces the greatest challenge of her life as she must figure out how to market the Solve-a-matic Machines to increase Tyler's sales and bring him home.
The message crosses all geographic, gender, racial, and socioeconomic lines empowering kids to reach for their dreams while learning real life lessons. Some of the lessons covered in the story can make all the difference in a kid's future: the importance of dreaming big, protecting an idea, fighting doubts & building self-esteem, hiring the right people, finding the right real estate, networking, making money, and achieving success. "In today's global marketplace of extreme competition," said Bouani, "It is critical more than ever that children learn early the principles of free market trade and how to become leaders in a society."
"Entertaining, educational, inspirational -- an absolutely brilliant book" said Amazon.com TOP 50 REVIEWER Daniel Jolley.
"Fascinating book! This is a fast-moving, suspenseful adventure sure to capture the interest of intermediate-aged readers." said Dr. Darlene W. Daffin, Elementary Administrator, Trinity Presbyterian School. "That the book also teaches basic business concepts in an unobtrusive way is a delightful extra!"
