Quote Graphic

"It is a remarkable statement to assert that a children's book can indeed save lives. This one has and will for years to come. Carving out an unexpected and important niche, Jon Holsten does more than simply entertain and educate children (and their parents) but he equips, infuses and empowers them against those who would do them harm. Best of all, he does it a stunningly beautifully, brilliant and sensitive way. Jon Holsten will never know how many he has touched and how many lives he has saved. Bravo and thank you!"

-David Avrin, CEO Group Chair with Vistage International
