New Book Builds Self-Esteem & Confidence So Kids Can Go to School Without Being Cooked!

unnamed (2)

Jim Malloy teamed up with illustrator Hannah Stephey and published The Look Cookers, an entertaining, and creative adventure story for children which shares a  strong message that it is okay (and in fact fun) to be shy. This wonderful tale illustrates that challenges can be overcome with a little courage and imagination.


Matthew is a normal boy in every way but he is shy. He does not like eye contact.


In his lively imagination, he envisions that anyone who looks at him has special powers – they are the Look Cookers.

This is a delightful story about a young boy who has a mission to overcome his shyness. I highly recommend this at a back-to-school book for young children. The story is creative and a must-read and the illustrations are quite detailed and really bring this children’s story to life!
