We all know pepperoni doesn t grow on palm trees; that is, unless you stumbled upon the Pepperoni Palm Tree! Turns out, a pint-sized explorer named Frederick does exactly that on a far away island way out to sea. The problem? Frederick can t find evidence of any more pepperoni bearing palm trees, and this makes The Pepperoni Palm Tree a little uneasy. After all, in the wild jungle all around him, the other trees can be downright mean to things that don t quite belong. After author Jason Killian Meath published his first book in 2009, his 7 year old son Aidan asked whether he could write a book. His dad told him to grab a pencil and get to work. Aidan returned a short time later with The Pepperoni Palm Tree. When my Dad said to start writing my own book, I thought of my two favorite things - pizza and the beach! said Aidan, now a fourth grader at Mater Dei in Bethesda, MD. Jason thought it was an excellent title for a book, and together father and son embarked on a 2 year journey to publish their first children s book The Pepperoni Palm Tree (FUZE Publishing; 2012; $21.99 hardcover). It s a story portraying the challenge of being true to oneself and celebrates the uniqueness that enables each of us to shine, and thus enlighten the world.
