The Cousins Are Coming
Author and lifelong educator Kay Jones, and award-winning illustrator Peter Trimarco, have released new childrne’s book; The Cousins Are Coming. With lyrical rhymes and playful illustrations, Jones and Trimarco capture how young cousins gathered together under one roof unleash chaos, comedy and above all, camaraderie.
With energy and imagination, the cousins move from one technology-free moment to the next, all witness by whimsical animal sidekicks. Whether it’s a spirited game of hide and seek, or unauthorized spying on the parents, there are plenty of laughs at the adults’ expense.
The Cousins Are Coming is perfect for children ages 3-9, with the magic of family shown through relatable interactions between the children, some coming-of-age moments, a touch of tenderness, and the building of memories.
Kay Jones is a 40-year teacher, having shown in Oklahoma, Arkansas and presently in Dallas, Texas. As well as the children in her classroom, her five grandkids are inspiring her to think and learn, and above all, to chuckle.
The Cousins are Coming is her first picture book, and it shows the affection, the entertainment and the battles that happen when the cousins in her family come together.
Jones initially wrote this rhyme as a piece for children to perform aa a theater, while encouraging them to add their own special touches to the performance. Jones brings her mind and zest for literacy to class every day, and now her own extraordinary touch to the printed page.
Peter Trimarco started his professional doodling career as an editorial cartoonist before turning to commercial art and designing packaging for the music industry. While staying in the entertainment field, he published a trade magazine for the film industry and brought his creative juices to the printed page for youngsters.
Peter is the illustrator of the critically acclaimed “It’s Just So” book series (Lizzy’s World), which he co-wrote with his wife, Brenda Faatz.
