"What a remarkable book, I have all of the books from this author. Wonderful stories that teach great lessons."


The Final Pet Stop: Wonderful story, so touching

"What an amazing book! This book is so beautifully written and illustrated and will help so many people, big and small. Dealing with loss is difficult and this book certainly eases the pain by teaching us important lessons that we can all share. The generosity of Helping Tales Publishers is also something to be commended. Not only will your spirits be lifted when dealing with loss, but others will also be given the gift of donation from the sale of each book. Bravo HTP!!"


The Final Pet Stop: Beautiful book!!

"I really enjoyed this book. It is for adults, as well as children. I would love to see these books used in schools to teach children to be kind to animals. Pit Bulls can be super sweet and good dogs. We judge them by their looks and breed, before giving them a chance to prove themselves. This story takes us on a journey where a little pup, his litter mates and mom are living a hard core life. Rescuers come in the nick of time. Good book for all dog lovers."

The Contented Cat

The Most Incredible Journey - A Pibble's Path: Beautiful book!!

"Thank you to James and Timothy for writing this much-needed book about the plight and misconceptions regarding this very misunderstood breed. This book is great for adults and children alike, and provides education on the actual, loving nature of the pit bull. I have bought several copies for myself and friends. The stories about real-life rescued pitbulls are heartbreaking and heartwarming alike. Bravo - a must read!"

The Dinosaur's New Shoes: REMARKABLE!!!

"This is must for parents, and what you should be reading to kids tonight.

Just a great little children's book parents and teachers can entertain their kids in a positive light!"


The Dinosaur's New Shoes: Read This To Your Kids Tonight!

"Delightful illustrations and story. It touches on bullying and how a child can deal with it, but in a very light, sweet way. It is about befriending others, doing good (anonymous) deeds, and "paying it forward." A very upbeat, colorful, fun book that children and adults will love!"


The Dinosaur's New Shoes: Sweet story. It's about befriending others.

"This is a brilliantly written and beautifully illustrated book on one of the most important subjects facing our youth today, bullying. I believe it is so important to teach our children at an early age about kindness, compassion and how to stop/prevent bullying. Too many senseless child/teen/young adult deaths have been caused because of bullying and people everywhere need to take a stand! I encourage everyone with children of all ages to get a copy of this charming book and read it to them. This is an important topic that needs to be addressed with our children and this book is the perfect way to open up that conversation."

Patches' Awesome Day: A Delight To Read and Share

"My daughter and I loved reading Patches' Awesome day together. We enjoyed the heart felt story and laughed at how true to life the dog's mannerisms were. In the day to day life of a dog, may they all have an awesome day like Patches!"
