“Joey Papagopolis is your typical 10-year-old.

Like most boys that age, Joey has a pet chameleon named Larry and a mysterious Big Red Button that can transport the two of them through time and space to the far reaches of the planet…

Hey, wait a second, that’s not typical at all! In fact, that’s pretty amazing — which is why you will want to follow along as Joey and Larry set off on their first Big Red Button adventure.

An absent-minded wish and an accidental pressing of the button land Joey and Larry smack in the middle of a conflict between a Native American tribe and some English settlers. Yikes!

Are their lives in danger? Can Joey resolve the conflict? Will Larry teach them all how to line dance? Does Larry even know how to line dance?

The answers to these questions and more await you in the fun and fantastic adventure of THE BIG RED BUTTON.

65+ illustrated pages (may vary by device).
Humorous illustrations by Anne Zimanski.

Includes a professionally crafted audiobook. Look for the link inside!”

Globaloonies: The Big Red Button is the first book in a children’s book series about 10-year-old Joey with an average first name and a complicated to pronounce last name, who has a chameleon named Larry and one day finds a mysterious big Red Button which transports them through time and space. This is an amazing start to a series, that manages to combine teaching kids history and an engaging, enjoyable adventure that all kids will enjoy.

They end up in the adventure of a lifetime, in the middle of the conflict between Native Americans and the English settlers. Joey acts like any typical kid, with typical bravado, the weird habits all kids have, and a great dose of humor. It’s easy to relate with Joey and his pet chameleon, and to find oneself completely drawn into their adventure.

The writing is down to earth and exactly on the level kids need. The book offers an intelligent storyline, throws in some historical facts (without making it sound like a dull history book) and manages to craft an amazing story that will inspire kids and grown ups alike. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous too. Recommended to every kid who enjoys reading, and every parent or teacher looking for a great book to read with their kids.
