The Firehouse Cafe, or, My Dad Wrote ANOTHER book!


My prolific father Steve Sandler has a brand-new children’s book out! It’s called The Firehouse Cafe.

Here’s his description of the story:

“The town of Pepperell is nestled in rolling hills of a mythic landscape along with the equally charming towns of Saltenburg and Milkendale. These hamlets have much in common; lovely old firehouses, manned by firefighters who have rich culinary traditions, and fire free histories. Pepperell’s would be heroes Joe, Ernie and Cajun Clyde decide to make their common dream of owning a fine café come true while remaining honorable public servants. There’s humor, drama, irony, a heavy dose of humanity and a cleverly twisted ending that will leave you with a smile on your face. Welcome to The Firehouse Café.”

Melissa Wyman, a distant cousin of mine, illustrated. This is my favorite picture I’ve seen from it so far.
