Jules Older’s new book Special Ed and the White Force has been published by a small, independent US publisher, Three Ravens PublishingJules says “It’s kinda’ sci-fi, kinda’ adventure — three kids have to figure how to save the Earth from the vile and evil, slimy and scary White Force.” The theme, saving the planet, echoes the real-life need to save our precious Earth, but Special Ed and the White Force is a funny, brave, sometimes scary story, never a sermon. The book is available in all genres — hardback, softback, digital and audio — from Amazon.
