It started as a bedtime story and became an epic book series!!
Our beloved author, Mike, used to create bedtime stories for his grandson, Zecharya. It was brilliant 9-year-old Zecharya that helped create some of the signature quirks of the adventuring characters you'll come to love as you make your way between the pages. He contributed to Andrew’s look – the different colored eyes and eyebrows, and the black fur on his legs that makes him look like he’s wearing boots! Throughout the years the many bedtime stories and conversations between grandfather and grandson combined into the Adventures of Jimmy and Andrew.
We hope that this story sparks the imagination of your younger self! What adventures did you want to have? What places did you want to see? Explore the possibilities for discovery and play, while learning historically accurate facts about the world around you!
Better yet, share the adventure with a friend or child in your life! We all need more reasons to connect with one another and a family read aloud is the perfect activity for a warm summer evening.

Secrets to some of our world’s most ancient and mysterious legends are revealed to our two heroes in their first epic adventure.
It’s his birthday, and Jimmy gets to pick out a dog at the humane society. Jimmy has wanted a dog his whole life. But he never imagined he’d find a pet that could talk to him telepathically!
It turns out that the dog is immortal, born in Egypt more than three thousand years ago. With the ability to read both canine and human thoughts, he has roamed the earth ever since, hoping to find others of his kind. Only after he meets Jimmy does he begin to discover clues to his elusive origins.
When Jimmy rescues Andrew from the pound, the first of their many adventures begins. American Stonehenge takes Jimmy and Andrew to the remote forests of northern Washington, where they accompany the boy’s archaeologist parents on the excavation of a newly discovered site. The find – a fully intact duplicate of Stonehenge in England – is shrouded in a mystery that Jimmy and Andrew must unravel.
How did this Stonehenge come to exist? Why do so many strange things happen around it? And what’s this telepathic dog been up to for the past three millennia? These mysteries and more are waiting to be revealed in Jimmy and Andrew’s first great adventure!
