Two positive books about self-confidence, working hard and following you dream.

From the small town of Gobbleville to the big city of Gollywood, a young turkey achieves her dream of being a movie star. Her name is Anamazie Marie LaBelle and with hard work and a few hard knocks, she is discovered by a talent scout and gets to star opposite Gollywood's biggest star. Besides memorizing her lines, she learns how to work with others and inspire friends. A dragon named Nickerbacher is suppose to guard princesses, at least that's what papa says. But Nickerbacher wants to be a stand-up comedian. Along the way, he befriends the princess and a prince, who encourage him to follow his heart. The stories of Gollywood, Here I Come! and Nickerbacher, The Funniest Dragon are told through captivating, fun stories. Before writing children's books, Terry John Barto directed and choreographed more than 200 regional theater productions. In addition, he was the creative mind behind numerous television and cruise ship live shows throughout the world. When Terry was employed as the creative director for Wings of Dreams Productions, he worked with many diverse ideas and turned them into screenplays for animated films. He also used his experience to help artists develop popular action figures and dolls for several large retailers. ​Terry lives in Los Angeles, California and enjoys Pilates, Yoga, and hiking with his dachshunds, Hunter and Mazie.
