    How lovely it would be, if you, as a publisher, were interested in out-of-the-box, highly imaginative, children’s picture book manuscripts? For instance, I have written THE NIGHT I MET THE ZOONY GOONS, a picture book manuscript that teaches “cool” and enjoyable words to the picture book age, while teaching them to count, as well. Sample: One quiet night in late July, While sitting in my room, A spaceship all green with lights and things, landed with a BOOM! Out popped these charming creatures, All humming a sassy tune, One shouted “I’m Hip,” another, “I’m Pip,” the rest, “WE’RE ZOONY GOONS!”
    Oh well. Just a thought.
    I am Johnny Ray Moore, a poet & children’s author, with 5 children’s books in print. They are: HOWIE HAS A STOMACHACHE, A LEAF, THE STORY OF MLK, JR., a 200-word board book biography, MEET MLK, JR., a picture book, and, BUT STILL, WE DREAM (a novel in verse). My email is JMOORE92591@GMAIL.COM. My cell no. is (919) 417-6658. THANKS for listening.
