For countless years, ageless Booker T. Bear—a bright orange plush—has dutifully and quietly served as mascot for The Library Store’s customer service rewards program. And he’s graced a number of colorful reading motivation posters hanging in school libraries, classrooms, and public libraries. Now . . . he’s also a world traveling adventurist!

Without thought or hesitation, I instantaneously said, “Yes! Yes! Yes!” and my own personal adventure into Booker’s unfolding world began to blossom in my mind.
At that time, I was writing and book editing under my real name, Jen Miller. But that would soon change as well, to Jen Jellyfish, M.M. What does the “M.M.” stand for? You’re invited to continue with me “behind the books” as I share week by week more Secrets of Juneberry Square.
