Battle Ground, WA / Oliver has a Hunger Dragon who rumbles and grumbles. He wants it to go away, but Hunger says he plans to stay. Is Oliver the only one who has a dragon deep inside? Join Oliver as he discovers the power of friendship and the sharing spirit.

This fully illustrated picture book, aimed at young readers from age 5 to 8 years of age, highlights the problem of hunger that affects one out of every five children in the United States. Children who face hunger experience tiredness, a lack of concentration, poor problem solving skills, and are often too embarrassed to ask for help. Oliver’s Hunger Dragon draws attention to these children by depicting hunger as a dragon who follows Oliver everywhere, and how letting people know about Hunger can bring about a change for the better.

Author, Sherry Alexander, drew on her own experiences as a child who was often hungry to write this book. “It was a difficult time for my family, and if it hadn't been for the Portland Police Bureau and their food basket, we would have had nothing to eat.”

Crowd funded and published through Halo International Publishing, Oliver’s Hunger Dragon is scheduled for release August 27, 2014 in both print and as an ebook through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all other ebook retailers. A portion of the proceeds will go to three organizations that help fight child hunger: The Clark County Washington Food Bank, Feeding America, and the Portland Police Bureau Sunshine Division.

About Sherry Alexander:

What can I say? I am passionate about kids. Infants to teens, kindergartners to middle-schoolers, it's all the same to me. I love kids. They are the most inspiring, most courageous, most intriguing people on this earth. They are our future, and the world is in their hands.

As a mother, grandmother, aunt, and great aunt, I recognize the importance of caring for our children, and as such, I hope to inspire them to be all they want to be. I want to encourage them to learn--to read--to understand the world around them--to cultivate new ideas--to help each other--to overcome challenges--to look beyond the present, and to mold a better future.
