Day 25 of #scrypthalloween shows my first children’s book A LITTLE GIRL IN THE LAND OF THE HICCUPS. I wrote this story for my daughter, Lana, and it quickly became a reader favorite. With outstanding watercolor artwork by @dpipito it brought my writing into a whole new genre.
Available at lulu.com, Amazon, and B&N in print and digital…
official description: When a little girl finds herself a long way from home, she must help her new Eskimo friends to rid their land of the Hiccups, miniscule little creatures that are more of an annoyance than anything. From award winning author, Rick Pipito, the story is aimed for a young female audience, but can be enjoyed by all. With art by Dan Pipito, this heart warming tale will inspire young readers to never give up hope and put their best thoughts forward.
Check out the trailer for my new children’s book A LITTLE BOY IN THE LAND OF THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS, available now with art by Dan Pipito
Today is new release day for A LITTLE BOY IN THE LAND OF THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS!!!! My second children’s book (which exists in the same universe as A LITTLE GIRL IN THE LAND OF THE HICCUPS) is now available in print. Grab your copy today at http://www.lulu.com. It will also be available in other markets soon, but why wait, when you can get a first edition printing, and add on any of my prior books as well?
A LITTLE BOY IN THE LAND OF THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS was written for my son nearly two years ago. It took a while to get it right, but it was worth the wait. It’s got fantastic artwork by my brother, Dan Pipito, and a heart warming story with a lesson.
When a young boy refuses to sleep he finds himself trapped in the Land of Sleepless Knights. This is where all children go when they don’t get enough rest. Can he figure out how to escape in time or will he turn into one of the Knights and be consumed by the Cranky King?
Follow the adventures of a little girl as she finds herself lost in a village of Eskimos. As she searches for her way home, she uses a bit of intuition to help the villagers rid themselves of annoying little creatures called “the hiccups.”
This is Rick Pipito’s first children’s book with all of the art done by Dan Pipito. It’s the perfect gift for any little girl or anyone who enjoys a timeless tale.

This art, done by Dan Pipito, is just one of many images in the book. The creature represented is one of the antagonist “Hiccups” that have taken over an entire village.
