Jerris was inspired to write the series after seeing a drawing by illustrator, Oliver Batin. With more and more kids becoming involved in the culinary and artisanal worlds, Jerris decided to create a series of books that not only entertain children, but also educate them about cheese.
Written in verse, the family of mice lives in a grocery store, giving them free-range to the dairy section. There’s only one problem standing in their way— Mr. McGrime, the cranky store owner. Still, that doesn’t stop the playful critters, who somehow always outsmart Mr. McGrime.
In Book 1 – “Not’cho Cheese!” – Grandpa Gouda pays a visit to Papa Parmesan, Papa’s wife, Brie, and their son, Reggiano. But when Reggiano eats the macaroni-and-cheese that Brie’s prepared for dinner, the mice must figure out a way of sneaking cheese from the grocery store and into their nook without being caught by Mr. McGrime.
“The Big Cheese Family” is 32 pages with color illustrations and retails for $8.99. It launched on Amazon.com November 8, 2013, and is also available at www.tonyjerris.com and on Kindle.
