Meet the Author

Sabin W. Johnson, author of "The Jolly Shop", conceived the idea for this book while he was deployed in the Middle East during operations OIF and OEF. It may seem odd to some that he would have an idea for a children's book during deployment, especially when the word 'sleep' was not in his vocabulary. The way he explains this is: "no matter how big a role I may have had over there, I never felt like it was enough. I always looked at the bigger picture, the grand scheme of things and came to the conclusion that I had much more to share than just serving my country."

Johnson said he hopes to have a bigger overall impact now by bringing smiles to our youths and our families by sharing the creative abilities he's been blessed with.

Next to writing, wildlife, and the outdoors, staying in great shape is also very important to him. He spent 10 years in the US Navy and received awards for the physical fitness programs he implemented to help others succeed.

"When you have a gift that you can use to help and share with others - give all you can, especially if it benefits their health and wellness.

I can only hope that in one way or another I can have a positive impact that will last."

Sabin W. Johnson

    I personally had the pleasure of meeting the author who wrote this book. After meeting him and hearing his story, I went on line and purchased several copies of the book to give to my family and friends. Not only is this a wonderful story, the illustrations are bright and cheerful and children love it. I found the author to be quite a remarkable person and his mission worthy of support. His mission is to provide the children of St. Judes Children's Hospital with signed copies
    of his book, should he have the book sales to be able to afford to print enough copies. Also, the public is welcomed to purchase copies to donate them to the St. Judes children as well. Bestie.

    This book is more than just a Christmas book, it teaches children to have faith in things they cannot scientifically  prove and that joy and happiness is contagious.The book also provides an element of fantasy with the creation of characters like the saber tooth snow tigers.The story emphasizes that Christmas is for everyone and that is not about what you receive, but about the spirit of giving. It demonstrates t o children that by working together you can make great things happen and bring happiness and joy to those around you all it takes is kindness. .

    I read this book to my daughter and she giggled and laughed at all of the pictures.  She kept pointing out the little lab right on the page and giggled.  The story line was excellent and the illustrations are wonderful.  I have never read a Christmas story quit like this one.  Very creative and fun.  My daughter and I enjoyed it so much.  Hope that there is a sequel!

    This book is a magical adventure discovering the deeper meaning of Christmas that is fit for the whole family's enjoyment.  We sometimes get wrapped up in the idea of physical gift giving and forget that the true meaning of giving is just simply being kind to one another.  I highly recommend this book not only for the message it portrays but for the amazing journey you go on without leaving your chair.  The bright and colorful illustrations will capture anyone and everyones attention and keep it locked in till the end.  There is no better "gift" to give a child than a good book and quality time with a loved one. Pick it up...you will not be disappointed!
