“The Adventures of Pook and Boogee: The Boys Meet Mr. Jones” is a story of two boys-one a precocious inventor and the other his lovable brother—who go back in time to meet the African American inventor Frederick McKinley Jones. Mr. Jones is best known for his portable refrigeration system; in fact, this system was used during World War II to transport blood for transfusion, medicine for the sick, and food for the soldiers. Although prolific, Mr. Jones did not receive credit for all of his scientific efforts. The Adventures of Pook and Boogee tells the story of Mr. Jones and his incredible advancements as he teaches the boys important life lessons in the process.

About the Author

Eric R. Anderson was born in Arizona and raised across three states: Ohio, Indiana, and Texas. Eric holds a master's degree in rhetoric and writing from Northern Arizona University. As a high school English teacher, he enjoys "passing on" his love for classical literature to his students. Eric believes education should challenge the mind and uplift the spirit. Pook and Boogee is an attempt to do both.
His first foray into children's literature included classics like The Frog Who Cannot Jump and The Untidy Teacher.Both earned him high marks from his first and second grade teachers. Art has always been important to Eric. From an early age, he displayed his works on his parent's refrigerator door; some are now on display on the "family art gallery" wall in the game room. Eric began painting in his teen years and still finds joy in putting a brush to paper. A self-professed nerd, he spends time playing Dungeons and Dragons and board games with his family. He has also had quite an interesting athletic career: to our knowledge, he still holds the Grimmer Middle School record for the 200-meter dash.
