Pinnacle Book Achievement Award Winner – Sebastian Meets Marvin the Monkey!

I am so excited to announce that my children’s book, Sebastian Meets Marvin the Monkey just won a Pinnacle Book Achievement award! I am thrilled to receive this prestigious award for my book. Receiving this award makes me feel truly blessed. Thank you, Pinnacle, for giving me this award!

This book was written for my youngest grandson who said he wanted to have an award for his book – well now he does! He will be excited to hear this news. I called him right away to announce the news. He was very excited! His sister’s book, Lamby the Lonely Lamb received a Mom’s Choice Award back in 2014. He wanted to have his own award!

Sebastian Meets Marvin the Monkey
    Janice Spina
Children’s Interest


When a little boy, Sebastian, goes to the zoo he meets Marvin the monkey. Sebastian loves monkeys and likes to watch them climb the trees. Something amazing happens when Sebastian’s toy phone suddenly plays music.

Children will learn how important it is to be kind to animals and that animals have feelings too like humans and deserve our respect.

I feel pure joy writing for children and hope with God’s help and blessing to continue to write many more fun adventures for children to read and enjoy. I do enjoy writing for MG/PT/YA and 18+ too!

My goal as an author of Novels for 18+ is to encourage everyone to read daily to enhance their lives and increase their creativity and good health. Please keep reading and I will keep writing. Happy reading everyone!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
