Cookie Chronicles

About The Series

Full of hilarity and heart, this illustrated series features Ben Yokoyama, a quirky, compassionate, empathetic--and literal-minded--eight-year-old boy whose journey begins the day he is advised to "Live each day as if it were your last" in a fortune cookie message, and interprets this as "Today might be the last day of your life. Seize the day!"

About The Author(s)

Author/illustrator, husband/wife duo Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr are co-creators of dozens of books for children and adults, including the critically acclaimed The Real McCoys and Cookie Chronicles series. They spend their summers running a commercial fishing operation on the Alaskan tundra, and the rest of the year writing books, visiting schools, speaking at conferences, and living in the hayloft of an old barn on Maryland's Eastern Shore with their four kids.
