Based on New York Times bestselling author Gary Chapman's book, The 5 Love Languages®, A Perfect Pet for Peyton tells the entertaining and playful story of five children, each of whom discovers his own pet and personal love language.

“I've been writing and producing books for over twenty-five years now and have worked with hundreds of people in publishing. During that time I've learned that some of the people you connect with are gems—great people with good hearts who are passionate about their work, extremely talented, absolutely reliable, professional and a joy to work with. Jill Ronsley is one of those gems and I highly recommend her.”

"In this, my first publishing project, Jill was helpful and patient as she professionally lifted me up. Communication is very important to me, and hers was impeccable, timely, consistent and thorough. From editing to interior design and completion, with Jill sending my book files to my printer, the process was seamless. I highly recommend Jill as both an editor and interior designer. She offered great guidance, and I would certainly come to her again for my next book."

They learn little-known basketball facts and can access a comprehensive glossary of terms that every child who wants to play basketball should know. A special element of the story is that it teaches 10 signs in American Sign Language (ASL), which broadens the reach and purpose of the book for all children.

"Working with Jill is one of the best decisions I've made as a self-published author.  She was very professional during the entire process, and addressed any questions or concerns that I had in a prompt manner.  Jill is also very knowledgeable in the children's book publishing arena, and her candid advice proved to be invaluable.  She saved Shelly's Adventures a ton of money by providing me with beneficial tips along the way.  I highly recommend her services and will be working with her on future titles." —Kentrell Martin
