About the author:
Katie Cook adds another string to her bow. Musician, CMT/MTV television host, circus performer, mother, and now author.

Before her television career started in 2001, her band Reno released an album with Curb Records. Promoting the album took her on the road for long stretches of time. These often boring road trips mixed with Katie's wild imagination was Little Big Benny's genesis. It started with the idea that while we may be small in the grand cosmic scheme of things, we also have a universe within as well, which makes us absolutely giant at the same time. Katie dreamed of creating a character that could explore ideas like this while maintaining a sense humor, like the children's entertainment she grew up with offered. When Katie became a mother herself, she knew it was time to take this half baked idea and develop into a full fledged children's book series. Like Big Benny always tells his son, "Gotta shoot for the stars!" While Katie interviews the stars for her job as host of CMT Hot 20 Countdown, she is also shooting for the stars with her Little Big Benny book series. She hopes one day to see it animated.

Katie lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her daughter Daisy Rocket, and their 2 dogs.

Little Big Benny: The Boy Who Didn't Know He Was the Universe

Authored by Katie Cook

Book One in series.
Benny Armstrong Jr. is a young budding astronomer who is very curious about the world he lives in, but what he doesn't realize is that his own body plays host to a variety of microscopic worlds. The inhabitants of these worlds, including the Floofs of Lintopolis, the Beats of Hipville, the Joymen of Lightville, the Buds of TasteTown, and the Zuzus of Jamaland, are no more aware of him than he is of them, but they have a profound effect on one another. In addition to these tiny worlds, Little Benny's every move is monitored by aliens from the Andromeda Galaxy, called Zetas, that like to wreak havoc in Little Benny's life. Between the school bully, Leo, and Little Benny's crush, Lora Lee, the Zetas never run out of mischievous scenarios. Little Benny just wants to understand his place in the universe, but little does he know-he is one.
