In Fenton’s world, some kids are toons. Some think the change is biological. Others think the change is social. But some kids turn into toons, and Fenton’s father just wants it to stop. He’s even built a Realist movement to ban toons from the real world, hoping that it will keep his own children from following in their estranged mother’s cartoon footsteps.


Tensions rise as the Realists lobby to get their ban set into law, and toons fight for their right to be themselves. Fenton’s father knows he can count on his two boys to stand behind him and his dream of building a safe, a toon-free reality. It’s just too bad that Fenton’s becoming a toon….

Intriguing… But this book needs better electronic distribution.
While I’m certainly no voice of authority, based upon what I’ve heard from the shows on I would recommend the author and/or publisher look into

We are currently working on ebook distribution in Kindle and ePub formats. “Bait and Switch” will be the first book done in that format, with others to follow in the future.

Wow this may be the first Story I buy on my Kindle, Ive had it for less than a full week but to find a Story that touched me so much. Thankyou for posting this much for free it really Sparked my Interest, Especially for me who wanted to be a Toon all throughout my childhood then once I got a little older I now wish that I was a Furry, “Bear” if your wondered.
