Dennis Stuempfle, a lifelong Philadelphia area native now living in Brunswick County, NC has recently published a 3 part children’s series “Adventures of Tchotchke” through Amazon Publishing.

OCEAN ISLE BEACH, NC, October 24, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — For pre-schoolers to early readers (Ages 2-7). This charming and engaging story of a family whose children, like most, want a pet will help your children understand the importance of taking their responsibility seriously and what can happen when they don’t. The beautiful full color glossy illustrations in these stories will captivate children as you or they read about how the family’s once adored pet bunny becomes so sad and feels so unloved that he runs away. In book 2, the bunny wants to be loved and to fit in so badly that he’s willing to become something he’s not, a duck. Of course, bunnies can’t become ducks, but Tchotchke has to learn that the hard way. He finally does and the family realizes that they need Tchotchke as much as he needs them. In book 3, everyone is so happy that they decide to take a camping trip to celebrate. That doesn’t turn out quite the way that they expect but the children learn that everyone has the makings of a hero, as heroes come in all shapes and sizes.

The books can be purchased individually as paperbacks on for $9.95:

Book 1: “Tchotchke Gets Adopted”
