Cape Coral Man Wants Children to Read More – Publishes First Book


Cape Coral, FL (USA), October 03, 2014 -- Inspired and encouraged by his two granddaughters, Dennis Marcoux, decided to write his first children’s book, “Adventures of Nutty and Twittles, Oh Nuts! I Lost My Little Sister!” Published by Halo Publishing International, the book characterizes forest animals and includes a teaching element for children centered on listening to adults and learning safety.

“I want kids to be encouraged to get something out of the book more than just a story. I want them to learn a moral,” says the retired 68-year-old Cape Coral man.

He also wants them, including his nine grandchildren, to read more because he believes it is not encouraged as much as it should be in our culture. Marcoux says reading is important because it ultimately leads to greater creativity. He compares his philosophy on reading like playing dominos.

“Reading leads to imagination, that leads to ideas, and ideas lead to creativity. You can’t get to the last domino until you start the first one,” he says.

For Marcoux, he has always been interested in the creativity of the arts. He’s dabbled in commercials and small stage acting. He says his writing days started in elementary school, but had no purpose. That changed in 2000 with the birth of his mentally challenged granddaughter, Ellie Rose. He wrote a short poem about the love he witnessed between his wife and daughter for this newborn baby. Family members loved the poem, and from that point on he says his writing had a purpose.

It wouldn’t be until 2009, when his five-year-old granddaughter, Molly, inspired him to write short stories. Marcoux said they would take walks through the woods, and it was the animals that fascinated her—namely the squirrels. It was through his relationship with Molly and her imagination that led him to write his first children’s book.

Marcoux is currently working on a series of books with Nutty and Twittles that he hopes will continue to teach morals to children, as well as open up their imagination and develop their creativity.

You can purchase “Adventures of Nutty and Twittles, Oh Nuts! I Lost My Little Sister!” through Halo Publishing International. It sells for $12.95.

Originally from Worcester, Mass., Dennis Marcoux worked in the manufacturing business for most of his life. Now he is retired and resides in Cape Coral, Florida. In his spare time, you can find him reading books as a volunteer in elementary schools and children's hospitals. He is a member of the Gulf Coast Writers Association of Fort Myers, Florida.
