Rollover to Zoom 



There is nothing more important in this world than our children, and in Bob Fessler's case, his grandchildren. It is the sound of their laughter that fills a room with warmth and happiness. It is that laughter that encourages him to write, yet it is the deafening silence of children afflicted with autism that provides his inspiration.In the summer of 2006, he spent time traveling and, having watched his autistic grandson, Kyle, memorize a Shel Silverstein poem in a school talent show, decided that he also could write funny poems. As he wrote more and more, his wife found a publisher that liked the work and published his first book, Hey! You Aren't the Boss of Me! He decided to use the book to raise money for children with autism. He has had the opportunity to speak to thousands of children at many schools as well as communicate with people all over the world as a result of the book and the cause. He has continued to write new poems and tested many of them out on the young audiences. These poems have resulted in his second book, Hey! You're Breathing My Air! The goal is to make children laugh while offering a useful message. "Elton the Elephant" addresses bullying, "Gerald G. Greer" hates everything and suffers the consequences, "Shelly Sally Sandra Schintius" shows that beauty is inside the person and "The Boy in the Chair" tells the story of a lifetime friendship with the boy who spends his life in a wheelchair. All proceeds and donations associated with this book will be donated to children with autism. Special thanks go to the Doernbecher Children's Hospital, Autism Speaks, and CH2M HILL, Inc. for their support in helping children and finding the cure for autism.
