Parents, Grandparents, Teachers, Librarians and Administrators…


Welcome to the Belden Boy Series!


Are you looking for a heart-warming children’s book series...a series that instills hometown morals and family values through its characters?

          Are you looking for a story with a strong anti-bullying message delivered by girls and boys who overcame their own disabilities and learned to work through friendship problems long ago? 

          Are you interested in an anti-bullying series that is tied to Common Core State Standards for figurative language and perspective…a series that can be read aloud in literacy book groups, classrooms or home school environments?

          If so, then you’ve come to the right place for the children in your life!  Spend a few minutes browsing.  Be part of the Belden Boy experience.  Discover how much the award-winning book series has to offer.  And consider the ‘gift of reading’ to all ages in the Whistleslick Bookstore.

“... children will get twice the educational benefit by reinforcing history lessons and teaching them about cooperation and what makes and stops a bully. All of this does not take into the account that the story is inherently entertaining as well, meaning that readers will devour and absorb Franky's adventures quickly, not unlike those of Tom Sawyer.”
