Children’s Picture Books
Kara S Tyler is the real world name of the author writing as both Pavarti K. Tyler and P.K. Tyler. Under those pen names, her books have spanned genres and won many awards, but they are geared toward an adult audience. Now that she’s writing children’s books, Kara has decided to use her real name.
The Adventures of Ninja and Bunny first came about because of a fabulous conversation overheard between Kara’s two children during a very long car ride. The two young girls spent over two hours debating various aspects of Fae politics and social structure. Without realizing it, the girls were building a world so real, Ray Bradbury would be proud.
Kara lives in Baltimore with her husband, two children, and two terrible dogs. She is a full-time author and mother.

NINJA AND BUNNY’S GREAT ADVENTURE
Children’s Picture Book
(Ideal for the earliest readers, kids aged 3-8.)
Marian loves playing make-believe, but what if her big sister Ruthie’s fairies have been real all along? What if Princess Isla is truly in trouble and needs their help? Marian and Ruthie must visit Fairyland and transform into Ninja and Bunny! Will they be able to save the princess?
Robert V. Frazier gives it 5 STARS: “This adorable romp through Fairyland with two sisters makes a great read-aloud book or bedtime story for very young children as well as an engaging story for beginning readers to start with. The vocabulary is simple enough for new readers, but Kara Tyler does not sacrifice the story for this simplicity. Each page is lavishly illustrated in full color by Sarah Pacetti. Her thorough mastery of anatomy shows, even when drawing an anthropomorphic bunny with butterfly wings or an ogre. The plot device of magically traveling to a fairy kingdom has been done many times before, but I especially like how the costumes the two sisters don at home are taken up into Fairyland and made real. It’s also a nice touch that they choose to go to Fairyland; they don’t just get taken there randomly. And don’t worry about Ninja’s swords; she does not kill or even cut any people or animals with them in the story. But she could, if the need arose! If you love the Oz books, Elfquest, and Narnia, but know some children who are not quite ready for those stories yet, you’ll welcome Ninja and Bunny. I wish I had been able to read it when I was first learning to read. Ideal for readers of Dr Seuss. Highly recommended!”
