Nothing Stops Noah


Nothing Stops Noah
That is is the latest book by the talented team of author Shari Lyle-Soffe and illustrator Kevin Collier. Nothing Stops Noah is a charming book about never giving up. We join Noah in his adventure on a quest to earn money to buy his mom a gift. This book is tons of fun that will keep youngsters laughing till the end.


Where can you find this fabulous book?

It's on sale now at:
Blazing Trailers


Shari shared some more information with us in an interview I did with her. Check it out:

Tell us more about your book.

My book is Nothing Stops Noah. Noah goes to work in his grandfather’s pet store to earn money to buy a gift for his mother. When Grandpa leaves him in charge Noah accidentally lets all of the animals escape. He must find a way to get them back in their cages before Grandpa returns.

Where did you get your idea for the story? Did something inspire you?


My mother used to lecture me with “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” It just seemed to fit a pet shop full of escaped animals.


What is the best trait about your main character? What is the worst?

His best trait is his determination, and his love for his mother. His worst trait is….not being totally honest about his ability to count.

Describe the world through your character’s eyes. What do you see, hear, feel and think?


Noah doesn’t see problems, he sees challenges. He believes in himself. He thinks he can do anything if he just keeps trying.


Do you have any upcoming books or projects you are working on?


I have two books coming out this year. A Horse Of Course is about a boy who gets a horse for his birthday and is certain he knows how to care for it. Shoo Cat! about a boy who wants a dog more than anything. Eventually he realizes he has some mistaken ideas about what would be a good pet.


I’ve started offering tips on my blog to other authors. What is one can’t-live-without-tip you have for beginning authors.


Read every book in your preferred genre that you can get your hands on.

I'm very excited about them. I look forward to seeing the illustrations. That is always a thrill. I have seen the covers for both books. Eugene Ruble and Jack Foster do terrific work.
