Author Biography

Ron is husband to Jen, and father to three silly boys and one sweet little girl. Ron is the award-winning author of "The Scariest Story You’ve Ever Heard," "This Book Is Perfect!," and "This Book Is On Fire!" All of his books are illustrated by the very talented and whimsical artist, Arthur Lin, from San Francisco.

“Life with kids is an amazing adventure—one I would not trade for the world. One of my favorite times of the day is when my kids snuggle up on my lap to read a few books before bed. I absolutely love how picture books capture their imagination, make them laugh out loud, and bond us closer together. To be able to provide those moments for other families with my own books has become one of my greatest joys in life.”

Ron was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago but his family currently lives in Northwest Ontario where they serve as missionaries.

This Book is Perfect! A Funny Interactive Read Aloud Picture Book For Kids Ages 3-7 by Ron Keres is a hilarious children's storybook featuring Finn the frog, who is a tad bit neurotic about cleanliness. Unlike other swamp toads, Finn prides himself on the appearance of himself and his belongings. He is obsessed with being tidy. In wanting to boast about the tidiness of his prized possession, he shares his book with a child. Huge mistake. Sloppiness defines this child. Page after page, a new disaster unfolds for Finn the frog to fret over and struggle to clean. When nearly all hope is lost, Finn reflects on what other frogs would do in this situation and resolves his issue with a happy ending.

This Book is Perfect! is indeed the perfect storybook for preschool to young school-age children. My granddaughters age 3 and 7 fell in love with Finn the frog and his obsessive-compulsive behavior. They laughed and laughed as Finn’s stress level rose, and he struggled to keep up with the disastrous dilemma he faced. Ron Keres’ tone of writing ebbs and flows perfectly in time with the chaotic scenes unfolding on the pages. Finn’s frantic behavior will keep even the most distracted child entertained throughout the story until the last page. The illustrations are creative and laid out with bright colors and realistic patterns. The images are so vivid that the messiness seems to come off the pages in an almost 3D effect. Fun to read, this storybook will become a cherished addition to any family, daycare, or teacher's library.

This book is perfect
