TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, July 30, 2015 / -- Fostering imagination became this year’s Kids Write 4 Kids Creative Challenge theme, with winning authors sharing vibrant adventures in Mika’s Fortune and Escape from the Taco Shop The challenge, in its third year, was open to students in grades 4 – 8 across Canada who by entering had a chance to have their original stories published. Proceeds from sales of this year’s books, sold on Amazon Kindle, Apple iBookstore and Kobo Bookstore will be donated back to the schools of the selected authors. Additionally, all Kids Write 4 Kids books are available in print format through Amazon for those who would like a physical copy of these amazing adventure stories.

In Mika’s Fortune, Emiry shares the story of Mika, a young girl who after eating some magic cookies, experiences a series of adventures from fortunes the cookies share. This creative adventure shares the power of wishing.

Born and raised in Northern Ontario, Faith Emiry’s vivid stories have entertained her younger sister and cousin for several years. A grade 8 student at St. Mary Catholic School in Massey, Ontario, her stories are often lively twists on everyday life. When not writing stories, she can be found taking photos, playing dodgeball, public speaking, or planning her next travel adventure.

In Escape from the Taco Shop, Smolej creates a world where the tacos inside Tony’s taco shop plot to avoid being eaten. This hilarious adventure makes you think twice about your next meal.

Christopher Smolej and his three siblings can often be found with noses in books, reading of adventures far away from their home in Toronto. A grade 7 student at St. Anselm Catholic School, Smolej loves to cartoon, video game, learn Slovenian, and play sports. His favorite stories include an element of humour – Escape from the Taco Shop was written as a classroom assignment with humour in mind.
