West Hartford, CT (PRWEB) October 26, 2007

Chasem2 Productions LLC announces the availability of an exciting new book, The Fossibles--Bursting from Extinction to Distinction, the first in a middle grade novel series targeted at kids ages 7-12. Co-authored by a mother and daughter team, Claudia Gauches and Heather Rancourt, the book is available at: Barnes and Noble stores; online at Amazon, Borders, Booksamillion, Target, WalMart; online at www. thefossibles. com]; and at other retail outlets. Storytelling at its best, this book introduces young readers to a new team of dinosaur super-heroes, the Fossibles, with whom kids, parents, and teachers have all fallen in love. And, what's not to love about characters that express their positive outlook on life through their mantra, anything's fossible.

The Fossibles were developed as positive role models for kids by Rancourt, their creator, who says, "The Fossibles are cool and exemplify good values for today's kids, including: eating healthy; exercising; no bullying; getting a solid education; celebrating personal uniqueness and much, much more. Plus, they're funny. After all, it's not easy to be super-sized in a world made for humans."

The official Fossibles website, www. thefossibles. com], contains a 3-minute CGI trailer that shows the Fossibles in action. In early, 2008, the Fossibles will also appear on a new website being launched by Porchlight Entertainment of Los Angeles, CA, the company behind such animation hits as Jay Jay the Jet Plane, FARMkids, and others. In addition to website exposure, Chasem2 offers live Fossibles' shows for schools, libraries, and private events with Rancourt playing Piper La Rue, an eccentric storyteller and secret friend of the Fossibles.

In response to strong demand from fans, the second book in the Fossibles series, "Bolt From the Blue Mission," will be released in March, 2008. According to Claudia Gauches, "Heather and I each have real life parenting experiences that form the backdrop to much of the story. We want kids to believe in themselves and to know that, in life, anything's fossible!" Based on the exceptionally favorable market reaction to Rancourt and Gauches' book, readers young and old are getting the message.
