In the ’50s and ’60s, kids entertained themselves with board games, cards, and playing outside. “The Mighty Spartan!” takes readers back in time to an era where technology wasn’t needed by children to fill their time.

The family-friendly read is set in a small town in Southern Illinois. It tells the adventures of a young Pete Russey as the boy grows from childhood and into a man. Personal experiences serve as DeRousse’s inspiration.

Despite its fictional nature, readers can find themselves relating to some of its adventures. Shanta Bruner, an Amazon customer, appreciated the book for bringing him back to his childhood memories. “Pete reminded me of the young, sometimes mischievous, boy I used to be. Perhaps partly that is what made me buy this book,” he says.

DeRousse hopes his book will provide a pleasant escape for readers. “Readers don’t have to strain the brain. No thinking about ‘who done it, why, or how?’ It’s meant to be a fun read,” he says.

“The Mighty Spartan!” provides a healthy dose of humor and escapism. It is available at selected online bookstores. Check www.commonmanadventures.com for more information about the author and book signing dates.
