Cheeky MaNeeky Travels Everywhere is a children’s book series. The vision and dream of Cheeky MaNeeky is to entertain and inspire children in hopes they will make this planet a better place and as Cheeky would say, “Live your life with your own style”
D’Ann Swain is the author of Cheeky MaNeeky Travels Everywhere. Cheeky MaNeeky was created by D’Ann’s daughter, Valerie. Valerie passed away from an aggressive brain tumor at the age of 30 in April 2016. Valerie was a singer, songwriter, artist, and model. She had created the Cheeky character and had the coloring book almost ready when she passed away. Valerie left a notebook of instructions and ideas for D’Ann so she could continue writing the Cheeky series. Each book must contain three themes woven into each story. A self-esteem lesson, a family values lesson, and a conservation lesson. D’Ann writes each story inspired by Valerie’s unique spirit and her childhood antics.
The illustrations are done by Joshua Finley.
