New York, NY, March 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Peter Begley’s The Finger Prince, published by Outskirts Press, is a delightfully illustrated, full color children’s book taking off from the idea that each little finger print has its own unique identity and the more adorably messy these prints are, the more they will flourish. In Fingerprint Land every finger print is free to be as “yucky gucky” as it can be. Cotton Candy Cowboy and Pizza Pirate have found their own identities, but Petey Peanut Butter is still searching for his own unique imprint. Feeling lost and unloved, he is suddenly thrown into a fight against the dreaded Monster Sponge. Vanquishing this hideous threat to every fingerprint, he saves Fingerprint Land and becomes the Finger Prince. In so doing, he also finds his own identity.
Composed for children five to eight, The Finger Prince has a rhythmic, rhyming text certain to please the ear of any youngster, and the delightful, full color illustrations have a Klee-like playfulness that will please both children and their parents.
Peter Begley has been an award winning art director in the world of print and television advertising for more than twenty years, and the aesthetic skills he has acquired in that career shine through in The Finger Prince.

About the author:
Peter Begley is such a die hard New Yorker, he still does not know how to drive. When not involved in his career in advertising, he has worked on screenplays, television treatments and comic strip ideas, one of which he transformed into The Finger Prince. He has no children, just a 48 year old parrot named Giba, but he speculates that now that The Finger Prince has been born, he may have become a daddy.
