Award Winning Writer/Teacher Aaron Braxtonís Jesse and the "Caterpillar Who Got Its Wings" Reaches New Audiences


Aaron Braxton's beautifully written, Common Core Standards and Academic Language infused young adult novel metaphorically reminds kids about life, love, transformation, and finding their own greatness inside themselves.

Los Angeles, CA, March 28, 2018 --(PR.com)-- A.K.B. Communications announces "Jesse and the Caterpillar Who Got Its Wings" soars.

Do you believe you can fly?
Jesse is an intelligent, sensitive, yet socially awkward kid, who has a vivid imagination, a hard time fitting in, and desperately needs help making friends. Facing the added pressures of 5th grade, his whole world changes when his teacher brings caterpillars to class.

Find out how Jesse uses their magical shape shifting metamorphosis––from humble earthbound creatures, to graceful winged beauties––as a lesson for life, love, tragedy and healing.

Braxton, who wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed and internationally award winning solo show, "Did You Do Your Homework?" is no stranger to social commentary about the trials and tribulations of diverse youth, growing up in poverty-stricken communities and experiencing self-doubt and transformation. “I grew up poor, in an abusive household where I saw my alcoholic father throw my mother down a flight of stairs and my manic stepfather put a lock on the refrigerator door and attempt to cave in my chest,” says Braxton. "I was told daily by my stepfather that I would never amount to anything, but I kept telling myself he was wrong.” "Jesse and the Caterpillar Who Got Its Wings" is about inspiration, finding the greatness inside and allowing it live. “I used to take profound, often painful experiences from my past and make them a basis for inspiring my students. I told them that everything worth achieving is only accomplished through hard work and perseverance. That by directing their energies positively rather than negatively, they can be far more productive. I want to continue to be an example of my convictions no matter the obstacles.”

Hailing from Boston, MA, and growing up in Santa Rosa, CA, the former Los Angeles Unified School District educator holds a BA degree in Speech Communications from San Diego State University and a MA degree in Education from the University of Southern California. He now calls Los Angeles his home.

“When there’s greatness inside you, who says you can’t fly?”

Available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon and all Major Book Outlets.
