We are an upstart Children’s Book Publisher who strives to deliver literature for kids that draws upon attractive illustrations, engaging storylines, and meaningful life lessons. We want reading to be fun for kids and families alike. This approach hinges both on the timeless significance of family bonds and the disheartening understanding that literacy too often prevails when children do not become engaged readers. With a sprinkle of humor, fast-paced prose, and thoughtfully developed characters, our books emerge as dear members of many families.
Who could turn their back on a ten-year-old girl who befriends a deer, who leads her to the moon as in The Rhyming Tales of Mimi the Moon Princess? Who
wouldn’t warm to The Tales of Meadowbrook Hollow and its quirky groundhog who prides himself on being a Season Forecaster?
Who wouldn’t be enchanted with an old rabbit who devises a plan that brings a new and heartfelt meaning to Easter as occurs in Grandfather Rabbit’s Scheme? Timeless Tales Press’s books are fun, relay meaningful life lessons, and promote literacy. We welcome all on our journey.

E.W. Rhodes grew up in a small Northeastern town that is nestled between two mountain ranges. This setting provided him with a natural playground comprised of lakes, woodlands, rolling meadows, and anabundance of wildlife.
Besides nature's influence, Rhodes also enjoyed travels that led throughout the U.S. and Europe, leading him to understand that all animal life (including humans) share similarities that are often ignored, yet equally allows for uniqueness.
He brings this notion into his artistically illustrated children's books. Rhodes still lives in the Northeast, where he enjoys the wonders of nature and interactions with humankind that often find their way in some form within his children's books.
