Prince Garrett lives in Garrett Land and loves playing with his dog Zeus (nicknamed Zuzu). The Prince Garrett stories began when the author, Jannie Pilgrim, would take Garrett for walks and tell him adventures about Garrett and Zeus. Garrett loved these stories so much that he wanted to hear them often and before bedtime. Jannie wanted to capture these stories and decided to write them into books – and thus, Prince Garrett was born.

As children get ready for their first day of school, some may get the jitters. “No Matter What!”, allows parents to begin empowering their children with words of encouragement, inspiration, and support.
It is especially critical that children begin to understand their worth, as bullying is on the rise. The topic of bullying can be challenging to say the least. What we hope to foster, is a safe environment for children that provides a feeling of empowerment. This can provide the will to help children speak out against bullying in their community, and it’s just in time for back to school.
Jannie herself faced bullying as a child, and felt that she could not speak out against it. She said, “I felt like I didn’t have a voice.” The subject of bullying still hits close to home Pilgrim says, sharing that bullying has also affected her nephew, causing him deep depression at times. She wants to be part of the solution. In addition to writing, “No Matter What!” and “The Beautiful Book of Possibilities”, she has authored four other books within the series, and began working with schools to create and deliver anti-bullying programs. The programs are entitled BE A HERO!
Jannie Pilgrim, the author of “No Matter What!” and the Prince Garrett series of books, has a vision to create a world where children’s thoughts center on possibility! When a child is faced with adversity like bullying, she or he will inherently know that they have the power to affect change. Prince Garrett inspires the ability to tap into that potential, along with hope, vision, and a sense of worth.
