Dedicated to Boston

We will run again...

No one can tell us we can't believe in ourselves
No one can tell us we can't follow our dreams
No one can tell us our race is over
No one can tell us we can't get up.

I believe in us and we will run again.

Message of Hope and Change



Change and hope are great things. However, how often do people act on them? If you know that your path in life has been redundant in your own eco-system and you can't figure out how you got there or you're not satisfied, that's a good indicator that you need to change the components in your life. You shouldn't be afraid of failing . Failing is learning. You can't improve yourself unless you go through a trial period. Whether its launching a business or a product, you've got to give it a shot. If you fear too much, you can't start something new and as a result, you will never know new experiences and possibilities. Awareness of change is critical since people don't realize how badly change needs to take place. Even with children, they are naturally changing. But sometimes, they are not fully aware of why things change even for the positive.

Be like Webster! Don't Give up hope.


This is my new book, Webster Seeks a job from Santa The job market might be slow at the moment but never give up hope. Sometimes, the people around you discourage you with their opinions. My message is never give up no matter what you do and keep an open mind.

Is Santa Coming to Visit? Free today only on kindle!


What Inspired Me
I grew up in a the city overseas (Hong Kong). When I was young I couldn't figure out Santa in department stores, Santa on T.V.,Santa at church, or even Santa in books? Who was this huge red and white fellow? I never figured it out until I was a teen. I asked my brother questions and he always had an answer even if he was completely wrong. I looked at the night sky on Christmas Eve to see if I could spot Santa with Rudolph. On top of it, I lived in a high rise so we didn't have fireplaces and chimneys...I didn't have that exposure or hadn't seen snow until I went to college in Massachusetts. My brother came up with a brilliant idea of taping our socks on the windows. Somehow, we always had presents under the Christmas tree even though it was a fake plastic one.

When I was in elementary school, my teacher said it was time to write Santa a letter. Each year, I wrote requesting a puppet...I never got what I wanted and I always received a toy tea set. I just figured that Santa was getting old or ran out of puppets.

Giving Thanks for Gobbles Reviews

My Reviews are in and I'm giving thanks to my wonderful crtics.




5.0 out of 5 stars Books That Sow: Strength, Character & Diversity, DBA, November 7, 2012
By Books That Sow: Strength, Character & Diversi... (Houston, TX) - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Gobbles and His Turkey Trick (Paperback)
Beatrix S. Taubunan is an excellent children's author and illustrator.

I just love the simplicity of her writing on paper, yet the plot is so intense, meaningful and carries such a strong message for children.

The illustrations are outstanding, colorful and mesh very well with the plot. I can just see myself right there in Gobble's world, so the children will too.

Children will love this story and feel Gobble's heart as he deliberately finds a way to remain alive and well. This time, the humans were outsmarted.

What a beautiful story for this time of year - Thanksgiving.

"Gobbles and His Turkey Trick" is definitely a page turner, and will keep small children entertained. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

Beatrix Tambunan has done it again! This time she introduces us to Gobbles. When he learns he might end up on a plate Gobbles gets very creative. As Always, this book is beautifully illustrated to better tell the story. If you love animals like I do or your children are big animal lovers this is definitely a book worth getting. It is sure to be a bedtime favourite! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars What fun!, November 5, 2012
By LEONARDOVERSE "Leonardo Ramirez" (Nashville, TN) - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Gobbles and His Turkey Trick (Kindle Edition)
I am becoming a bigger fan of Beatrix Tambunan's work with every book and this one is even more fun than the last. Just when you think you're in for a sweet, simple story the author hits you with a funny line soon after Gobbles is born that had me rolling. Gobbles is very clever and throws the reader for a tofu loop that brought a smile to my face. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews
