About the Author
Shawn Amos is a world-renowned Blues musician who grew up the son of Wally Amos, aka Famous Amos: a pop culture icon, cookie mogul, and household name to this day. When Shawn's not touring or recording as The Reverend Shawn Amos, he works as a partner at NYC communications firm Hudson Cutler. He is also a divorced father of three children, with whom he enjoys baking. This is his first novel.
"Offbeat and enchanting. The humorous narration is breezy and conversational ...there are also exquisite descriptions of musical transcendence, an uplifting community, and a gorgeous father-son relationship that evolves and deepens throughout. A sweet treat with a warm center."--Booklist
"Amos's energetic prose encourages pride in one's culture. Championing interpersonal bonds, be they found family or blood relatives, the narrative also emphasizes unconditional love and one community's impact on a boy shaping his identity."--Publishers Weekly
"Sets a fantastic scene.... Music, family dynamics, friends, and cookies are all delivered with imagery so strong that readers will taste those cookies."--School Library Journal

I love Cookies and Milk as much as I love cookies and milk."--Lisa See, New York Times bestselling and award winning author of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan and Shanghai Girls
"Full of heart and humor....A wholesome story that bridges generations."--Kirkus
