Holly Jahangiri

Holly Jahangiri is the author of Trockle; A Puppy, Not a Guppy; and A New Leaf for Lyle. She draws inspiration from her family, from her own childhood adventures (some of which only happened in her overactive imagination), and from readers both young and young at heart. She lives in Houston, Texas, with her husband, J.J., whose love and encouragement make writing books twice the fun.

A New Leaf for Lyle

Lyle’s heart is in the right place, but his habit of lying about everything from whether he’s brushed his teeth to why he’s missed the bus make it hard for people to believe him when he does tell the truth. He doesn’t want to be known as “Lyle the Liar.” Can Lyle ever regain the trust of family and friends?


Stephen doesn’t like to go to bed because he knows a monster is underneath. Even when told that Monster Repellent was sprayed under the bed, he knows it didn’t work. Under the bed, Trockle doesn’t want to go to sleep because he’s afraid of the huge monster above. Stephen’s parents and Trockle’s mom try to help their children no longer be afraid. 

A Puppy, Not a Guppy

Irma wanted a puppy, a pet she could take on walks, not a few stupid guppies. Fish don’t do anything, except roll over on their backs if they die. Sometimes, though, a girl has to make the most of what she has. Now, what can Irma do with three guppies besides stare at them as they stare at her?

Innocents & Demons

An eclectic collection of short stories that delve into the shadowy corners of the human mind, occasionally illuminating them with a flashlight tinted with a wicked sense of humor.
