Cecil the Littlest Ant may be small, but he's fed up with being bullied about it. The other kids at Aardvark Park tease him about his size, what they don't see is his magnificent courage. Cecil knows that the bullies are wrong about him, and to prove it he focuses on a new goal: he will become a great surfer! With the help of his Uncle Juba, Cecil learns how to master even the biggest waves. Armed with his new skills and confidence, Cecil shows everyone that if you believe in yourself, you can accomplish great things—no matter your size.

North Carolina author Adam W. Jones has written both fiction and children’s books, and has written articles for several magazines.

In Cecil and the Big Wave, Adam shares his own childhood love of surfing in a family-friendly picture book meant to remind readers young and old of the importance of courage, confidence, and self-esteem. Adam is a husband and father of two young girls. He lives in Chapel Hill with his family, their two dogs, one cat, and a fish.
