Iggie’s Telescope, a new children’s book written and illustrated by Kristopher T. Hubbard, O.D., follows the adventures of Iggie the Eyeball as he works diligently to buy his first telescope.  

“This story will inspire and show children that hard work pays off, while educating them on the importance of protecting their eyes,” Dr. Hubbard said.

The 8.5” x 11” full-color children’s paperback is designed to be a good bedtime story for parents to read to their children as well an appropriate addition to a medical or optometric waiting room, Dr. Hubbard said.

He is a 2009 graduate of the Southern College of Optometry and completed an externship at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) in Memphis, Tenn.

Iggie’s Telescope can be purchased on the Author House Web site (www.authorhouse.com) by entering order number ISBN # 978-1-4634-2160-1.
