We’ve Been Busted!

Kids are officially on alert that we are swiping their treats. In Sneaky Snacks, the first children’s book from Denver radio personality Jeremy Padgett, a child comes home to find Mom and Dad red…er…chocolate-handed. While the kid is offered healthy veggie treats instead, she knows the good stuff is hidden somewhere in the house. So, the hunt begins. “The story was inspired by my personal life, and how my wife and I always sneak our kids’ holiday candy and eat it before they do,” says Padgett, a host of Mix100’s Dom & Jeremy Morning Show. “The peanut butter cups are always the first to be stolen.” Padgett used the pandemic as a time to wrap up the project, finding University of Colorado graduate Penny Serrano to illustrate the story.
