The Flash Series is a series of children’s picture books featuring the endearing relationship between a Jack Russell, Flash, and his girl Squirt. The series was created by Kari Martindale and is inspired by her daughter and their late JRT Flash. The stories are illustrated by Aaron Parrott.

The first story to be released isĀ The Time Flash Had the Best Day Ever. A great introduction to empathy and social cues, this story follows Flash on his awesome day. But will Flash–or readers–notice that it’s not Squirt’s best day ever?
