Neat Freaks is dedicated to friends of the Arvai family who inspired the book (and are also in it!) when they would tell their kids the Neat Freaks were coming if they didn't clean up their toys.  This concept stuck with John for a couple of years until, with the family's permssion, he decided to write the book and have it brought to life in amazing fashion by producer, Andy Wheeler of Bear With Us Productions, and illustrator, Adam Walker-Parker -- both out of the UK.


Neat Freaks was officially released to "clean up" messy playrooms in June of 2019.
