Palm Coast author Robert Ernst's book for children wins award

The book is the third in the Dr. Bob’s Tales series.

One of Palm Coast author Dr. Robert Ernst's books for children has won a silver medal at the 2022 Florida Authors and Publishers Association President’s Book Awards.

The book, "Harry Saves Wreck," is a children’s chapter book with illustrations. It is the third book in the Dr. Bob’s Tales series, and won in the category of Children Grades 3-5. The national competition, judged by librarians, educators, and publishing professionals, was open to books published between 2020 and 2021.

“This heartwarming tale is filled with many characters, all looking different from one another, yet all living in harmony through caring, being sensitive to the needs of others, and cooperating for the common good,” Ernst said. “It’s a great honor for 'Harry Saves Wreck' to be considered one of the top books in this category in the U.S. — I just love bringing smiles to children's faces.”

Ernst has written two other books: "Hurry Up Harry" and "Harry and the Hooligans," which won a gold medal from FAPA in 2021. For more information or to buy one of Ernst's books, visit
