Oregon author Jim Gullo's tenth book, THE COMEDY KEEPER, is a historical comedy for serious class clowns! In this book intended for a 10-15 year old reader (and their parents), 7th-grader Josh Markowitz gets sent back in time to convince some very funny brothers named Marx that their futures lie in being comedians. Groucho, Chico and Harpo need some help from the future to begin their famous careers, and The Comedy Keeper is just the kid to help.

Gullo has been writing funny, engaging stories for over thirty years, with a career that has included travel writing, novels, journalism and the memoir about teaching baseball to his son, TRADING MANNY: HOW A FATHER AND SON LEARNED TO LOVE BASEBALL AGAIN.

Previous books include FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH,”

The flowers and trees are blooming, the grass in the yard is lush and green, the temps are hitting the high-60s, and we’re having a glorious spring here in Oregon. It’s so beautiful that we’re inspired to bake chocolate cakes with toasted coconut. Come and visit us soon at the Pastry Ranch.
