I enjoyed reading these wacky tales for kids. They're probably more suitable for children aged ten or older, but that's just my opinion. Some advanced readers under that age would probably enjoy them too. I particularly liked: Now You See it, Now You Don't.

The characters were hilarious, especially the boy who's face is covered in chocolate.

An author who has had many stories published in the women's weekly magazines and literary journals, John was drawn to writing at an early age. At one time in his teenage years he was reading one book a day---the subject didn't matter, but it needed to grab his interest in the first couple of pages, or he would abandon it. And this is the rule he has since applied to all his writing, believing that ...more
