Cool, daddy. Top shelf collection of dad/kid stories. My only reservation is that Myles ans Ben Tanzer named their geek "Frederick". Outrageous! I think I will perform an experiment on them and make them have green, mad scientist hair and warts. And I will become muscular and cool before going to a geeky school for geeks.

The title says it all. Stories about kids by dad writers. Solid throughout, and particularly good are the stories by J.A. Tyler (written with his son), Tom Williams, C.L. Bledsoe, Joe Peterson, Jason Fisk and Robert Duffer. Plus there's a story by this Anderson dude which is halfway decent.
Ben Tanzer, AM, is an Emmy-award winning coach, creative strategist, podcaster, writer, teacher and social worker who has been helping nonprofits, publishers, authors, small businesses and career changers tell their stories for 20 years. He is also a lover of all things Gin, taco and street art.
