More About the Author

TRAVELS WITH GRANDPAW
A memoir of Texas Tales

I'd like to tell you folks a bit about my new ebook. "Travels With Grandpaw" is Tuesdays With Morrie--in Boots. I'm usually known for my children's picture books. This is my venture into non-fiction writing for adults. It's my coming of age story with Texas in the last century as a backdrop. A memoir of Texas tales.

I traveled with my beloved "Grandpaw" Raymond Lacy (1905-97) across Texas in a relationship that spanned forty-nine years. He taught me about hunting, fishing, loving, kindness, courage and loss. We had many adventures and you can share them, too.

Visit South Texas as Grandpaw faces off against the smartest stub-tailed one-eyed pirate of a rat in in the Lone Star State. Travel back to a Hill Country Christmas in the 1880's as told by an old cowboy born in 1869. Corner a wild tomcat in a Cherokee County outhouse with Raymond and his brother, Alton in 1910. Celebrate an early 1900's East Texas Christmas with a buckboard full of roman candles, a new Barlow pocket knife, music,firewater, and a kind old Cherokee named Joe.

Come along with David, and watch a monumental skeet shooting contest between Grandpaw with his old square-backed Browning and an arrogant skeet shooter shooting an engraved Beretta over and under outside of San Antonio in 1960. Watch Grandpaw and David as they encounter a dancing duck thief near Indianola, Texas.

Attend a country wake in the Texas Piney Woods. Ride along with Ray's band in 1920 when they play a rural dance--and have to fend off a gang of troublemakers and a vicious pit bull. Stand beside Grandpaw as he stands up against four young hoodlums--when he was in his eighties!

This book is about growing up, growing old, and the wheel of life, but mostly it is about laughter--and Raymond Lacy, an unbribed soul.

Gorgeous illustrations and a powerful voice for adults -- Just plain fun for the kids. What an exciting way to learn about sharing and compassion. I'm a fan of David Davis, have been for several years, and he is the king of turning a phrase into a powerful, frolicking mouthful of fun. Throw in colorful, old west poster board illustrations, and no kid will go hungry,

When I brought this book home last night I figured I'd gather the family around and read it today, but my kids beat me to it! Our 9-year-old found it this morning, started reading it in her best Texas accent and the 5 and 7-year-olds hung on her every word. I can't think of any higher praise for a children's book than when children pick it up and finish it on their own. Great book!

I got it to use with kids at school. I'd already seen it so I knew it would be just right. It can be fun for people who like to cook, too (not a recipe book, but it's fun the way it evolves).

We LOVE this book. I picked out this book based on the name and the artwork which are wonderful, BUT the story is very sweet--it's about friendship, fellowship, sharing, resourcefulness, creating something extraordinary out of the ordinary and the enduring relationship of a grandfather and grandson. I enjoy creating the many character voices as well as brushing up on my cowboy accents. My son also reads along. He says, "One horse town" in surprised disbelief every time! It's pretty cute. I hope you pick up this book and may it become one of your favorites too. It's a keeper. I think my son's cowboy grandpa would be "right proud."
