More About the Author

My name is Dallas Clayton. I write kids' books. When I was a kid I dreamt about traveling around the world meeting new people every day, having amazing experiences and sharing the stories from those experiences with other new people. That's pretty much what I do now. When I am not doing that, I am writing, drawing, having my mind blown by my nine-year-old child, or jumping into a large body of water. When I am not writing for children, I am writing for adults and the companies that adults run, drawing pictures for adults and reading things out loud to a crowd of strangers. I love strangers.

Format: Hardcover
Make Magic! Do Good! is an adorable book filled with fun poems and artwork. Each page is a new story. There are poems about a boy with a beard, caterpillars getting ready to become butterflies, and a shark with no teeth to name just a few. There are ninety five pages of poems and each one has its own unique illustration to go along with it. Each poem is its own stand alone tale, so you can read them one at a time or back to back. You could even open to one random page for a quick, funny poem. This book reminds me a lot of a poem book that was really popular back in the 80s called Where the Sidewalk Ends. If you enjoyed reading that book when you were a kid, you will have fun reading Make Magic! Do Good! with your children. All of my kids ,who range in age from one twelve, enjoyed reading the poems. This book a great selection for kids of all ages.

Format: Hardcover
This was a fun book with some amazing poetry within it. I have always been a fan of authors such as Shel Silverstein and this author does remind me of his writings. Free flowing and fun, the poems draw you in and pull on your inner child to explore and reach out to simply enjoy life and remember what it was like to be young. Inside all of these stories though there is a wisdom that the author is sharing with his readers that all readers should appreciate, I know that I did. I also enjoyed the colorful playful images that the author shares with her readers with every story that he shares. This was a book that I loved reading with my own children and you will too! I highly recommend this to all!

Very cleaver and witty book. After reading it to make sure it wasn't too young for my 8 year old nephew I thought my 3 year old nieces would like it as well so I was impressed with the wide variety of ages.

This is a classic! My daughters and I take turns reading a poem each night. Some are silly, but they all have a beautiful message.
