More About the Author

This is hard. I'm a pretty regular Jersey guy who spent fifteen years trying to write newspaper articles, magazine articles, screenplays, books for adults, and just about everything else before I discovered the one thing I'm good at--writing fiction for kids. I aim for kids who DON'T like to read, and hopefully the kids who DO like to read will enjoy my stuff too. For all the gory details about me, check out my web site.

I have a 6-yr old who read "Miss Mary is Scary" in one week. She picked it out from a Scholastic book flyer and could not put the book down. From the introduction on the very 1st page, the author's silly writing really got her laughing and grabbed her attention. My daughter knows that the silly content of these books is just all in fun; The storyline can be RIDICULOUS at times and what is depicted in the story is purely imaginary. Some of it may be deemed inappropriate content since it can be off the wall, but overall the books are captivating for little kids and an easy read. It is an early-read chapter book, and the chapters are short. A great way to improve their reading and at a great price available only on Amazon. (I also checked Borders and B&N but they were selling the set at the full-listed price of $84.) If you are not sure about the content, take a sneak peek inside the books. Amazon offers this feature on some books where you can read a couple pages for a preview of the storyline and author's writing style.

I am a second grade teacher and my son is currently in second grade. I have been trying to get my son to read independently. He finally has found some books that are fun and easy to read. He has asked for the whole set for his birthday because they are holding his interest. They are funny and if you have a child that does not enjoy reading these books may help. I just want my son and students to like reading. I want them to pick up a book because they want to not because it is homework. These are great books! When my son brings these books to school, the other children want to read the books with my son. They are entertaining. I finally see my son reading on his own without me telling him to read!

My 7 year old son (Grade 2) told me about this series of books. His teacher had been reading them to the class and he would always come home excited when one concluded and the next began. I decided to check them out at the library just to see what they were about and was actually a bit surprised that the teacher would be reading them to the class. I would place them in a grey area between appropriate and inappropriate. The main character is far from a role model- the books start out with "My name is A. J. and I hate school." and then he continues to talk about how he hates an annoying girl named Andrea.

I believe the appeal of these books in the eyes of the young reader is the utter shock value of the content. They are not a typical children's book and that in part with the fact that they are written from the perspective of a 2nd grader is what gets their attention and keeps it. To a kid they are the real thing. The author is quite clever. The name of the school is Ell Mentry School for example, the titles are brilliant and truthfully the books are quite hilarious (even for an adult), if you are open minded and can get beyond the words or content that would normally be taboo in a children's book!

It was a difficult decision to make whether or not to peruse these books for my son. When he borrowed one from the library and started reading it out loud to us- I had to stop him from reading the correct words in front of his 4 year old brother, who after listening, decided that he hated school too (eek- and he's only preschool- lol- thankfully it was a short phase) We replaced "hate" with "like" (and believe me the word is used a lot!) After a day or two we just stopped letting him read them aloud period as much of the content was inappropriate for a preschooler anyway.

As a library worker, I must say these books never sit on the shelf long. The are a fun read for children, light-hearted and more than a bit silly. If you have a reluctant reader, especially a boy, they will gladly read the first one and have your requesting more by this author.

My 8 year old son was a reluctant reader, told me a few months ago he didn't like reading. Now he reads one of these My Weird School books in a day. What a dramatic and welcome transformation! My husband has video of him walking off the school bus, up the driveway and taking off his coat, all with his nose buried in Miss Daisy is Crazy. He was eagerly awaiting the book fair so he could buy the books for himself and I plan on using Amazon to round out his collection. If I could give this fun and engaging series a million stars, I would.

The books were very well received by my almost-nine-year-old reader who had been introduced to the author at school. I was pleasantly surprised when he chose to read one after another and now is waiting for more! He likes them, he remembers the stories, the characters and even some of the dialog. It they motivate him to read, it's a five star win.

One of my granddaughters wanted me to get her a few of these books. But when I checked the price I found out it was less expensive to get the box set than a few books at a time. She loves these books. I think it's wonderful to see her interested in books rather than TV or video games.
