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.

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.

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!

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 daughter was not much of a reader or a fan of reading until her 2nd grade teacher introduced her to these books. She LOVES them! She was more excited with this box set than any other gift she has ever received. She has read them all, more than once.

I wanted to get my daughter reading and it was near impossible to get her to ready anything besides picture books at EIGHT yrs old. I tried the popularity papers and that worked since it has a lot of comic like illustrations. But these books were so entertaining that despite no illustrations even my kids will read them!i highly reccommened them. My kid is on her fourth book. So this is great! Have fun reading!

My son started reading these in his 1st grade class, and he came home from school and told me all about them. So I went to our local library they didn't have any in stock nor did the others in our county. And he asked for 1 or 2 for christmas, and I noticed they had a whole set! I can't wait to see his face on Christmas when he sees these. A good buy your kids will love these books.

My son loves these books and either loves reading them himself or having them read at bedtime. They are fun, a bit silly and pitched at the right level. My 7 year old son loves them.
