Book Description

Do you remember being a child, the imagination you had, and the questions you asked?
“The Whyz Guy” is a read aloud book of short poems with colorful illustrations. Reading this book to your children will be equally as much fun for you as it is for them.
This book is great for kids between 1st and 4th grade.
Parents, if you love the sound of your child’s laughter and to see them smile, then “The Whyz Guy” is for you!

The “Birth of The Whyz Guy”
Following Hurricane Sandy, and being without power for 11 days, I had many hours to fill while waiting for the electricity and heat to come back on. I stumbled on a copy of “Where the Sidewalk Ends” and read it cover-to-cover.
It brought me back to being five years old, intrigued by the words and mesmerized by the drawings. I then thought of all the questions I asked my mom and dad about the poems and illustrations, as well as the many questions asked about everything at that age.
I grabbed a spiral notebook and began to write, with no plan or intention for what I would be doing with these rhymes, other than wanting to hear my wife laugh. She did, and “The Whyz Guy” was born!
The Whyz Guy is meant to be read aloud. It’s not intended for just children’s entertainment, but for the readers as well!

-Chris Cianciulli


Who is “The Whyz Guy” and why is he here?
Maybe this intro can make that all clear.
This little boy is like so many others,
Have endless questions for their fathers and mothers.
There may be times you don’t know what to say,
When outrageous questions are coming your way.
This is a collection of things that kids ask,
Providing the answers is their parent’s task.
You respond to the questions, or at least you try,
But, over and over again kids ask why?
For all of you parents who know this is true,
Let me introduce “the Whyz Guy” to you.


How did “The Whyz Guy” ever get that name?
It’s spelled incorrectly, so who should we blame?
You can take that nickname up with his dad,
Who gave it for all of the questions he had.
As far as the spelling, well that’s more complex.
When a child asks “why”, what’s your first reflex?
How do you answer and how are their needs met?
Children are curious which adults can forget.
Some questions can prove that your child is quite wise,
With others you shake your head closing your eyes.
A wise guy is smart by being well read,
A “Whyz Guy” is smart by using his head!
By asking the questions to things they don’t know,
They’ll increase their wisdom and help their brain grow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book! January 24, 2013
By Amanda
Format:Kindle Edition
This book made me laugh, and I felt excited as to what was going to come next. I liked the booger part especially because it is so true, gotta check what's going on in there! Each little "chapter" is relate-able to all kids. We all want a dog, we all don't understand why we can't curse, and we all try and try and try to learn a bike-- until your parents give up and you never learn. Maybe that's just me, but this book is adorable for both children and parents, as it portrays little life lessons/situations for families everywhere. The illustrations were funny and the rhyming made it all tie in. Five stars!!

By Scott
Format:Kindle Edition
It's rare to find a book that leaves both parents and children wanting MORE! Reading these hysterical poems reminds me of questions that I had as a kid - and I'm sure many of us had the same questions we just couldn't figure out the answers to! Reading this book to your children will be a fun, enjoyable time that will create wonderful memories of the two of you laughing together. Keep these books coming!

More About the Author

Let me start off by saying that I am not a trained writer! Reading is something I only rediscovered about two years ago. So, why did I write a book?

My mom is a middle school teacher. She was always reading a new book every week, and up until 10 years old, I was doing the same. I saw myself in the stories I read!

As I child I was encouraged to use my imagination and explore my curiosity, which is how I realized how much I loved to make people laugh.

When I was in 4th grade, my teacher had everyone in the class memorize a different poem each week. We had to stand in front of the class and recite poetry ranging from a couple of paragraphs, to four pages by the end of the school year. This taught me the structure and different styles of writing poems, as well as developed my confidence in front of an audience.

That's when I became involved in drama. From the town plays, to our school plays, a local community theater, and my favorite- hosting my high school talent show, I loved to entertain!

What recently led me to begin this journey of writing children's books is interesting! Living in NY, my wife and I were without power for 2 weeks following Hurricane Sandy. After looking through old photographs and reading the books my mom used to read to me, I decided to write my own. It was just to pass the time, and I wanted to make my wife Laura laugh.

I spent the next 4 weeks writing and editing everyday, for at least 3-4 hours a day. My goal was to have this book ready to give to my mom for Christmas. On Christmas morning I was at the 24 hour pharmacy printing the pictures to my book so that I could insert them into an album attached to each poem.

When I saw my family laughing as they read my work, I wondered if others would be amused. So, I took a chance!

I have had the pleasure of getting to know so many people through this publishing experience. It truly amazes me how some people are willing to help out a novice like me.

I hope you will read The Whyz Guy, and I hope to make you and your family laugh!
