About the Book:
Did you ever wonder what grandparents really got up to when they were younger? Have you ever seen a Mexican Barking spider?
Do you know who the first man to walk on Mars was?
Find the answers to all of these questions along with why so many N.A.S.A scientists are bald and just why American bridges are so strong, inside this wonderful new book.
Warning: may contain rockets and scenes of a spidery nature.
This is a highly imaginative ‘tall tale’ that plays with imagination and language, inserting characters and names from history as it then turns the familiar onto its ear. The illustrations are completely adorable: just enough visual interest to engage pre-readers, and enough of a break for the newer readers to not feel overwhelmed with the length.
Parents – this is a great book to read with your kids – thoroughly entertaining and cleverly crafted, everyone can enjoy this one.
I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review and inclusion in the Children Read week at I am, Indeed. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
About the Author:
Thank you kindly for stopping by to find out a little more about me.
As you may know I am the oldest and grumpiest living resident of Fort Guff, Guff County, Guffsylvania U.S.A. I suffer from a chronic case of Raccoon’s rummaging through my trash and a nosy neighbor who just happens to own the worlds dumbest dog.
I like to spend time with my grand kids Brad and Gertrude at the weekends, I get a chance to help them with their cooking experiments, read books and watch good movies, with plenty of popcorn and a sneaky soda.
Recently we have written a book, all about my trip to Mars and hope to publish another one real soon.
