Welcome to the Guestbook!

I’m always eager to read your comments about my books and stories, so please feel free to pitch in. Here are a few things for you to know:

1) I answer the messages here personally.

2) No message shows up here until I actually answer it to prevent spam and other inappropriate postings. So there will sometimes be a delay before your message posts, especially if I am traveling.

3) Teachers, a gentle request: Please do not have multiple children send me variants of the same message. A group email is much easier to respond to and not such a drain on my time. My thanks in advance for being alert to this.

Hi Bruce! I remember as a kid reading and loving Goblins in the Castle and now I'm reading it to my two boys (5,7). They immediately fell in love with Igor and his bear, last night we read where William scared Igor, and then got bopped. Their laughter is so contagious!!

Hi, Richard -
Ah, many thanks for this. I had so much fun writing that book! When I was a teacher I used to read an early version of it to my classes in October. On Halloween sometimes Igor himself would come by to do a "guest reading."
Anyway, the book is very close to my heart so it always delights me to know when someone is having fun sharing it with his kids.
