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.

Mr. D, what is your favorite book you have written? How long did it take you to write the monsters ring? Do you ever wish you could have added some little detail that was important in your book? Have you ever tried writing nonfiction?
due to your advice, i did research the ranks of the navy as you advised. i confirmed with some of the research that Grand Admiral was the same as Fleet Admiral. but the rank was used in Germany, instead of the United States. despite the differences, i'm going to use both ranks and have Grand Admiral be highest rank in the Welterr Navy.
i did remember something that i wanted to ask. i listened to the audio-book of Into the Land of the Unicorns, and i heard one character mention something about the Delver King being "smarter than he is wise, may the rocks not crush my feet." i think that was said by Nebzik. (sorry if i spelled the name wrong.)
do you believe that there is a difference between being smart, and being wise? if so, what do you think is the difference?
thanks for all your advice so far! Byron Lee
what wee you a student of?how old were you?
My name's Samantha Young, and I'm seventeen years old. I read in your biography that you started working seriously to become a writer when you were my age, and I've just started to become serious about it myself. As a kid, I LOVED your books. Two of the first books my mum read to me, before I could read myself, were 'The Dragonslayers' and 'The World's Worst Fairy Godmother.' I even remember a time as a kid when I thought my teacher was an alien! I really believe your books were a large part of keeping my imagination alive; I was bullied a lot when I was younger, and if I hadn't read so much, I probably would have lost my love of fantasy and the bizarre. Reading your books was a prominent part of my childhood that I still remember today, and they were some of my best friends growing up. So...thank you, seriously. Hopefully you'll be hearing from me in the future! 🙂
Were you a teacher when you married Katherine?

Quick question, how should i approach Willie? She is not mean and I dont want to look too stubborn...any ideas? Loooking forward to seeing you,
I wanted to thank you for your unicorn chronicles series though I've only read the first two. I found the second one and read it then looked for the first to read and only found your site and the other two. My question I would love answered is the cover art for my copies are different then the current cover art, why did it change? I would like to say I do love the old cover art. =)
