Why 6th grader Nathan gets a big thank you from me today

I don't like to toot my own horn, because... Well, it's sort of tacky. And if you read this blog, you know I wrote a book. Nuf said.

But the best part about writing for kids is when I get a good review--from a kid.

Like sixth grader Nathan, who gave Double Vision five stars, and said, "What I really like about this book is that it is humorous. For example, in the prologue, it talks about how the story isn't about Percy Jackson or Spiderman in a really funny way."

Nathan, you made my day. So here's a big thank you.


  1. Awesome! Love that you shouted out a thanks to Nathan and what a great review to get right from your target audience. :) Yeah!

  2. I don't often get a review straight from kids, so yes, this was very nice :-) Good to hear that the book hit the mark.

  3. There is not enough humor in the world for young boys, is there? I can see this already with my grandson who is only attracted to books that make him laugh. Congratulations for making boys laugh.

  4. Thank you, Patti :-) Writing humor is fun, especially for kids.

  5. That boy knows his books! Kids are more perceptive than we adults give them credit for.

  6. So true, Prashant. It's why I love to write for kids.
