    Like Dr. Seuss for adults, made it a quick and funny read.

    The bonus story "Cookie" was very moving.

    Brilliant and Scary! Treat yourself and check it out!!

    WOW! It starts out in this creepy old man's shack and I got chills because of the author's descriptive style of writing. I was enjoying the read and got totally sucked into the story, when all of the sudden, I got the scare of my life. This story reads as a poem and is truly lyrical, which makes it fun to recite. I'm working on memorizing it now. Someone please turn this into a film. Reading this story was so much fun!
