Overview

Griffin the dragon, Jackson the hyena and their friend 10 year old boy Cattails learn that lying to parents and going into strange houses can get you into an ‘out of this world' set of troubles, literally.

George Bernard Shaw said: "You see things and you say, ‘Why?' But I dream things that never were, and I say, 'Why Not?'" Truer words could not describe the journey this young lad, Joshua L. Mask takes us on. You share his joy of imagination in the most simple and immediate way. Dream and wonder in this most singular act of fantasy!
-Wendell Pierce

As we continue to grow, we continue to learn, especially from our young, innocent and passionate writers. Young author Joshua L. Mask demonstrates a need for both young and ones of a certain age to think outside the box and put their imaginations into action. He is both motivating and inspiring!

Meet the Author

About the authors and illustrator:

Our five year old son Joshua is nicknamed a ‘Katrina baby.' This name is common among people in the region who had children around the period of the storm. He was born December 21, 2005, four months after we were forced to leave New Orleans. Fast forward to several subsequent moves which eventually landed us in Lafayette, Louisiana. Travels around the nation including North Carolina, New York and California have sparked his wonderful imagination. We recently attended a country fair where Josh won a stuffed animal dragon by tossing an impossibly small ring over the neck of a Coke bottle. This victory prompted him to make up the story of Griffin the Dragon and the Jump House. He is in kindergarten at AES gators.
