About the Author

Barton Grover Howe is a high school teacher and humor columnist who has spent most of the last 10 years teaching, being a mascot and generally not being near as funny as he thinks he is. He currently resides in a small town on the Oregon coast within shouting distance of Surfland.
Prior to washing up on the beach in Oregon, Howe spend 10 years with CADA: Career Attention Deficit Disorder. Always finding something more interesting to do after a few months on the job, Howe worked as a valet, hotel manager and skiiing moose for Vail Resorts, a tour coordinator for Feld Entertainment, and even served for brief as the dinosaur mascot for the Colorado Rockies Major League Baseball team.
In the middle of all that, however, he found time to be Max the Dog in "The Little Mermaid" production of Disney On Ice. Touring the world and nation, he went to 48 states, more than a dozen nations, and even had time to get run over by a bus in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Following a lay-off brought on by being the only non-skater on an ice-skating show, Howe returned to graduate school at the University of Missouri where he got a masters degree in journalism. While there he won many writing awards, as well as being crowned the NCA National Champion mascot as Truman the Tiger.
Today, he continues to dress as furry animals, be married and be a father - sometimes simultaneously - with his family on the beach in Oregon.
He is very happy.

It's ok for a book I dowloaded for a free friday read, but not my kind of story. Not as funny as the other reviews have lead me to believe. Would not recommend it.

There's a good deal of hilarious material here but some of the descriptions require a strong stomach. I'll never quite feel the same about Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom again
