Praise for Sully P. Snooferpoot's Amazing New Shadow:
- "My wife runs a daycare/preschool and has read this to the kids and they all were very interested and then ran around acting like they had fun shadows. I also loved the bedtime question routine." ~ Russell Swain
- "I love, love this book! The illustrations are marvelous and so appealing to children, but also to me as a mom! I've raised four kids and spent years volunteering in my kids' classrooms reading books to the class on a weekly basis. I wish I'd had this book back then—it would have been on my permanent rotation! When I become a grandma, I want to help my grandkids build an excellent library and this is one of the books I will include, for sure!" ~ Mary Gardner
- "My 5-year-old twins loved it! They laughed at almost every page. The illustrations are great and had them giggling throughout the story. The characters are humorous and endearing. The story is easy to read and understand, but still kept them engaged until the end. The message is sweet and lighthearted. As level-1 readers, it's also the perfect book for them to try to read on their own!" ~ Desiree Wojda
- "I adore the message of self-esteem and acceptance that could bring for little kids for being unique as they are. It has cute and funny illustrations, easy to read and follow." ~ Guillermo Daniel Garcia
- "This is such a fun, sweet and entertaining book. It is the perfect bedtime story because the illustrations are lively and beautiful, the writing is relatable to children and it only takes a few minutes to read. Bonus: A good moral!" ~ Tisha

About the Author
I have a Ph.D. in marriage and family therapy. This helps when you have a crazy big family like mine. You see, I have 6 kids that all have superpowers and don’t believe in bedtime. The stories I write and illustrate usually come from me making deals to tell stories as long as their heads are on the pillow.
I wrote my very first literary masterpiece when I was just 6 years old. Although I don’t remember the title, I know the main character was a tapeworm with a bazooka living in someone’s stomach.
People say you have to read a lot of books to be a good writer. I’m a terrible reader. I’m slow, have poor comprehension, and generally only make it through half of any book with more than a hundred pages. Lucky for me, having so many kids legally requires me to read (and finish) several million picture books per evening.
Here is how I define picture books when done right: they’re touching and funny pieces of art that can be completely consumed and adored in less than 5 minutes. To me, picture books are like amazing little animated movies with only enough room for the good parts within their pages.
I try to make all of my books have just the good parts. Otherwise my kids would have me drawn and quartered.
