The Kids Book Review (KBR) is an Australian site devoted to fun, quality literature for young people. Run by a dedicated and far too busy group of women, it monitors and recommends the best in books for kids. It offers excellent credibility to aspiring authors, so I tried to bolster my reputation a bit by writing several stories for them a few years back. “The Dark Monster” was the first of these. I liked its two characters – a grandfather and his grandson – and, more importantly, they liked each other. More stories naturally sprang from their friendship. The latest was just published in the Assisi journal, a publication associated with St Francis College in Brooklyn.. “Uriah” has an additional character, but the story’s inspiration derived gramps and the kid. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I still do.
P.S. I’ve included a link to a poem of mine that’s also in Assisi.
