New Release: The Adventures of Ghost Mouse

GhostMouseTada! Ghost Mouse is in the house.

Well, technically this isn’t a brand spanking new release because I published it earlier this year. I just haven’t gotten around to telling anybody yet. I wrote this for my son. Over the last couple of years we’ve had fun making up silly stories about Ghost Mouse and I decided to pull some of them together into a more permanent form.

Deliciously self-indulgent, I know.

These tales may not appeal to a broad audience and that’s okay. The goal was to make them into a “real” book for my kid. I hope that when he grows up, this little volume provides good memories of us laughing and reading together. The vocabulary is robust – we enjoy lots of words at our house – and the stories feature all the things that strike our fancy.

Somehow I didn’t manage to weave dinosaur watching, time traveling, fossil-hunting, and a plethora of other fascinating activities into this book. I suspect a second volume might be forthcoming at some point in the future. Oh darn.
