Dear Librarians,

In an effort to make your stay here on planet earth even more exciting I have written you a book. It's called THE DEADLY SEVEN because the hero of the story — eleven-year-old Nelson Green — finds himself in the extraordinary situation of having seven monsters extracted from his little soul. Now is not the time to tell you exactly how these loud-mouthed and colorful creatures come into being, or about the hideous beast that holds Nelson's sister captive in a faraway jungle, and I'm certainly not going to tell you about the herd of hypnotized cows who listen to ABBA as they charge through a raging river, because the whole point of a book is to discover these things for yourself. Right? Of course you knew that. You're a smart cookie. And that's why I'm sure you will enjoy reading THE DEADLY SEVEN.

"Delightful and inventive, this original story entertains at every turn ... Hilarious, madcap action combined with rich language will keep readers rapidly turning pages. Pen-and-ink sketches supplement this highly imaginative book that is part mystery, part adventure, and total fun." —School Library Journal
