Mine showed up the other day, this is a real nice kid's book. Look forward to many nights of reading with the family. Well worth the couple of bucks spent on it.

About to order for my two, soon to be three sons. Maybe I should just buy three copies?

Looks great and I'm sure my four year old will dig it.

PM the OP and see if his wife is still doing the personal signing, she did for me and I think it's kinda cool.

Thumb Kids, loved it.

School teacher wife received her copy some months back and read it to her kindergarten class and from all accounts it was very well received by the critical audience. Good work.

We greatly enjoyed it and ... believe it or not, I might have a connection with the illustrator, I'm checking with who I know that might know him to see if it's so.

Love the googly eyes & smiley face ol' Max has. Well done all around.

Wicked Christmas gift idea

Perhaps this children's book would make a nice Christmas gift for the little motorcyclist in your life. Or maybe a yankee swap gift.

Placed my order today for a hardcover book....looking forward to reading this to my nephews, especially since I have a R90/6 project waiting patiently for me down in Austin, TX.
