The Marshmallow Man!


Run, run, run, as fast as you can.
You can't catch me, I'm the Marshmallow Man!

I'm happy to announce that my third picture book, The Marshmallow Man is now available! What a pleasant surprise to come home to after being on vacation. The Marshmallow Man is a retelling of the classic story, The Gingerbread Man, but with all new characters and a new, twisted ending. I came up with the idea after doing a week-long study of The Gingerbread Man with my boys in school. We had read several different versions of the story and did all sorts of projects relating to it. With my boy's help, The Marshmallow Man was born! You can get the book at ...


You can also order the book from any bookstore with the ISBN numbers. Just look on my website for those. I hope to have a link to some activities on my site shortly. I still haven't seen the book in person yet, but I hope to soon. I can't wait to see it. Stephen Macquignon did an incredible job illustrating the story. The last page just cracks me up! If you would like to watch the book trailer, you can see it here ...
