Cover ArtMog the forgetful cat
by Kerr, Judith.
This is my favorite children’s book when I was 5. I wish I had a cat like Mog.   posted Oct 8, 2011 at 6:14PM

Cover ArtJohn dies at the end
by Wong, David
Sort of a mash up of Supernatural and Harold and Kuhmar goes to White Castle. Reads like an action horror movie until the end where it sort of drifts into epic science fiction.   posted Nov 17, 2010 at 12:59AM
