W. Nikola-Lisa chronicles his life on the road as a children's book author. Although the stories in this collection reveal a wide variety of characters and settings, the central core revolves around the weird and wacky: a kiss on the hand from a first grader, a brief run-in with Benny the Bull, a case--or two--of mistaken identity. It's the curtain pulled back on a highly esteemed and delightful profession. Readers young and old will enjoy the stories in this collection.
