TYRONE IS NO LONGER EXTINCT!!
One of my most popular book series is Tyrone the Horrible. Unfortunately this tyrannosaurus has been extinct — meaning: out of print – for some time. But every week I still receive emails about Tyrone from teachers, librarians, parents, and children. They keep asking me for more adventures or how to obtain old copies of the books.
Tyrone is not the only one who is missed by his fans. There are other beloved characters that have touched millions of young readers and are no longer in print. I have therefore decided to create this website where every child, parent, teacher, and librarian can download and read all my books that are no longer available in print. It is a totally free service. You can print these books out or use them on your SmartBoard, PowerPoint and overhead projector. Furthermore, I am adding all those books that I have specially created for my European and Japanese publishers. I plan to have them in the original language as well as in English. Once all the foreign books have been scanned and translated the site will feature over 100 books.
I believe the Internet is the best way to keep these books alive and offer them to an even larger audience than the printed version could ever do. Therefore, I am now happy to see that Tyrone the Horrible is no longer extinct! Together with soccer-crazy Bunny Trouble and many more beloved story book characters, Tyrone is reincarnated and alive again thanks to the Internet. And also thanks to all my fellow writers who have given me permission to include the books that I had the privilege to illustrate.
Please come and visit www.ChildrensBooksForever.com over and over again because new titles will be added as soon as they become available. I will keep this site free of any advertising to ensure the pure enjoyment of books. It is my personal Thank You to all the teachers, librarians, parents and children who have shared and enjoyed my books for so many years.
