Our grandson read a lot of his books. He enjoyed them!! We were even able to get his picture taken with the author. Nice to see books that encourage reading.

Visiting Chillermania was more than I expected! Wonderful treat to meet the author and his wife. My son is big fan so he was thrilled to get picture with Jonathan Rand. Very nice people.
