Publication date set for kids' book, 'Grampy and His Fairyzona Playmates'
Hooray! A tentative publication date, Jan. 1, has been established for 'Grampy and His Fairyzona Playmates.'
The 50-page children's book, a true collaboration of me, Woody Weingarten, and my granddaughter, Hannah Schifrin, has been — as Hollywood publicists often shout — "five years in the making."
Surprisingly, perhaps, recent delays weren't caused by Covid-19 but by our desire to make the book the best possible available for readers between the ages of 6 and 10.
Hannah was only eight years old when she co-wrote the book, which is colorfully illustrated by Joe Marciniak.
While you're waiting, for anybody who wants to see first-hand that I can put one word after another, why not check out your local bookstore or Amazon and get a copy of "Rollercoaster: How a man can survive his partner's breast cancer," a VitalityPress volume I aimed at male caregivers (one, admittedly, that I'm considering updating).
And look, probably in mid-2021, for "The Roving I," a compilation of columns I'd written for a group of weekly newspapers over an 11-year period.
