I was recently surprised — pleasantly — when the Local News Matters website published a make-believe interview about Grampy and His Fairyzona Playmates that I conducted with myself and my granddaughter, the fantasy’s co-authors.
Here’s a link to my shameless promotion, especially for those who enjoy a touch of whimsy or silliness: bit.ly/3pzw0xQ.
In case you've missed my earlier blog items, our kids' book, written by two people 70 years apart in age and aimed at children 6 to 10, features a sorcerer, two fairies, spells, unicorns, and a magic carpet.

Among its highlights are an eight-year-old fairy winning her division of the Unicorn Racing Championships, baby chicks singing jazz instead of cheeping, a wizard making robot movie characters less scary, and two girls wanting to stop thunder-and-lightning storms, floods, earthquakes and tornadoes all over the planet.
More information is available at my new website — woodyweingarten.com.
Incidentally, if any of you have already bought and read the book, I’d really appreciate your reviewing it on Amazon and Goodreads.
Not incidentally, even though we’re already a couple of weeks into 2022, I wish you all the happiest new year you’ve ever experienced, one crammed with whimsy (faux and real).
