Rolling In the Aisles, Dinner With Dracula, I've Been Burping In the Classroom,
My Teacher's In Detention, and I Hope I Don't Strike Out. He has also written

number of educational publishers in the United States and Canada. In addition,
he has taught cartooning workshops to tens of thousands of students in the
