    School teacher wife received her copy some months back and read it to her kindergarten class and from all accounts it was very well received by the critical audience. Good work.

    We greatly enjoyed it and ... believe it or not, I might have a connection with the illustrator, I'm checking with who I know that might know him to see if it's so.

    Love the googly eyes & smiley face ol' Max has. Well done all around.

    Perhaps this children's book would make a nice Christmas gift for the little motorcyclist in your life. Or maybe a yankee swap gift. :evil

    Placed my order today for a hardcover book....looking forward to reading this to my nephews, especially since I have a R90/6 project waiting patiently for me down in Austin, TX. :D

    Here's a great children's book that would make a nice gift. It's a warm story of a motorcycle restoration. My wife did a great job and so did the illustrator.

    People can order the book from Lulu or Amazon. Or my wife can sign a copy and mail it. Could make a nice personal touch for a young reader. :~)
