Review of An Unexpected Bit of Humor

I got an advance copy of a short book of stories.  It only took me a few of hours to read—doctor’s office waiting room, restaurant table and my favorite chair, in front of the gas log fireplace—but I was delighted. As the father of two boys and grandfather of two boys, there is so much in this book to enjoy.


Con Chapman’s Scooter and Skipper Blow Things Up is a book that will have those who are fathers of boys grinning in remembrance and mothers thinking, “That’s’s what I suspected those males were doing!”

It’s a short book—only 112 pages—but there are at least as many smiles and several sites of outright laughter.

The father’s conversations with his sons carry the action well and his internal observations provide grins and often, thought-provoking introspection.

As the book progresses, the boys are maturing and their questions, as well as responses, are appropriate to those ages.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it—particularly to those who have, or plan to have, sons.scooterfrontcovernobleed
