Praise for Tom E. Moffatt’s books

Amazon customer ~ “I love a good joke. From the innocent kind to the morbid, if it makes me laugh, I will take it. As this book is tailored for kids, it was very interesting for me. There were plenty of puns (which I also love!) that had me laughing or shaking my head because it was, literally, a dad joke. But what really intrigued me was the fact that this book can help children realize that reading is fun once they see how game-changing expanding on their vocabulary is. The creativity that is sometimes needed to use innuendos and puns is astonishing, and something to be praised. I loved this book, and will most definitely be reading it with my children once they are a bit older. I would recommend this book to anyone!”

Amazon customer ~ “A hilarious collection of short stories for children, Tom Moffat’s Mix-Up Mayhem is a delightful read. Following a series of misadventures and impossible situations, the reader joins Tim Hoffman as he tries to understand the chaos that surrounds him. The book is well written with lovely illustrations sure to capture and maintain the interest of any child. Moffat is truly a master storyteller and really understands the mind of kids and what they think of/find interesting. I also liked how the stories even though silly, still manage to teach some sort of lesson but without being heavy-handed. A fun read for the entire family, Mix-Up Mayhem is sure to be a book that one will revisit time and again.”
