Book One: Grammarlocks and the Three Theiyr'res (ages 8 and up)

Meet Grammarlocks, an annoying little brat with no sense of boundaries. Not unlike her mother. Yes, Goldilocks is alive and well (for now).


Papa There and Mam Their are off enjoying Baby They're's spelling be. But the bears will be home soon, and the'll find that someone's been eating their alphabet soup! Will no one ever learn it's best not to disrespect three hungry theiyr'res?


Illustrating the rules of basic grammar, one twisted fairy tale at at time.

Illustrated by the talented Brittany Penn.


NOTE: Friends, this isn't really a children's book. It's your passive-aggressive answer for those grown-up co-workers who still can't tell the difference between there, their, and they're. You're welcome.

Book Two: Silver Hair's Revenge (Grammarlocks Part II, ages 13 and up)

Coming in December


Goldilocks is back, despite Papa's warnings to stay away, and she's hot on the trail of her missing daughter. She suspects the Three Theiy're's know something of her whereabouts. One thing Papa There and Mama Their didn't count on: a mother's determination.


Goldie, now Silver Hair, may teach the bears a lesson this time. That revenge is a bowl of alphabet soup best served cold.


Illustrating the rules of basic grammar, one twisted fairy tale at at time.


NOTE: Friends, this is absolutely not a children's book. It's your visual aid to help us adults memorize the difference between present lie and lay, the past lay and laid, and the past participle lain and laid. Confusing? You bet!  Even for well-educated Theiyr're bears! 



Book Three: The Angel's Angles (Grammarlocks Part III, ages 13 and up)

Release date to be determined



The Angel of the Fairy Forest loathes her job. She's willing to do anything to get out of it. Although the Archangel Michael constantly tries to convince her otherwise, she has many angles yet to pursue.


Until she hears the cries of a baby bear off in the distance. Something terrible has happened. The Angel may learn her own lesson, that it may be best to want what you have, rather than get what you want.


Illustrating the rules of basic grammar, one twisted fairy tale at at time.


NOTE: Once again, friends, this is not children's book. It's another visual aid to help us adults memorize the difference between, well, something and something else!
