His novel, The Poodle at The Poodle, which re-tells the Faustian legend in the setting of the advertising business in the 1960's, was greeted by Publishers Weekly as a well-made book that offers great knowledge of advertising and descriptions of air travel . . . believable dialogue and a good hook. His Tyler's Titanic is an early chapter book about what happens when a boy finds a way to visit the wreckage of the great ship on the ocean floor. In The Wright Brothers: Inventors of the Airplane, he tells the sixth- to ninth-grade reader the Wrights' life stories and explains how they brought the world the miracle of flight.
