About the Book

"This is a fast paced light hearted read which will keep you entertained while you alternate between gasping in disbelief and laughing out loud.

Fathered by an aeronautical engineer whose genius helped land Ed “Buzz” Aldrin and Neil Armstrong on the moon. He was abandoned at an orphanage immediately after birth and adopted by the man who Los Angeles Times sports writer Jim Murray claimed may have been the greatest athlete of all time.

Although his name was not Dennis, substantial evidence shows that his unusual image and talent for getting into trouble caused Hank Ketcham (a very close family friend) to use him and his father for the creation and continuation of the comic series, “Dennis the Menace.”

He was all too often left alone at home bored with nothing to do but think up ways to entertain himself to the annoyance of his neighbors. The most notable targets of his annoyance were movie stars like Frank Sinatra and other celebrities including at least three out of the four US presidents he came in contact with (Eisenhower, Nixon, Kennedy and Ford.)

Warning: This book is filled with sarcasm and misadventures that would cause any parent to shutter!"
