I was a first grade teacher and retired two years ago. I loved the James Flora books and so did my classes. Unfortunately, I had only Grandpa's Ghost Stories and My Friend Charlie.

One of my classes was so enthralled with these two stories that we wrote to Mr. Flora. He was wonderful and responded with a beautifully illustrated letter. He could not help me in my search to find his other books.

Since my retirement, I have managed to build myself a 17-book library of his wonderful stories. I am still looking for others. I will cherish all especially as I share them with my grandbabes! I will read them all many, many times over the next few years!

Thank you for having this website. I was thrilled to find it.
