Ovation: The Clown That Lost His Funny.


LaurenI’m always impressed by parents who encourage their children to reach for goals that some might feel are out of their reach.  Of course, I believe that children should be allowed to be children, but I also think that many of them appreciate being treated like mature young adults.  As an example, I hate “baby talk”.  When I talk to a child, or even a baby, I use correct grammar.  I cringe when I hear an adult speaking to a child as if he or she were an infant or a puppy.

I have a great deal of respect for Michael Lukaszeski of Atlanta, Georgia, who worked with his eleven-year old daughter, Lauren, to raise enough money to self-publish a book.  Lauren, via an online campaign, raised almost $6,000 to bring The Clown That Lost His Funny to press.

Michael is proud that the “ideas and words belong to Lauren”.  The money that Lauren raised was needed to pay an illustrator for the thirty images the book will contain and to print the first three hundred copies of the finished work.  Most who donated money will receive a digital copy of the book while others will receive a signed hard copy.

Lauren has decided to sell her book on Amazon when it becomes available.  Her father must be quite proud.

Would you buy a book written by an eleven-year-old for the children in your life?

  1. Love the title. So, yes I would be inclined to buy it. I am still waiting on the weight the loss the study promises. :>)


  2. If I still had small children I might buy a book written by another child.
