Plagiarized. Doh!

CJ copy

Rob Bauer, the guy I did the C.J. In A Pickle review for, sent me this wonderful replica of my book review from the blog listed above… well, almost a replica.  I am not really sure what cabalistic squirrels are, but I am pretty sure C.J. didn’t know about them either. 

If you have not read my review of the book yet, go ahead and take a second to read it, then read this fabulous plagiarizer’s version.

New Kids Book From GCC Author

Robert Bauer, a stay in our church authored this creative and funny story about a male child named C.J. that ends up “in a pickle”.  He divide his own hair in a moment of spontaneity, and tries to lie his way out of owning up to the unfortunate act by telling elaborate tales about “how it happened.”

In the end, he confesses to his Mom that he did indeed divide his own hair, and he admitted he made up the other crazy incidents to conceal up his mistake.

I read this story to my own girls, and they loved it.  Isabelle especially liked the talking elephant at the extreme point that convinces C.J. to tell the truth.  The cabalistic squirrels on each page make reading the story with a nursling is a fun game as well.  An mp3 version of the untruth will be available  with the purchase of the book early after the book is released August 3.  How fun is that?

I’m in such a manner happy for Rob!  He’s a teacher and I deem it’s great that he’s written this book to hinder illustrate an important lesson about telling the truth.  Sometimes it’s harsh to tell the truth.  This book is a great tool to achieve a conversation started about truth telling with your own child or your rank if you are a teacher, or if you just generally like to make out books to kids.

You can support this fabulous author and procure the book on his site… or at the Tate Publishing Website

If you attend GCC, the volume is available in our bookstore.  If you don’t pay attention GCC, the book can be purchased at Barnes and Noble, Borders,, and Family Christian Stores on the model of August 3.

    Ugh! Doesn’t that make you mad? But, I guess…that might be considered a form of flattery.

    When I was in the Notre Dame PR office, there were tons of times when I’d find word-for-word reprints of my news releases in newspapers with someone else’s by-line. Of course, then it was only annoying that some reporter was taking credit for it. I was happy they at least got all the information correct and people’s names spelled right.

    Love the “if you don’t pay attention GCC.” Makes absolutely no sense! Looks like a bad re-creation from a Nigerian scammer.
