Annette A Big Hairy Mom Cover yellow Irish Comic_edited.jpg

"Annette: A Big, Hairy Mom by John S. McFarland is a delightfully illustrated romp for young readers, woven together with legend, conspiracy, monsters, colorful characters and unforgettable naming conventions such as Wesley Interruptus Buttinski. McFarland has the whimsical storytelling of Roald Dahl. A terrific book to read aloud to the kids." Kevin M. Folliard, author of Grayson North, Frost-Keeper of the Windy City.

"Annette: A Big, Hairy Mom is the kind of book every young Cryptid enthusiast should read. Adventure, surprises, and discovery await the young mind in this delightful book."  David Bakara, Expedition Bigfoot Museum, Blue Ridge, Georgia.


"All parts of this book are scintillatingly believable in their sharp focus, sure character and plot development. Like J.K. Rowling and others, McFarland never underestimates the sophistication and understanding of his intended audience." Midwest Book Review.


"Everyone loves Annette and its such a lovely book that as soon as children finish it they want to read it again!"  Sanja Petriska, Ex Libris.
