Books for kids you'll be happy your kids are reading. 

When I told my kids about this

magical madness deal

they were a little concerned.

(Especially my girls. They think my

books should cost $100 each.)

Books for boys and girls.

I took my award winning


award winning books for kids

...and put all four books into a single set.

Four fantasy-adventure stories.

Then I added two exclusive short stories...

These funny flash fiction tales with a twist

are available nowhere else and I cowrote

them with my sons. :)  

Casey Grimes short stories.
Kid fiction authors.

...and I cut the cost.

Cut cost


Because I don't think books for kids

(and adventurous grownups) should

break the bank.

"I really hesitate to say anything is 'like

Harry Potter,' but if you love the hero’s

journey and the school of magic elements

from HP, I bet you’ll like this too!"


AJ Vanderhorst opening books

Hi, I'm AJ. I live in tornado country with my wife, kids, and our too-many pets. My calling card is books for kids you'll be happy your kids are reading.

In case you haven't guessed, my stories take place in an alternate USA where monsters stalk the suburbs. They've won the Wishing Shelf and Readers' Favorite international awards and have been critically acclaimed by Kirkus, Bookworm for Kids, LitPick, Book Pipeline, The Strawberry Post, and many more.

It's a privilege to be able to offer these books to you at a deep discount and I'm confident you and the kids in your life will love each of these stories.

Check both ways for monsters,

What are the stories about?

Tree fortresses. Forgotten magic.

A monster-control academy where battles are as common as breakfast.

And that's just getting started.

Casey Grimes thinks his invisibility is permanent until he finds a secret forest society in charge of monster control. Now he can finally be seen—but Sylvan Woods hates outsiders as much as it loves killing monsters. As Butcher Beasts invade,  courage is his only chance to belong.
