Everyone loves a good story, but the qualifications of what makes a story great differ from reader to reader. Whose Story Is This, Anyway? by debut picture book author Mike Flaherty explores this idea with a hilarious clash of genres unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
Our humble narrator thinks he’s got a great story for you, but he barely begins before he’s interrupted . . . by a scallywag pirate with a thrilling legend of mermaids and sea monsters! Soon an entire cast of colorful characters—including a hungry dinosaur, an alien bent on world domination, and a heroic knight—derails the boy’s saga. Everyone has a tale to tell—but if they can all get on the same page, this might turn out to be the best story ever!

Until then, he’ll just keep writing stories.
