Gregory G. Allen is on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate his #Spooky #ChapterBook "The Monsters of Marymuont Mansion," The book centers around a young monster named Toby who lives in the basement of the Marymont mansion and longs to venture out into the world beyond Halloween. Through Toby's journey, the book explores themes of self-acceptance, diversity, and chosen family. Gregory shared that he has a passion for telling stories that encourage children to embrace their differences and accept others who may be different as well. Gregory's engaging school presentations are dynamic and interactive, aimed at capturing the attention of young readers. He emphasizes the importance of being quick on his feet and engaging with the audience, even running around the auditorium to maintain energy and interest. Gregory believes that a static podium speech can bore children, so he prefers to be active and animated, keeping them enthralled. He also discussed his previous book, "Chicken Boy: The Amazing Adventures of a Superhero with Autism," inspired by his godson. Gregory shared how his godson initially didn't realize he was the inspiration for the book but later read it and identified with the character.
