George Giese

Author George Gieseabout this book: My love of video games goes back as far as my memories go. "Super Mario Bros.," "The Legend of Zelda," "Star Fox." These iconic games and more are fundamental to my being. Even into the sleep-deprived hours of early parenthood, the passion for my favorite childhood video games burned bright. And that's because great games tell stories. Legendary games pull players inside those stories. Gamers like me never forget them.

That is the foundation for my collection of lyrical tales about a boy, Monte McGnarly, and his video game adventures. Monte doesn't just play video games-- he enters their worlds and lives them! From action titles and racers to puzzlers and sports, roleplayers and platformers and games of all sorts. Monte McGnarly is what all gamers wish they could be: the Hero inside their favorite games!

Monte's adventures are each inspired by my favorite video games. Lighthearted, lyrical and original tales that will take gamers of all ages into new worlds created with the hearts and souls of the classics in mind. For new gamers, they are fun stories about a boy and the magic of video games. For gamers from way back, they are odes to the games that are still part of us today.

I've pledged a small portion of my author's share to St. Jude's, as I hope that all kids have the opportunity to enjoy playing video games, no matter their physical struggles. May their recoveries be swift, and their gaming adventures be many.
