Nassau Bay, (PressExposure) October 02, 2008 -- Meet the Brittles in Monstermania is the latest,talented work from Hal Pollock and his Monsterbook series of illustrated childrenâs rhyme books. It is an imaginative parody of the Beatlesâ story with four lovable monsters from Monsterpool, England. Pollock got his inspiration for the rhyming Monsterbook series from the Dr. Seuss books he loved as a child. Meet the Brittles is the story of Riff, Lefty, Mojo and Sticks and all the Beatlesâ timeless music that generations have come to know and love. It includes the groupsâ adoring fans, wild antics, and countless parallels to the people, places and things of Beatle lore that will not only fascinate kids but will take their parents on a nostalgic magical mystery tour.
Brittlesâ will undoubtedly be the perfect vehicle for adults to share their memories of the âFab Fourâ with their children and grandchildren, and to introduce the Beatlesâ story and music to new generations. Pollock already has an audio CD of the book with Louise Harrison, Georgeâs sister, as the narrator, adding an authentic Liverpool treatment to the rendition. The CD also includes snippets of twenty-three authentic Beatlesâ songs performed by â1964,â the top Beatles tribute band in the world.
It was in 1999 that Hal Pollock decided to pursue his dream of becoming a songwriter and penned about two hundred sets of lyrics before forming Esquire Records, an independent record label. In 2002, his songwriting evolved into his first childrenâs book, So Many Monsters, and he has been expressing his creativity ever since as evidenced by an excerpt from Meet the Brittles: âThey called themselves the Brittles and they bought some shiny suits, which just looked so fantastic with their pointy Brittle boots.â Pollockâs book is an incredible tribute to one of the most legendary groups of our time.
Hal Pollock lives in suburban Cleveland with his wife, and has two grown children. Check out this imaginative authorâs web site at http://www.monsterbooks.net.
