Adding to the magic of Michael Colyar is the recent release of his newest book, Miss Innocent Goes to Kool Skool and Other Silly Stuff. In the colorfully illustrated book, which is specifically “A Poetry Book for Adult Children,” Colyar gets poetic with a collection of poems that reveal his intimate and personal story about his struggles, triumphs and his devotion to his family. With clever and precise word play Colyar eloquently tackles the topics he is most passionate about including – drug addiction, parenting, love, obesity, racism and God.
“I had a lot of fun with this book and it’s a little something different for adult children who still have a little ‘kid’ in them,” said Colyar. “But, be prepared because it does include some colorful language, that is — ‘cussin. As for these two projects – they represent the most challenging works of my career.”
With a forward by renowned motivational speaker and author Les Brown, Miss Innocent Goes to Kool Skool and Other Silly Stuff is rich with Michael’s unique brand of storytelling that digs deep into your soul and heart bringing laughter and joy. The hard cover book is illustrated with brilliant and humorous illustrations by cartoonist and graphic illustrator Ivan Artucovich.
