About the Author:

John McGranaghan has always been fascinated by outer space but it was his youngest son, Kyle, who asked for the planet Saturn for his fourth birthday. That request became the inspiration for Saturn for My Birthday. John has also written stories and articles for Boys Quest Magazine, Pockets Magazine, Columbia Magazine, and local newspapers. He is winner of the 2001 Pockets Fiction Contest. When John isn t writing, he enjoys sports and spending time with his wife and two boys. John currently works as a school counselor in the Philadelphia suburbs. This is his first picture book.

Review:

I always say Sylvan Dell Publishers have the best children's books, and Saturn for my Birthday is no exception. The book makes your heart sing, and the reader longs for the blazing fire, a soft sofa, and your own Saturn wrapped in a blanket lounging with you (see the book for this scene). Perfect for the family library, and a must have for schools and public libraries. --Armchair Interviews

This is a truly clever story. The author did a wonderful job overlaying science facts in a light-hearted, non-technical story. The illustrations are wonderful, and the two-page spread of father and son pointing to the stars is just beautiful. Kids will enjoy the humor and learn some great facts about the solar system in this picture book that plays on their favorite things: pets and birthdays. --The Reading Tub

What an excellent and innovative book!!! A must have for every library. --Pennsylvania School Library Association
