The Adventures of Dod

Thomas R. Williams was raised in Utah, roaming the fields and mountains with his best friend, Kyle. He adamantly told his mother many times that he was an outdoor boy and, therefore, had no interest in reading. Now, a few decades later, he’s decided that books aren’t so bad.

If you’re a kid or you remember being one, read the short passages about when Thomas was young. If you’re a parent, you might enjoy the excerpts from the annual Christmas letter Thomas sends out to his family and friends--it's always devoted to the funny things that happen when you’re raising kids (he has thirteen).

Thomas Williams and his publisher, Zettai Makeru, support kids getting a good education. Thomas has visited tens of thousands of kids in schools to promote reading and writing.  Recently, many kids participated in The Adventures of Dod 500 word essay contest.  31 students were awarded cash prizes, including the first place of $1,000!

WHO SAID IT?
SEE IF YOU KNOW...

 "Show them you're a Chantolli, my boy!  Show them!"

~ Juny, Book 2

"...don't be quick to judge.  Beneath every wiggling glove is a hand, and it's behind the mask where the true man lies.  He has his good reasons, I'm sure: We know Dod." 

~ Bonboo, Book 2

"Okay, you're right. Run me through with your sword and get it over with. I admit I was wrong."

~ Boot, Book 1

"Not so fast.  I know you. You're full of tricks. The moment I turn my back, you'll disappear for another three months." 

~ Jibb, Book 2

"Oh tick-blood!" 

~ Buck, Book 1

"Ludicrous!  Stand back....You're telling me he's a threat?" 

~ Ingrid, Book 2

"Promise me you'll seek out the full truth and the secrets after I'm dead..."

~ Bonboo, Book 1

 "I'll have you for lunch. You're a nobody."

~ Sawb, Book 1

"No worries, honey.  I can keep up with you if you help me." 

~ Ingrid, Book 2

 "Yes, that's very true--The Dread--my goodness, I hate thinking of The Dread."

~ Commendus, Book 1

 "Then good!  Their anger will serve me well!"

~ Dark Hood, Book 2

"So he's dead and life goes on without him, huh?"

~ Boot, Book 1

"I don't imagine he'll be here to bother you tonight....He's out watching again." 

~ Saluci, Book 2

 "...how many trees need to fall before it's not just the wind?"

~ Juny, Book 1

 "The day anyone from Green beats Sawb is the day I fancy up and prance the halls like Eluxa."

~ Kwit, Book 1

“Too much truth in the hands of a liar is more dangerous than a world of lies told to the truthful. When people like The Dread are mostly honest, they’re more deadly.”

~ Bonboo, Book 1

"As you can all see, I'm a fortunate man indeed..." 

~ Commendus, Book 2

"We mostly think about tragedy in terms of what has happened, not what could have happened." 

~ Dod, Book 1

"We need another quick mind around here these days--tough times with the likes of Dreaderious and his kind lurking about."

~ Mercy, Book 1

"Always question the unusual, but be particularly skeptical of the apparent. Your opponent, if he or she is witty, will capitalize on the obvious to ensnare you.  Don't fall for it." 

~ Youk, Book 1
