Haunted Halloween at Kool’s School
Lessons Learned
by Bruce R. Foster




This true storied bilingual children’s book, “Haunted Halloween at Kool's School - Lessons Learned” features a very hectic day for principal Kool at his elementary school on a highly memorable Halloween day. Twenty-four of illustrator Josh Stewart’s evocative, water coloured illustrations grace the book. Children enjoy finding a mini pic of principal Kool dressed as a clown hiding on any page containing a large illustration. The ultimate number of hidden mini pics is a subtle tribute to the late Kobe Bryant. The book portrays a number of unique activities that occur in many of our nation’s schools on this trick or treat day. As with all of Foster’s other four true storied books, a portion of the sale of each book sold supports Kids Help Phone (Canada).

AUTHOR’S BIOGRAPHY

Bruce R. Foster is a semi-retired educator, who works as an elementary school principal on an intermittent basis. He has incredible true stories to draw on from his varied educational experiences.

Mr. Kool, the title name of the main character in his books, comes from one of those exact experiences when he encountered a couple of third grade girls on the playground. When asked if they remembered his name, one curtly stated, “Mr. Whatever!” The second one politely said, “It is Mr. Kool with a “K” because you are so Kind to Kids.”

Bruce proudly reports that a portion of the sale of each book goes directly to support Kids’ Help Phone, (Canada) 1-800-668-6868.

LA BIOGRAPHIE DE L’AUTEUR

Bruce R. Foster, un éducateur semi-retraité, continue d’offrir ses services de directeur à l’école élémentaire sur une base intermittente.

Le nom du personnage principal de ses livres « M. Kool » provient d'une telle expérience. Lorsqu’ il a rencontré deux étudiantes de troisième année dans une cour de récréation, il leur a demandé si elles se souvenaient de son nom, une d’elles répond sèchement, « M. Peu Importe! » mais la deuxième répond poliment, « M. Kool, avec un 'K' parce que vous êtes si sympa avec les élèves! » (Kind to Kids)

Bruce estime qu’il est important de remercier la collectivité, ainsi il est heureux d’annoncer qu’une partie des bénéfices de la vente de ses livres ira à Jeunesse, J’écoute (Canada) 1-(800) 668-6868.
