About the name Mr. ChickenBiscuits

In the early 1990s, while leading a church Sunday School class for kindergartners and first-graders, "Mr. Bob" referred to himself as "Mr. ChickenBiscuits" just for fun—and the name stuck.  In the following years, he tried other names, but none delighted this age group quite like Mr. ChickenBiscuits.  And year after year, kids in every class always wanted Mr. ChickenBiscuits to draw Sam.

Sam is over fifty!

Bob drafted the first Sam books in the 1960s when he was still called Bobby.  Bob first wrote the books for his younger sister and brother.  Later, Bob would read them—in their rough form—to his kids.  Now retired with grandchildren, Bob has finally published the early books—and many more—over a half-century after Sam first appeared on a page!  We hope it was worth the wait.

Bob would love to hear from you—please tell him what you think of the books, the website, or anything else.  Cheers!
