READ THE BOOK…WATCH THE MOVIE Currently, in Development, 1663 Media Arts, LLC presents an Adventurous, Family-Friendly Film based on the popular Illustrated Children’s Book, George Washington’s Army And Me, by Author & Illustrator Michael Dooling. Click here to go to the film’s website… http://gwarmyandme.com/ Over the past twenty years, I have illustrated over sixty books, written four and visited over 950 schools nationwide inspiring children to read, write, and draw. “You have truly made a difference in the life of a child,” said one librarian. “He is still writing!” I write books about people who have changed the world. Stories that will inspire children to learn more about history and want to read more. School Library Journal said that Young Thomas Edison, “belongs in every library”. The Great Horseless Carriage Race is about the first automobile race that led to the first automobile company and changed America. George Washington's Army and Me is about families that followed their father's to war and helped the army gain America’s freedom. One review said that George Washington’s Army and Me “is a perfect addition to a classroom library.” My next book, Fossil Hunter is about William Foulke who discovered the first nearly complete dinosaur skeleton in 1858 proving that dinosaurs once existed.
