Beta, or Betamax?

A long time ago, when I was a kid, I folded several sheets of typing paper together and then filled them with a story. A story about a vampire frog, of all things. I guess it isn't so strange in my case. One of my favorite jokes happens to be a Knock-Knock joke, the one with the interrupting cow on the other side of the door. Anyway, I came across the story recently and, during lulls at work, I re-wrote it. While the new version is quite different from the original, the basic story is the same.

I'm going to throw it out here on my blog, a chapter a day (it'll only last a couple weeks, I promise). It's a kids' book. Ignore it if you like. Read it if you dare. And if you do, feel free to tear it apart. I'd appreciate the input. Don't worry about hurting my feelings. I'm not saying you won't -- just don't worry about it. : -)
