Children’s author, poet, storyteller, musician and singer/songwriter,
Darrell House wears a lot of hats. Described as Grizzly Adams meets
Key West, he has a magnetic personality and is a powerful performer.
Having presented in hundreds of schools and libraries, he is also a regular
performer, nationwide, at Reading Festivals and Early Childhood
Education Conferences. Miller the Green Caterpillar, his children’s
picture book, is an inspirational story of setting goals, and his two
CD’s of original music, Underneath the Cushions on the Couch and
Makes Me Feel Like Singing are packed with original songs enjoyed by
kids and parents alike. Speed-B-B-B-Bumps, a spoken word CD collection
of mostly humorous poems, earned a 2010 Parents’ Choice Gold Award,
and autumn 2011 witnessed the arrival of his beautifully illustrated
children’s book, The King of Fish, winner of the Florida Writer's Association
Royal Palm Literary Award. In 2015 House's first chapter book, Bennie & Bonnie
earned Third Place Honors in the RPLA literary Awards. Accompanying himself
on acoustic guitar, Darrell captivates an audience like few can, and the way he embraces literacy
and family values get kids excited about reading and writing.

The Man Who Could Fix Anything
by Darrell House
Published: September 23, 2013.
The Man Who Could Fix Anything is not a children's story. Then again, there are no 50 shades of anything else. It is simply a short love story, told in verse, with the lilting style associated with several of House's works. House is a wonderful storyteller who has an eye for detail, an ear for honest, lyrical writing and the ability to capture emotion with words and vivid images.
The Shadow Who Stole the Whistle
by Darrell House
The Shadow Who Stole the Whistle is a delightful short story dealing with the friendship between a boy and his shadow and how misunderstandings may lead to unimagined, mystical consequences. Award winning author and master storyteller, Darrell House, has created a tale that should give readers a giggle and perhaps bring a tear to the eye with its lovely, thoughtful, happy ending.
