What Readers are Saying
Dear David, Thank you so much for the books. I loved LITTLE BOY BOO! and cannot wait to read SEAMSTRESS. I spoke with Mrs. Siblo, our library teacher at P.S.42, and she will be contacting you to set up an author visit. Dennis and I look forward to meeting up with you again.
Hi David! Staten Island Community Charter School thanks you for your visit. The kids are loving your book! I have a few more orders for you but I will wait until Monday to call in case there are others. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
What a wonderful experience for my little sister. I think every child should experience Boo Boo Baxter, the main character in Dr. Mercaldo's new children's book .
What a wonderful little book I bought one for my seven year old daughter and had to go out and buy another for my eight year old son, it was so much fun watching them draw and illustrate their books. I hope more books like this come out before they grow up. Thanks.
David Mercaldo has a way of bringing out human emotion with his pen. Yes, I laughed and cried...and I remembered...and oh, how I remembered!
FERRY is an excellently written, well thought out and entertaining novel about people and life, and if I didn't simply love the novel I wouldn't be writing about it!
FERRY is a true depiction of family life as I know it to be. Angelo Marullo, Mercaldo's main character, pays homage to those of Italian descent and dispels the common misconceptions associated with Italian Americans.
