Tad dedicated all four books to his father:
One: “This book is dedicated to my father, Joseph Hill Evans, with love. Actually, Dad doesn’t read fiction, so if someone doesn’t tell him about this, he’ll never know.”
Two: “This book is dedicated to my father, Joseph Hill Evans, with love. As I said before, Dad doesn’t read fiction. He still hasn’t noticed that this thing is dedicated to him. This is Volume Two – let’s see how many more until he catches on.”
Three: “This is still dedicated to you-know-who, even if he doesn’t. Maybe we can keep this a secret all the way to the final volume.”
Tad said he is thinking about including his fathers email address in the fourth book since either he is playing a very sly game, or he really doesn’t know about the dedications yet.
