Author Biography

Peter G. Reynolds is a writer and documentary filmmaker from Toronto, Canada. He began writing children's stories when his son was born in 2009. When his son Griffin turned five, he asked "where do lost things go before they're found?". Like any good father, Peter answered, "to a magical world that contains all lost things". This was the inspiration for Lost Hallway. He is currently busy working on Musings and Other Nonsense, a weekly podcast of children's stories and poems and just released his first chapter book "Stitches in Time Travel".

Lost Hallway: Where Do Lost Things Go? by Peter G Reynolds is an adorable, imaginative children’s picture book, cleverly designed to help children develop mindfulness when it comes to keeping track of their belongings. Forgetful Griffin is not too happy at all. Where in the world could his pet and ball have gone? How does he keep losing things? He’s positively convinced there must be a special area, another dimension even, that might hold all the things people lose or misplace. He quickly decides that there is only one thing left to do; hatch a plan to rescue his beloved dog and ball! Will young Griffin learn a new way of keeping track of the important things in his life or is he doomed to experience one disappointing loss after another?

Lost Hallway by Peter G Reynolds is such an entertaining, colorfully illustrated, rhyming sensation! I greatly enjoyed this book from start to finish, especially the rhyming way it’s told and then unfolds. The colorful, detailed illustrations add yet another great element to this awesome book. Perhaps each of us has a little Griffin inside and has at one time or another thought, what is swallowing my socks? How did my keys get up and walk away? Well, now I know. It’s in the ‘Lost Hallway’! Peter G Reynolds offers a well-written, beautifully illustrated book that I found to be an excellent, lesson-learning read and is sure to delight any reader, big or small. Five stars.
