Some sweet reviews for "Jeff Walker & Mr. B" from readers at Amazon.com

​--- 'I could almost hear Rod Serling in the background warning that you're about to step into the Twilight Zone.'

--- 'Haines-Ainsworth has polished the tale nicely for grown-up audiences, and her characters' personalities and peccadillos made my adult self laugh and nod in world-weary recognition, but there were still plenty of gory details to make the kid in me shout "Ewww, gross!"

--- 'It was just plain fun to read.'

Winking Kat offers dozens of original plays and stories for young audiences
