Burgerhead and Mean Jerry book covers 1-

Meet Burgerhead and Mean Jerry!

A grandson in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and his grandpa in Florida are absolutely killing it in the children’s book game! Dan Madson and his grandson Mack have created a wonderful new series of wholesome, fun books for kids of all ages.


Mack is the creator of two memorable characters named Burgherhead and Mean Jerry. Dan is the author and writes stories based on the shenanigans he got into when he was a kid. Dan and Mack have collaborated to create an adorable cast of characters and put them into stories that recall the joys of childhood. The books are illustrated by a talented artist from Belarus named Veronika Gonchar.


Each story teaches important lessons as well. Friends accept each other for who they are and how they look. Personal responsibility is a character trait of great importance. Actions tend to have consequences. Kids should be allowed to have fun and make mistakes. Welcome to the world of Burgerhead and Mean Jerry!
