The Book Launch last weekend was a great success and I am having to reprint more copies of “Odie the Terrible” already.
Jean Severn, the widow of Wally Severn, attended the book launch with her brother and was very pleased with the book. Wally, of course, played Nathaniel to Odie’s Jonathon in the successful masked tag team wrestling partnership known as “The Undertakers.”
The cousin of Bob Abbott also attended the launch and she was very pleased with the way that her cousin was portrayed in the book. Bob, of course, also played Nathaniel following the death of Wally Severn. Jonathon was never unmasked – unlike Bob’s Nathaniel.
