Congratulations to JVHS alumnus Todd McClain, who has self-published his first book, "Captain Tall Tale, How Captain Tall Tale Became Tall, Part, 1."
McClain is an author and entertainer who has performed at many Southern California theme parks, including Disneyland, Universal Studios, Six Flags, Legoland, and Knott's Berry Farm, where he was a stuntman. He has also appeared as an extra on television and in film.
McClain, now a resident of Las Vegas, decided "to change the world for the better" when he was in kindergarten at Van Buren Elementary School. His goal in life is to "spread peace by teaching others the 'three steps to safe adventure in life.' "
He will be performing as Captain Tall Tale at SkyPark at Santa's Village, near Lake Arrowhead, for eight weeks in November and December.
