Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're playing host to a stop along The Children's Book Review blog tour...a GIVEAWAY stop to be more precise, but more on that in a moment. It stars a Children's Fiction title with a rather unusual name, but the overall concept sounds magical. You don't have to take my word for it though. Let's read a little more about the title in question before we make any decisions, shall we? In today's spotlight, our featured title is...
Tickety Boo and the Black Trunk
About the book...
Highly praised classic fairy tale, Wishapick Tickety Boo and the Black Trunk, a children’s book for all ages, written by acclaimed author MM Allen; and a CD of Wishapick Tickety Boo and the Black Trunk soundtrack composed by the talented Deborah Wynne.
Darkness-utter blackness. Was this why his mother had refused to let Jack unlock his father’s old trunk? It had been two years since his dad had died, and all Jack could think about was examining whatever treasures were stored inside the beloved trunk. But when he finally lifted the lid, he didn’t just fall in –he fell through it into a pit of rattlesnakes. Trying to recall his mother’s stories about the Breathe of All Good Things –anything to help him out of his dangerous predicament-Jack wished he had paid attention rather than mock the tales as childish myths… and that he’d waited to enter the trunk with his sister, Lilly. They could have at least faced this together. Jack quickly learns two things; the villagers in Wishapick think Jack is the only one who can bring light back to Wishapick –and accomplishing this feat is the only way he can return home.
