Mr. Hookumbacker is 215 pages of magical adventure that takes place in the Forest of the Cracking Stone. The forest is filled with a bubble tums (they care for the forest), honey tickles, sapling shines. (Aren't these names great??)
Cherry Petals lives in the Wiggle Twig Village but must travel far away to find a Yella Yella Yum Yum Tree to save her friend. This is a fun book to read out loud. The names are fun, the story is fun and the message is important. There is so much adventure in this book kids of all ages will thoroughly enjoy it.
The descriptions are vivid and story flows well. The kids will look forward to story time just to see what happens next. Alright, and to hear NaNa get tongue tide again!!
