Pepper Neely is no stranger to dangerous situations. In The Supernatural Pet Sitter: The Magic Thief, the young gnome defeated an evil witch who was stealing magic from the Familiars that Pepper took care of. She wouldn’t have survived without the intervention of a pack of werewolves, who endured painful, fiery spells to save Pepper’s life.

Now Pepper is determined to repay the werewolves for their sacrifice, no matter what it takes. She decides to break the centuries-old curse that keeps them in wolf form. At first she keeps her plans a secret, but it’s not long before Pepper realizes she will need all the help she can get to end this curse. Magic is everywhere as enemy witches cast dangerous spells to stop Pepper.

Pepper and her family must trust the local witches and work together with them to fend off the deadly spells, find the curse, and break it—before the hostile witches get the best of them.

Every animal can talk to you. You just have to know how to listen.

Pepper Neely is better at this than most, especially because she is in charge of pet sitting all the familiars in her neighborhood. A familiar is a pet magically linked to a witch or warlock. As a gnome, Pepper is no stranger to spells and sorcery. She also knows that, despite their special name, familiars aren’t all that different from regular animals. They get anxious when separated from their people, so Pepper uses her special gnome powers to calm them down. She watches Cranky the high-strung ferret, Frank the laid-back parrot, King Arthur the elderly tortoise, and many others.

Then, something terrible begins happening to the familiars. Someone is stealing their magic! It not only prevents Pepper from communicating with them but breaks their magical connection with their people. When King Arthur’s magic is stolen, his owner’s powers stop working too. Pepper can sense that the tortoise is very scared.

In order to protect the animal’s magic, Pepper decides to track down the culprit. With the help of her best friend, Luna, and her brother, Jax, Pepper fights to protect all of the special pets.

Careers, entrepreneurship

“Masterful … An immensely appealing book because of its readable style … and its realistic but soft Asian-style illustrations.” – Crystie Cook, poet.

A child with a knack for solving problems helps some hungry fish and finds a treasure. Illustrated folk tale teaches how to spot opportunities to help others and make money; comes with ideas for businesses; money-making activities; and online resources on finding customers, managing money, job ideas, and moving up in an organization (for kids ages 4 and up). Young children will be captivated by the story; older ones will want to apply the things they learn about business. Teach someone to fish. This how-to book on work bridges the gap between what kids learn in school about jobs, careers, small business, finance, economics, and what they should know (how to serve others).

Middle Grade – Molly Bell and the Wishing Well

by Bridget Geraghty

ISBN: 978-1541034006
ASIN: B01MU58M3S
Pages: 138
Genre: Middle Grade Fiction

Molly Bell is an eleven-year old girl who used to be a whimsical, sporty type of a child with a zest for living. All that has been turned upside down by the untimely death of her cherished mother two years ago. To make matters worse, her father is getting remarried to a high-maintenance beauty that Molly seemingly has nothing in common with, and she comes with an annoying six-year old son, Henry, who finds a way to wreck everything in his path.

Molly can’t find anything about her new circumstances to be excited about, until her Aunt Joan tells her about the wishing well at Molly’s grandparents’ farm. According to Aunt Joan, every wish she ever made there came true. And it just so happens that Molly and Henry will be staying at the farm for a week while their parents are on their honeymoon. Molly is convinced if she could just find that wishing well, she could wish for her mom to come back to life and everything will be okay again.

But Molly is in for a few surprises, and more that a few hard lessons about being careful what you wish for when the consequences of Molly’s selfish desires wreak havoc on her entire family. Can Molly make things right again through the wishing well? Or will she need to find it within herself to bring back the joy in her life that has been missing all this time?

Children’s Book – When Fred the Snake Goes to School

when-fred-the-snake-goes-to-schoolWhen Fred the Snake Goes to School
By Peter B. Cotton
Publisher: PeterCottonBooks
ISBN: 978-0988337022
Pages: 30
Genre: Children’s Book

This is the 2nd of the rhyming and beautifully illustrated books about Fred the friendly snake. It tells how the boy persuades his mother and the teacher to allow him to take Fred to school. Everyone was nervous at first, but Fred won them over by turning him to useful things they needed, like a jump rope, soccer goal and waterslide. He got a million merit points.

Fred is often called Fred-Fred because he got squished in two in the first book when failing to watch when crossing the road, but he got mended nicely.

The Midwest Book Review in 2015 said “Move over for Fred-Fred Lewis Carroll”

Genre: Children’s Book

Fred the snake was sent as a pet by Jungle Jim, but got squished in two (and became Fred-Fred) when run over by an ambulance. To sew the two halves back together, the doctor required a special jungle thread that brave Jim was able to get from underneath a rhino. Fred was mended and will be more careful crossing the road in future.

Genre: Children’s Book

Fred the snake was happy to survive his unfortunate adventure of getting squished in two (thus becoming Fred-Fred for a while) and he had a marvelous time going to school where he was the hit of the playground – thanks in large part to his skill in bending himself into useful playground equipment like slides and soccer goals! But poor Fred is feeling very lonesome without his former exotic animal pals. Will a visit from Jungle Jim and a collection of wild creatures (including an attractive lady snake) lift his spirits? This third book in the Fred the Snake series takes a colorful menagerie of jungle critters on a wild over-the-seas romp to visit the lonesome serpent in his new home of Charleston, South Carolina. As always, an adventure with Fred makes for a fun, colorful, and unforgettable experience.

Genre: Children’s Book

The first Fred book “When Fred the Snake got Squished and Mended” tells how the friendly snake was sent as a present to the young boy by Jungle Jim. Fred became Fred-Fred temporarily after an accident crossing the road. Happily, the doctor was able to mend him with some special thread that brave Jim collected from beneath a fierce rhino. In the second book “When Fred the Snake goes to School” , Fred becomes popular when he twists himself into many useful things for the playground, like a soccer goal and a water-slide. But he became lonely and wrote to Jungle Jim, asking him to come and visit his new home. The third book “When Jungle Jim comes to visit Fred the Snake” tells how Jim and many forest friends brave the ocean journey, to arrive in South Carolina. Now, in the fourth book “When Fred the Snake and friends explore Charleston”, we follow Fred, the boy, his Mama, Jim and all the jungle visitors as they check out the tourist sights of the city of Charleston. They took a carriage ride, cruised the market and rainbow row, visited the children’s museum and fort sumter, splashed in the fountain at Waterfront park, gazed in pretty shop windows, ate moules frites at Rue de Jean ,and took a helicopter ride over the city and big bridge. After that they were tired.
