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.

A Princess in servitude.

Rose Red, the younger sister of Snow White, lives with her stepmother the evil Queen. She works, cooks and cleans night and day without reward, but the evil Queen has a beautiful throne Rose Red greatly admires and on which longs to sit—if only for a moment—but is forbidden to do so.

The evil Queen also has a longing for majestic objects, including a beautiful royal red robe, which can only be stitched from Rose Red’s heartstrings and dyed by the girl’s young rich blood at midnight on the night of the Blood-Moon after Rose Red has been poisoned by the thorn of the cursed rose.

Rose Red escapes only to find seven curious elves living in a life-sized dollhouse. To her surprise and delight she finds out the elves, as slaves once themselves to the Queen, were the tiny craftsmen that constructed the throne.

As young Rose Red and the seven elves run for their lives through the Dark Forest, she asks the elves to build her a similar throne. The elves gladly oblige, but instead build for her three other gifts that might just save her life. Will that be enough, or will the evil Queen’s lust for greed be Rose Red’s downfall?
