The Misadventures of Hobart Hucklebuck is the first juvenile fantasy book to be released from Stony Meadow Publishing. Aimed at the 8-11 year old audience, the book is the first in a scheduled series featuring Hobart Hucklebuck and his friends in the amazing setting of Pennywhistle in a little magic shop on Druid Lane.

BOOK OVERVIEW:

Things are not as they should be in Pennywhistle. Enchanted toasters are not toasting, enchanted sprinklers are not sprinkling and Hobart Hucklebuckís origami messenger birds are suddenly attacking him. Someone seems to be draining the power from all of the enchanted items in the village. But who could it be and why have they implicated Hobartís grandfather? The Misadventures of Hobart Hucklebuck follows Hobart and his friends, Specks Spacklethack and Rosie Rumpleskirt, as they try to solve this mystery and free Hobartís grandfather from the Tower of Tribulation on Mumblemonk Mountain. The trioís investigation into the mysterious happenings on Druid Lane gets them into hot water more than once and ultimately brings them dangerously close to disaster not only for themselves, but the entire village of Pennywhistle.

What They Are Saying About THE MISADVENTURES OF HOBART HUCKLEBUCK:

"What a fun read! Stan Swanson has spun a clever, imaginative tale in a fantastical world that is at the same time marvelously grounded in human relationships that young readers will identify with. From his disheveled red hair to his cat phobia, Hobart Hucklebuck is a memorable main character who possesses an 'every kid' quality that makes it easy to root for him as he uses his clumsy magic to seek the truth and fight a frightening villain. The Misadventures of Hobart Hucklebuck will keep readers captivated through the final page and voracious for more."
