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.
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
"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."
