Book review: This review means the world to me. A child’s honest review of Rumble’s First Scare.

Book cover

Ockleberries to the Rescue  – Children’s chapter book

Tansy and Crispin help all the forest animals, with their ailments or injuries, no matter how big or how small. The healing potions and practices they use were handed down generation to generation. Living in a home built within the roots of a magnificent oak tree, the two sprites and their animal helpers, remain hidden from human eyes.

Crispin wishes to find a long ago lost cave filled with ancient healing books and potion recipes. No matter where he travels in the forest he searches for it. Always hoping… Will he find it? What is the story behind the cave? When humans come into the forest – what happens?

Follow the adventures of Tansy and Crispin and meet their forest animal companions. http://www.dreamwritepublishing.ca/products/ockleberries-rescue

Review:  Goodreads – Bianca Watson‘s review – Jul 23, 15 – 5 of 5 stars

My daughter is reading this book. She says “I love the stories of how Tansy and Crispin help all the forest animals.” My daughter is nine and I recommend the book for the ages 8-12. Two thumbs up. A young fan happy with her signed copy of Ockleberries to the Rescue.

Its eyes widened as it grew closer and closer to her face. Alice was paralyzed with fear, clutching her bed covers with white knuckled fingers. The creature’s mauve skin glistened with slime and drops fell onto its spindly pointed claws. Alice opened and closed her mouth willing her voice to sound in the dark bedroom. The claws clicked together as the monster’s jaw opened. Click. Click. Clickety-click.

What future awaits Alice? Are her guardians who they seem? Will the monster reveal itself? These questions and more are answered as Alice realizes a secret kept for generations.

  1. Hi Mandy,

    I found your blog as part of the WD October Platform Challenge. Wishing your books had been around back when my two children were young. As homeschoolers and avid readers, we frequented the local libraries and literally carted cartloads of books home. We devoured all kinds of books-fantasy, fairy tale, historical fiction, just plain funny ones, classic tales, etc. I just know my kids would have LOVED Rumble, Tansy and Crispin. Heck, I love them already and haven’t even read the books…it’s just that easy to fall in love with your characters!!

    So, I chose to share this post from my blog about some of the fun ways we learned during our summer vacation-fun + learning = extra days for our school log!!!

    Wishing you continued success writing unforgettable characters who inspire, engage, and delight children!!!

    Sincerely,
    Karen Doll
