Book Club Mom’s Author Update: News from Robbie and Michael Cheadle

Hi Everyone, I recently caught up with children’s author Robbie and her son, Michael. Today they are sharing their new book with you!

Author names: Robbie and Michael Cheadle

Genre: Children

Book: Haunted Halloween Holiday

News: Robbie Cheadle and her son, Michael, are thrilled to announce that their new book, Haunted Halloween Holiday, is available from TSL Publications and Lulu.com. This entertaining story is aimed at children aged 5 to 9 years old and is beautifully illustrated with Robbie’s fondant and cake art illustrations.

Count Sugular and his family are invited to a party at the Haunted House in Ghost Valley. He and his wife, Witch Honey, decide to hire a gingerbread caravan and enjoy a weekend away. Their young son, Baby Howler, the only male banshee in their extended family, has been keeping them busy with his noisy wailing. A night of sunbathing on the shore of Meringue Pond followed by a Halloween Party the next evening would be lovely.

At sunset the evening before Halloween, the family and their friends set off by broomstick and flying coffin for their holiday adventure. What a wonderful time they are going to have.

Haunted Halloween Holiday has subtle messages for readers about acceptance of difference and dealing with depression, but it is mainly an entertaining fantasy read for children. The language is descriptive but suitable for the target audience and learner readers.

The illustrations are intended to delight young readers and stimulate their imaginations by depicting all sorts of magical creatures fashioned from fondant including Stinkpot the Troll and his sons, Liquorice and Tar, Sourball the black cat, Witch Goody and her golden swans, and Jack Frost who creates beautiful frosty pictures.

The book also contains several fun limericks to introduce the various characters and set the stage for their roles in the story.

Meet Jack Frost

Jack Frost carves pictures during the night
In the morning they sparkle, frosty and white
His work’s individual and unique
He has an interesting technique
Discovering his flower designs is a delight

  1. Reblogged this on Robbie's inspiration and commented:
    Michael and I are over at Book Club Moms blog with a post about Haunted Halloween Holiday. We have featured our character, Jack Frost. Barbara shares lots of interesting titbits about books and excellent reviews of books. She also has a great YouTube Channel where she shares interactive and chatty videos.

  2. Who couldn’t love a character named Baby Howler? (There does the neighborhood🤣). I love that Robbie and Michael share this special connection.

  3. Thanks so much, Barb, for hosting Robbie and Michael and their lastest book. I just love that the two of them create these books together. And Robbie’s fondant creations are amazing. The book sounds like great fun for kids and just on time for Halloween. Congrats, Robbie and Michael. 🙂
