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
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
