"Pickswicks Plan" is a charming children's fable introducing the reader to Pickwick, a tiny pixie who gets an idea from the IdeaRoolus Blick and goes on an adventure with OctoDoll and the Emperor Angelfish to rescue their friend, Goodful. Along the way problems arise and they make new friends such as Harky the shark. Each character’s introduction moves the story forward nicely. All this takes place in Pixie Town, a land filled with imagination and wonders for the reader to discover!
This enchanting story will entertain children and adults alike. In a land where smiles tame sharks and villains are defeated by laughter, the author weaves a positive message with humor and fun. I couldn’t help but smile as I read this story! I especially enjoyed the illustrations, which are creative and colorful and enrich the overall entertainment value of the narrative. The character names and concepts are witty and fun, like Gubber Nodder who nods with a mouth filled with chocolate syrup that might splatter or the Prock, a bird that barks to wake everyone up. Lovers of fables and fairy tales will want to pick this up. I look forward to reading more of Pickwick's adventures and recommend it to parents looking for refreshing new stories to read to their children! My favorite quote from the book: “The amazing thing about a smile is that, once you wear a smile, the darkness lightens, and one does not feel frightened or sad anymore!”
