Jason Thibeault (jasonthibeault) | 2 comments Want to introduce myself as the author of Gertrude's Broken Wand, the first book in my new middle-reader chapter series, Marmalade. This is a really fun book for both parents and kids to read together. I am currently in the throws of finishing up a 25-blogger review tour and the response has been really great. Here's an example:

This book, though for children captivated me and kept me turning the pages…This colorful story doesn’t talk down to children. It is written in a way that’s easy to read, yet challenging…I really enjoyed reading this book and my daughter enjoyed it as well. I had to pull it out from under her last night because she fell asleep with it. I can’t wait to read more books in this series!

You can read more reviews on the publisher's website:

Here's a synopsis of the book:

On an otherwise normal 4th grade school field trip, Rebecca gets separated from her classmates while trying to find the bathroom. But when she slips in the dark and falls down a hole, she ends up in the land of here, an enchanted kingdom that is suffering from a powerful curse…everyday is Halloween. But it’s not costumed trick-or-treaters that roam the land nor is it candy they want. Ghosts, ghouls, werewolves, skeletons and a host of other baddies, eager for a taste of warm flesh, have turned the once beautiful land into a spooky landscape. Unfortunately, Rebecca’s problems have only just begun for when she landed in here she also landed on Gertrude, the kingdom’s witch, breaking her wand and the one chance to lift the curse. Now Rebecca must get Gertrude’s wand fixed, avoid getting eaten (or worse), and find a way home all before the sun sets. Because here needs a real name or it, and everything inside, will cease to exist forever.

It's got a great pace, it's exciting and engaging, and it's fairly easy for both parents and young readers to tackle.

I'd be more than willing to give away a few e-book copies for people who'd like to review it. Just let me know.
