Happy Halloween to you all. As a special celebration Book 2 in the Young Ebenezer series is currently on a special Halloween Promo starting at just 99p or 99c for our dotcom friends. A children’s book, a story in verse.

‘A Halloween treat, much better than sweets.’

A time for candy and costumes,
pumpkins and ‘Trick or Treat’.
But beware of the bully
lurking just down the street.

Ebenezer is really excited! It’s his first Halloween to go out ‘Trick or Treating’. Jacob Marley is excited too, but this school bully plans to steal all the kids’ sweets. Can Eb and his friends, along with the magical clock Grandfather Time teach Jacob the error of his ways? Or is the boy doomed to a life of crime, just like his wicked father?

#Promo ‘Young Ebenezer ~ A New Christmas Carol’ Book 1

To celebrate the forthcoming release of Book 2 in the Young Ebenezer Series by Rose English, Book 1 is out as a Kindle Countdown promotion starting at just 99p/99c on Saturday 28th September.

This story is a seasonal treat, a modern, lyrical re-telling of the Charles Dickens classic – ‘A Christmas Carol.’

The book is specially designed for families to share during the Holiday Season, or for young competent readers to try for themselves.

Eb is a spoilt child who really is not one for caring, and he certainly hates sharing. He is watched over by a very special guardian – the family’s ancient longcase clock, who is bestowed with magic. His name is Grandfather Time.

On Christmas Eve Grandfather Time decides he must teach the boy a lesson. So he calls upon his friends; the Ghosts of Past, Present and Future and with lessons to learn he brings forth the first tutor – a little golden-red King Charles spaniel, called Miss Ruby Heart.

Will this unlikely pair be able to teach the boy the error of his ways? Or will he be doomed to be a scruffy, lonely teenager stuck forever in his own little world?

Boing! Boing!

Verse 1

Grandfather Time,
chimes out loud and clear,
he’s telling us all,
Christmas soon will be here.
The fire is burning;
the room’s all aglow,
outside the snow’s falling,
so gentle and slow.


New Release ‘Young Ebenezer ~ Confronts the School Bully’

Happy Sunday. We are so close now to the release of ‘Young Ebenezer ~ Confronts the School Bully’ by Rose English due to be released on Tuesday 1st October 2019.  We just found out that October is also #NationalBullyPrevention month too.

Whilst the theme of the book is bullying it is also based around ‘Trick or Treating’.   It’s a #Halloween treat much better than sweets! Told in lyrical form, a story in verse. It is aimed at children 8 – 12 year olds as it is rather long for a story poem which brings me also to the fact that Thursday 3rd October is  #NationalPoetryDay.

Young Ebenezer Teaser from YouTube


 

Grandfather Time,
chimes out loud and clear,
he’s telling us all,
Christmas soon will be here.
The fire is burning;
the room’s all aglow,
outside the snow’s falling,
so gentle and slow.

Many young boys and girls
are on their Playstations,
X-boxes, Nintendos,
throughout all the nation.
Yet one little fellow
is still not content,
to get even more presents,
is his main intent.

Now young Ebenezer,
is a naughty young lad,
not sharing with others,
he really is bad.
So Grandfather Time has
been watching him grow,
with a feeling of sadness
that is making him low.

It is time for the boy,
a lesson to learn,
that he has to be good,
for the presents to earn.
He must learn to share,
with the girls and the boys
and learn how to give
and not take others’ toys.

Young Ebenezer Hallowen Teaser Part 01

 I bring you a treat,
a Halloween story
of young Ebenezer
and best friend, young Rory.
I watch over the boys
I am Grandfather Time,
and I will tell you this tale
in rhythm and rhyme.

Small spacer

It is All Hallows Eve
and the kids in the schools
are really excited
to go home, dress as ghouls.
There’ll be vampires and ghosts
and monsters galore,
stepping out on the streets
to knock on your door.

Small spacer

The school bell rings loud
it is the end of the day.
The kids pack up their books,
and are soon on their way.
With his best friend in tow
Eb leaves the school yard,
they run all the way home
with their legs pumping hard.

Small spacer

With their homes now in sight,
the boys sprint to their gates
Rory punches the air
tells Eb “Don’t you be late.”
“I won’t. That’s a promise.”
Eb yells with a smile,
a little bit breathless
after running that mile.

Small spacer

Boing, Boing I chime out,
as Eb reaches our door.
Boing, Boing once again,
as my hands now reach four.
The house it smells yummy,
Mum has made a great feast
and like the Grinch on the film
Dad will carve the roast beast.

Small spacer

School bag and blazer
are thrown without care,
and land in a heap
at the base of the stair.
“Go back. Pick them up.”
is dads’ strict command.
“Or there’ll be no treats,
with neither plea nor demand.”

Small spacer

Eb does as he’s told
so he won’t miss the treats
or his first Halloween,
out with mates on the streets.
Dinner is rushed,
and fills up his tummy.
There is still room for sweets,
and all things that are yummy.

Small spacer
