Day 07 ‘Young Ebenezer ~ Confronts the School Bully’

Book 07 on the calendar was Book 2 in the Young Ebenezer series from Rose English Young Ebenezer – Confronts the School Bully.

‘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?

The story of ‘Ebenezer and the Bully’ is a magical rhyming tale of behaviour matters, and the importance of being kind. It’s a treat for families to share or for reading alone, aimed at children aged 8-12 years old. With characters loosely based around the Charles Dickens classic ‘A Christmas Carol’, you’ll meet the Ghost of Christmas Past – a golden red puppy named Miss Ruby Heart – along with the Grim Reaper who will surprise Jacob by revealing his future self.

Day 04 ‘Dragonfly Pie’

Book 04 on the advent calendar is the wonderful Dragonfly Pie – The Tales of Willow Park’ ‘ by Sarah Parkinson.

Blurb

This rhyming story starts with the geese on Willow Park lake who are unable to sleep because of the dragonflies early morning dance. The geese feel desperate and decide that making a Dragonfly Pie is the only way to bring peace and quiet to the lake. But the geese can’t catch dragonflies! This is where Grebe comes to the rescue but not in the way you would expect….

This tale demonstrates how people can set aside their differences and get along by finding common ground.

Taken from the back cover:

Early each morning as the geese try to doze,

the dragonflies buzz in their noisy dance shows.

The geese want to bake a dragonfly pie

To make the buzzing go quiet, but this plan goes awry…

Is there someone there who can save the day?

And will anyone enjoy the buzzing ballet?

Beautiful illustrations
