Day 01 ‘Young Ebenezer ~ A New Christmas Carol’

The first book featured was by Rose English. A Christmas Carol but for kids, brought into current times where children are often found playing on the latest technology rather than being out with friends. The book is a story in verse, a rhythmical read that many children love to listen to. Narrated by a magical longcase clock ~ Grandfather Time.

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.

‘Young Ebenezer’ #Promo & New Release

#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.


Introducing Rose English

Rose English 02

Living on ‘England’s Green & Pleasant Land’, among the gentle rolling hills of the Herefordshire Countryside, Rose’s house is wall to wall books. She even has a ‘Leaning Tower of Paperbacks‘.

Rose is a dreamer, preferring a simple & quiet life. Often spending time alone, although never lonely, being ever surrounded by great characters when lost in a good book. She loves theatre and the arts, adoring live performances on stage. Rose has very eclectic tastes.

Working as a school librarian, and sharing her love of books with children, was the best job she ever had. However, life moves on and another chapter was only a page turn away.

Now working in an entirely different library, in Hereford’s Wye Valley NHS Trust Hospital, Rose spends her day issuing ‘Medical Equipment’.

Rose also has a little friend called Miss Ruby Heart a ruby King Charles Spaniel who reviews Children’s Books.

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.

New Halloween Read coming soon

Young Ebenezer – Confronts the School Bully

First of all Happy Weekend Book Lovers, sorry we have not been around for a while would you believe we are actually writing. It’s true, I kid you not. So during #CampNaNoWriMo we worked on our poetry book Butterflies & Blue Skies ~ Poetry & Prose 2′ but we got off course and picked up on our #Selkie Folklore story.

Today however, we went off on a completely different tangent, but it was very productive. We actually completed the second book in the Young Ebenezer series. This time Young Ebenezer gets to go ‘Trick or Treating’ for the very first time. Sadly Jacob Marley the school bully is out stealing all the candy from the other boys and girls.

With the help of Grandfather Time and Miss Ruby Heart (me of course) we hope to get Jacob to change his ways.
