Good Day Folks,  10656290_10153090139793056_406760879_ncerfiicate

Just wow so surprised and excited. My first book James Saves the Moon was awarded the Gold medal from Readers Favorite International Book Awards Gold Medal Children’s Fantasy /Sci-Fi.   https://readersfavorite.com/2014-award-contest-winners.htm#book11891 The awards were announced September 1.  I was expecting honorable mention. Here is the review of James Saves the Moon from Readers Favorite. https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/11891  Thank you Readers Favorite reviewers and judges for awarding James Saves the Moon with the gold.

Reviewed by Bil Howard for Readers’ Favorite

“James Saves the Moon”, written by Wendy Nystrom, is a delightful children’s picture book that combines a child’s imagination with Icelandic mythology. The illustrations by Jim Weidman, in a blue tone with colorful characters, lend a mythological feel to the story of a young boy (James), who sees the moon over one of the high mountains and decides that if he climbs to the top of the mountain he can reach out and touch the moon. Slipping quietly out of his bedroom window, he sets out on his journey. On his way up the mountain he stumbles over some rocks and disturbs one of Iceland’s mythological figures (Syvok), who joins him on his journey. They suddenly realize that unless they move faster, the moon will leave before they make it to the top of the mountain. In order that they can move faster, Syvok summons a dragon (Matthias), who allows them to ride on his back. They discover that the moon is stuck on the mountain and they will have to help get it unstuck. The three work as a team to set the moon free and while doing so, James truly does touch the moon.

The color of the illustrations by Jim Weidman and the very well-written story by Wendy Nystrom make “James Saves the Moon” a rare treasure for a children’s picture book. Its simplicity combined with the kind of story that stirs the imagination of a child make it something that will stick in the mind of the reader for a lifetime. This book gives a little bit of a taste of the colorful and flavorful history of Iceland and its traditions. It is highly recommended for its ability to help stir a child’s imagination. A wonderfully simple and delightful tale.

I am truly honored and proud to receive this award. I began writing while living in Iceland 2005, while keeping my then 7 year old son up on his english while he was becoming fluent in Icelandic. We were running out of books he liked and I was rather upset their were not more adventure books. My son wakes up and tells me the adventures he has while the rest of us are sleeping. One day for real he ran to tell me the moon is sitting on the mountain. “I am going to climb the mountain and touch the moon” The next day after I had a wonderful dream I hand wrote the 1st draft of James Saves the Moon. My son and Iceland unlocked my imagination and I began to have vivid dreams and writing more adventures. I now have 4 books adventures in this series published with Anchor Group Publishing http://anchorgrouppublishing.com/, https://www.facebook.com/anchorgrouppublishing.  I am working on two adult novels and two more in my kids series. I want to thank Anchor Group Publishing for adding me. I love being part of Anchor Group Publishing. I also want to thank my fans, family and friends all of you have supported me on this writing adventure. I really want children to have adventure and open their imagination so in the future they will bring new ideas for our world.

This story is truly a birthday adventure. The book will make you smile, laugh, sad and happy. Jenny is all excited about her birthday. She runs with party favors to get things ready for her party and trips and falls and breaks her arm. Her mother takes her the hospital and she needs surgery to correct it. Jenny is upset no birthday party with her four best friends. The rest of her family comes to the hospital and try to cheer her up.

Something Scary in Frogville Adventure!

Standard

Good Day Folks,

Something Scary in Frogville by Perry Perkins 5 stars

Now I know what a frog town is like.  Sure enjoyed my adventure at Frogville

The story is filled with descriptive fun characters.  I enjoyed the story. The illustrations enhance the story. Your reader will enjoy the story, and learn that things are not what they appear to be.  Being nice to someone who may stutter, or is clumsy does not mean they are scrary or cannot help.  The lesson is woven nicely into the exciting story.

Children ages 7 to 9 and adults will enjoy this story.

Frogville is having a rough year. It is and the fish have moved to the center of the nearby lake so the frogs fishing poles do not reach where the fish are.  So they must eat greens and cabbage mostly. Then to top it all off there is something  big in the woods at the edge of frogville, which is close to the Bugaboo’s home.  The Mayor decides that Bumblefoot Bugaboo will investigate and slay the stranger. Bumblefoots real name is Bartholomew but everyone called him Bumblefoot because he had large feet and tripped often. The Mayor gave him the great spear  as he reminds Bartholomew the battle to claim their town. That evening when Bartholomew and his younger sister Emma hears the sounds he sets out to find the stranger. As Bartholomew is thinking of how to confront the huge beast his sister  appearsand starts asking questions. They find out what he is and why he is there.  They discover  Neville a Nutinia and he left his home because he was picked on by the way he spoke. He stuttered. Then he lost his glasses in the lake and can’t  see very well. They become friends and they take him to see the Mayor.Frogville folks get their fishing poles out and Emma finds his glasses. Then Nelville puts them on and swims out with his fishing net and brings back a net full of fish. The Mayor decides,they must have a community meal and invites Nelville to join.
