About the Author

Jon Etter was born and raised (one assumes in a barn, judging by his manners) and still lives in that vast middle part of America that holds little interest to those of us in the civilized world, although its natives seem to tolerate it well enough. As a father of two and high school English teacher, one would think him capable of being more than the subpar scribbler of silly stories that he is, although I do believe he is improving slightly. You may visit him online at www.jonetter.com if you engage in such activities.

Quentin Q. Quacksworth has been a professional narrator for a long time--too long, some of us would argue--and has narrated many "proper" and "morally improving" books, including Honest Jim and the Do-Right Lads, for which he somehow won a Blabby Award for Narratorial Excellence. Feel free to ask him about it or just talk to him for five minutes, and he'll find a way to bring it up. He refuses to have anything to do with "electronic mail" or "the inter-webs," so contact him via, I don't know, messenger pigeon or something.

Reviews

"This is a rollicking romp with themes of friendship, forgiveness, and the value of books. It calls itself 'A Fairytale for Readers of All Ages' and I'd feel comfortable giving it to my 10-year-old or my 13-year-old and I quite enjoyed it at age 45." --Lara Lillibridge, author of Girlish and Mama, Mama, Only Mama
"This chubby brown protagonist full of flaws and wit and heart is quite welcome." --Kirkus
"This isn't just any fairy book: it's dreadful . . . A charming read with a quirky narrator, a brazen heroine, and eccentric characters." --Booklist
"VERDICT: A charming addition to middle grade shelves."--School Library Journal
". . . an unexpectedly funny ode to books and the knowledge that they bring." --Children's Book Review
