The Book of Wisdom-ish

Adventure begins with a book... And an A.

The Book of Wisdom-ish is where short stories meet a novel, set in the faery tale kingdom of Hearts Melting. The tales are based on well-known sayings, held together by one girl’s investigation into the mysterious holes in the sky. And scones.

Wielding only a potato masher, twelve-year-old Mary must deal with a demon (proving a book should be judged by its cover). Then she notices a peculiar sky-hole…

Grass-eating faery Draxen demonstrates his friendship, Cook is challenged by the proof of the puddings and two-headed giant Crackncrag struggles to be understood. Cities made of glass and myth-magical creatures also feature. As the power behind the sky-holes increases its grip on the land, a dark purpose is revealed. With Mary leading the charge, all must unite to save their peculiar world.

The Book of Wisdom-ish is available to order from Amazon or on request at most bookshops. For For ages 9+.
