So… welcome Spooktacular hoppers et al! Thank you all for dropping by. Since this is my very first big hop, I thought I would keep it simple, and I know you all have a lot more Blogs to whizz over to. So here goes…
I AM GIVING AWAY 4 Paperback copies of Mungai and the Goa Constrictor (US only) to 4 random commenters. The winners will be announced on November 1st.
‘Beware of predators in the guise of friends’
Wouldn’t it be perfect to get everything you want in life without lifting a single finger or claw! Mungai thinks it would, and goes all out to get it in a humorous tale of greed, consumerism and the environment… and fermented apple juice!
Told through the eyes of animals, the reader is taken on a compelling journey through the jungle, together with a wealth of colourful and enjoyable characters, conspiracies and the unlikely friendships forged between the various species of the animal kingdom.
A timeless tale for children and adults alike
An excerpt from Mungai and the Goa Constrictor
They journeyed on, getting deeper and deeper into the jungle, and then changed tack and veered towards the edge, but not in the direction of the two-legs. They were, in fact, quite far away from them when they eventually managed to track down the mysterious monkey.
They caught a fleeting glimpse of him, just as he caught a glimpse of Hogbog, and watched in awe as he disappeared with unparalleled speed.
“Wow!” said Bodger. “Did you see that?” he asked anyone who was listening. “No wonder he’s never been captured.”
“Hogbog,” called Caw-Caw. “You’re on again.”
Hogbog scurried round in circles near the spot where they had last seen him, and within minutes was on the trail again. He forged ahead, sniffing and snuffling after his quarry, refusing to be beaten (after all, he did have a reputation to uphold) until finally, there above him, in the highest part of a tree, sat the Oracle.
Good luck with the Giveaway 🙂
