Sir Licksalot book SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 9 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Children's Chapter Book, "Sir Licksalot & The Maverick Fools" (ISBN-10: 1-60474-917-2), wins a 2009 Readers Favorite Award. In a statement made by Author D.L. Carroll, "This book was written for tweens who hate to read. Providing these children with a story that they can actually enjoy is inspiring. To be recognized by industry professionals is incredibly rewarding. I am currently working on the second book in the series."

Readers Favorite was created to help authors with honest reviews of their work and to assist them in obtaining more recognition and exposure through a respected Book Award Contest. In addition to the Award Contest, Readers Favorite also provides free reviews for authors and has been asked to review for such renowned authors as James Patterson, David Baldacci, Stephanie Meyer, and is trusted by prominent publishers like Penguin, Random House, Hachette, and Thomas Nelson.

Readers Favorite has also been selected by Amazon to be an Amazon Vine Reviewer, and over the years has earned the respect and gratitude of countless authors, publishers and publicists. An awards ceremony will be held in November 2010 at the Vegas Valley Book Festival, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Award quotes from Readers Favorite Judges:
• "Sir Licksalot & The Maverick Fools is appropriate for third, fourth, and fifth graders. I think it might also be used in a middle school Reading Coach Program as a high interest/low level reader."
• "The Plot is Original, Entertaining and Imaginative."
• "Children will relate to the plot."

About the Book:
"Sir Licksalot & The Maverick Fools" (ISBN: 1-60474-917-2) is for Ages 9-12. Author D.L. Carroll intertwines alienation, adventure, and tween humor as the story of one boys struggle to fit in unfolds. This story demonstrates the acceptance of individuality and the power of friendship. Using dialogue children can relate to, the author captures even the most reluctant reader's attention.

Blaze N. Haught, once the most popular kid in fifth grade, becomes a loner when his parents move from their big city condo to a beach house. His parents agree to adopt a stray dog, Sir Licksalot, so long as Blaze promises to make an effort to meet new friends. Finding it difficult to fit in with the neighborhood kids, Blaze competes in challenges to win their friendship. A competition is underway when the boys notice their sisters, and Sir Licksalot, have disappeared from the mysterious water fountain in Blaze's backyard.

While searching for the girls and Sir Licksalot, the boys find themselves on a death-defying adventure in Mavericks Extreme Water Cave.

Who said, "Surfs up"? Who will survive?
