Is your enchanted garden hose attacking you?
Monday, August 20, 2007  7:35:00 AM

by Stan Swanson

If it is, then you must be in the village of Pennywhistle. And maybe if you squint your eyes and gaze down Druid Lane, you will see Hobart Hucklebuck and his friends trying to discover why that hose is drenching you in water instead of simply doing the job it is supposed to. From the very first page, The Misadventures of Hobart Hucklebuck will transport you to this wonderful world where magic and enchantment are simply a part of every day life. Until the day enchanted items begin losing their power...

Denver, CO – August 20, 2007 – Stony Meadow Publishing announced today that The Misadventures of Hobart Hucklebuck, their first children’s book, is available through selected outlets. The book, aimed at readers 8-12, is a new fantasy book from author Stan Swanson.

“I began writing this book just about the time Harry Potter arrived on the scene,” Swanson said in a recent interview. “Although I hadn’t read the Potter books at that time, I really didn’t want to be compared to the series or for people to say I was jumping on the bandwagon. I put the manuscript away in a desk drawer and went on to other things. It gathered dust there for quite some time until my wife suggested that maybe it was time for Hobart to introduce himself to the world.”

After reading the book again for the first time in years, Swanson suddenly saw that his wife was right. It was indeed time for Hobart to peek his head out from between those pages. Another re-write or two was all it took for The Misadventures of Hobart Hucklebuck to become a reality.

Things are not as they should be in Pennywhistle. Enchanted toasters are not toasting, enchanted sprinklers are not sprinkling and Hobart Hucklebuck’s origami messenger birds are suddenly attacking him. Someone seems to be draining the power from all of the enchanted items in the village. But who could it be and why have they implicated Hobart’s grandfather? The Misadventures of Hobart Hucklebuck follows Hobart and his friends, Specks Spacklethack and Rosie Rumpleskirt, as they try to solve this mystery and free Hobart’s grandfather from the Tower of Tribulation on Mumblemonk Mountain. The trio’s investigation into the mysterious happenings on Druid Lane get them into hot water more than once and ultimately brings them dangerously close to disaster not only for themselves, but the entire village of Pennywhistle.

The book is available in paperback and hard cover through normal distribution channels. Review copies are available upon request.
