The Hobbit with Training Wheels!

August 27, 2012 at 8:41 am by greendragon  - 

DragonCon is nearly here, and here’s some news of a great giveaway which will be happening at TORn’s booth at the convention.

Those of you who have kids, take note! In addition to some big stars from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, DragonCon this year will also feature the little star authors of Nimpentoad, a children’s fantasy book.  The furry bright-eyed little Nimpentoad is tired of being picked on by the bigger and meaner creatures of the ancient shadowy Grunwald Forest. He convinces his fellow Niblings to make the perilous journey to a castle where they hope to find refuge.  Along the way, they are confronted by ravenous goblins, trolls, rhinotaurs, and other perils. But with teamwork and Nimpentoad’s leadership, the Niblings outwit these menaces.

Nimpentoad offers a great way to introduce kids to the fantasy genre. The story’s humor and implicit lessons on bullying, teamwork, perseverance and leadership please parents, while the stunning images and writing style entrance young readers, as evidenced by 55 Amazon 5-star ratings. TORN previously reviewed the book here.

How do you get a copy? Staff at TORn’s booth, in the Hyatt Regency (Exhibit Level) at DragonCon will be giving away some signed copies of Nimpentoad! Or order a signed copy at the Nimpentoad website.
