THE ADVENTURES OF MOOKIE

Edward Lysak

This "sextet fabula" is just the beginning. In this children's fantasy the young reader is introduced to a very unusual little boy.


Mookie is a wonderful little boy who could never do anything right. Poor Mookie! It was not that he was bad or that he tried to get into trouble; it just happened. Poor,poor Mookie.
The adventures are told by grandpa to his grandchildren. As he spins his stories, the reader begins to understand that Mookie is magical. Grandpa's "tall tales" develop a character who is lovable, vulnerable and different. How he is different, is what the six stories are all about. Having an alien birth has enabled Mookie to have certain 'powers'. Mookie strives to learn who he is and why he is so different. The problems that Mookie encounters are typical; solving them is not. Grandpa weaves values and lessons into his stories that will appeal to grandchildren around the world.
Grandpa was thrilled when one of his stories won third place for children's fantasy in the Union County Writers' club of North Carolina contest. Can you guess which of the six stories placed third?

Grandpa hopes you like his Mookie stories.

Hi Rachel, I finished and yes I feel unfulfilled. I hate reading an unfinished book. But I did. However I am glad that you invited me for a read because otherwise, I would not have. I usually read kid-fantasy. This was a departure for me that I thoroughly enjoyed. You are a good writer and sto... view book

Hi Dawn, Thank you for getting the ending of your delightful book on authonomy. I hate it when I get involved in a book and it is incomplete with no hope of knowing the ending. The awakening of desire in Joy was beautifully written. Frankly I didn't think that you nor joy were capable of such bea... view book

Hi Jan J, I've finished and I repeat: This is a GOOD book. If you can put an ending that lives up to your beginning, it will be on my shelf. Can't wait!(I really hate reading unfinished books.)
